Q stone by Mario Bolivar, house made from porcelain

In Monterrey, Mexico, architect Mario Bolivar designed a house with a jagged profile to reference its mountainous surrounding. The exterior is clad in 1,200 square metres of Q_Stone by Provenza, a UV- and extreme temperature–resistant porcelain that mimics the look of natural quartzite.
