On The Cover
The sustainable remodel of this kitchen in Austin, TX, involved replacing laminate countertops with slabs of Vetrazzo recycled glass, which was manufactured by Polycor Inc. of Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.
Complementing the brightly colored flecks of glass found in the Vetrazzo is a feature wall comprised of recycled mosaic glass tile that had been originally used for a pool design.
