Mathematical tiling

Kent Conservation and Restoration offer mathematical tiling as one of their impressive specialist skills. Many buildings still exist particularly in Sussex and Kent, KCR's heartland, featuring this highly specialised and most attractive form of tiling that is often mistaken for conventional brickwork.

It is thought that mathematical tiling was originally introduced to improve and weatherproof old timber-framed buildings, but then became part of our architectural heritage as it grew in popularity from the early 18th century - eventually becoming a status symbol among the wealthy property owners of the time.
