Anyone seen or done this type of bathroom floor?

I was doing some work at a new custom home and saw this type of shower/bathroom floor design, never seen this before. The entire bathroom floor is large format stone. The area that would normally not be wet has normally set stone on the floor. The "wet" area (far half in the photo) has a sunken area and drain below it, probably 6-12 inches lower than the dry floor area.

They used adjustable pedistals under composite grating to level the wet area floor and then set the stone, with no grout, perfectly level with the other half of the floor. So water just disappears between the stone and no slope on the floor, not even the shower (to the left in the photo).

They did the entire patio around the pool exactly the same, at the same height as the interior floor.

I’ve seen pedestal systems for thick stone at Coverings Trade Show in the past. But it’s all been exterior use. The system looks fantastic for all sorts of areas from ground level to rooftops. But I’ve never seen anything for an interior application like you show.

This is a structural steel building so I suppose anything is possible inside. You are correct in calling it "pedistal" I was not sure what to call it. The pedistals have pieces to correct for the below slope and anchor in, and adjustments for correct height.

If you have money, you do not need to fuss with slope. This is a very high end build, if I were to guess, well over $10M for the construction alone. I know the property alone was $2.7M with no house.

Wow, that’s slick
Didn’t know the pedestal system could be scaled down to a bathroom size, only seen it on ext decks. Pretty sweet IMO

I believe peygran has the leveling system, but I’ve never seen it used like this. Any idea what’s below it for waterproofing and a drain set-up. In be curious if they use a preslope with a liner and drain over the total area, and then use the pedestal feet to get heights of floor right.
