A refurbishment inspired by fashion

A fashion landmark and meeting point in the city of Tel Aviv, the Ramat Aviv Mall offers a unique shopping experience with a wide range of shops, restaurants and cultural activities. Inside, there are shops of major fashion brands such as Louis Vuitton, Carolina Herrera or Rolex, which attract large numbers of shoppers every day. Faced with the need to refurbish the floor of the common areas, MYS Architects had the challenge of not altering their special character and, at the same time, minimising the impact on traffic, as the works had to be carried out while regular activity was taking place.

Its original design – created by the same studio and inspired by Galleria Vittorio Emanuel II in Milan – has been fully preserved in the renovation. The sophisticated atmosphere that contextualises the world of fashion and haute couture has been maintained through the use of natural materials in warm tones, such as wood, brass and Dekton, which reproduces the texture and colour of stone.

Classic design with contemporary materials

Among the various architectural elements of the shopping mall are the corridors with curved false ceilings, which provide a geometrical balance. The floor tiles were replaced by large slabs of Dekton Gada, a very natural colour inspired by quartzite, which adds a very elegant touch to the spaces. Domoos graphite black details finish off this refined and sober look. ‘Between the Dekton slabs we integrated brass trims and in the squares we created a special geometric pattern defining the meeting point of the space,’ explains Zehavit Simovitch Liberman, architect at MYS Architects.

Technical advantages

‘In technical terms, the 8 mm Dekton slabs in 144 x 320 cm format were a good solution for a quick glue application on the existing floor,’ says the architect, adding that this made it possible to speed up the work during night-time construction works. ‘The thickness of the Dekton slab, combined with its strength, allowed us to make minimal adaptations between the shops and the public spaces,’ she concludes.

A design that reflects quality and sustainability

Natural colours and a very contemporary design renew the aesthetics of the new showroom of Salboy, a property development company based in Salford, UK. In this way the project by Studio Power has achieved an image in keeping with the success of this company, which has delivered more than 2,400 homes across the UK and focuses on the development of high quality residential accommodation. Domis Construction helped bring the project to life from conception to construction, while Granite Tops UK was the manufacturer.

The multidisciplinary architecture studio chose Dekton by Cosentino surfaces for this project, not only because of their natural appearance, but also because of their durability and zero carbon footprint throughout their life cycle, thus contributing to an environment focused on sustainability.

Light and a sense of movement

Among the wide range of available designs, the team of architects chose Dekton Danae to bring the spaces to life. This colour, which is part of Dekton Natural Collection, plays with different shades of beige to create a sandy toned surface that reflects light and captures movement. It was supplied in different thicknesses for use as interior cladding, stairs and furniture. The 20 mm thickness was used for the stairs, while 12 mm surfaces were used for the reception counter and 8 mm for the cladding of walls, columns and planters. “Danae was the perfect shade for this project. We were impressed with the versatility of the different thicknesses. Danae can achieve really sharp details, such as in the planters and stairs, and its strength and durability are ideal for this application”, says Sam Power, Director of Studio Power.

A durable material

It is precisely the technical advantages offered by Dekton that make it the perfect material for this type of application in spaces where high traffic is expected and where durability is required. Dekton is highly resistant to scratches, stains, fire and heat. It is therefore perfect for commercial and residential projects involving stair surfaces, cladding, flooring and furniture, which will stay as good as new for a long time.

A home for families of hospitalised children

To support and care for the families of hospitalised children, the Ronald McDonald Foundation, established in 1994, has provided parents with warm, welcoming homes in the vicinity of hospitals. In France alone more than 57,000 families have stayed in the ten homes run by the Foundation. Cosentino has donated material and equipped the kitchen of one of these homes, located in Paris, near the Robert-Debré hospital. This is Cosentino’s small part to help build a welcoming space that allows hospitalised children to be close to their families, thus maintaining an emotional balance that is crucial for their healing.

The Nouvelle Maison house in Paris was built two years ago next to the second leading children’s hospital in Europe, and welcomes families of children from all over the world. Families have free access to the building and have a separate bedroom at their disposal. The kitchen is a common area open 24 hours a day for parents’ use. Here they can relax, socialise with other families and recharge their batteries away from the hospital environment.

Warm and functional design

Fabricator Adequate shaped the plans designed by Saint-Lô-based kitchen design studio Lejamtel, who chose Dekton Sirius to equip the kitchen of this house. Specifically, 25 square metres of Dekton Sirius were used for the worktops. This black shade adds depth to the atmosphere thanks to its textured appearance and greenish hues. It is the perfect contrast to the palette of light tones used in the furniture, flooring and walls.

Maison Ronald  - Cosentino MaisonMcDonald 18oct2021 4 159

For many years to come

In addition to its modern and refined design, Dekton has the ideal technical features for use in this high traffic kitchen. It is easy to clean and resistant to heat, stains and scratches, making it the perfect solution for a communal kitchen. Furthermore, its easy maintenance makes it a material with great durability, keeping it looking as good as new.

Doing our bit

As in other projects, the Ronald McDonald Foundation and its partners, as well as Cosentino through its donation of products, have the role of accompanying and supporting all these families who are going through a difficult time. All funding comes from donations. “All these drops of water create oceans and make it possible to finance, build and run these homes”, says Franck Pérez, Director of the Maison Ronald McDonald Paris. “Having such a beautiful kitchen with such large spaces and worktops will create memorable evenings for children and parents alike”, he concludes.

Elegant design for the lobby and the meeting room

More than an office complex, Continental Towers in Illinois is a space for collaboration and connection. This was the driving force behind the refurbishment process of its main lobby, which connects the three towers, and its service area, which was transformed into a meeting point. Whitney Architects, the firm in charge of the project, worked closely with the client to achieve a refreshed and contemporary look for these spaces.

For this purpose, a material was needed which, in addition to being aesthetically strong, could withstand the heavy daily traffic of people and metal trolleys on which the company’s material is delivered. The client had already thought of Dekton as the ideal material for this, especially because of its hardness and low porosity, and preferred the Soke and Kelya colours for the interior cladding of both rooms.

Entrance to the three towers

The main lobby connects the three office towers and welcomes hundreds of people every day. In this area, Soke was chosen as the cladding solution for the entrance to each tower. The grey colour inspired by classic cement adds a touch of elegance and modern style, perfect for this ambience. Furthermore, the architect wanted to integrate modern and stylish signs for each entrance. Cosentino therefore proposed cutting the number of each tower directly into the Dekton slabs with a water jet. In addition, custom lightning was integrated behind the cut-out letters, so that the solution becomes an illuminated sign, achieving a very personal look and realising the architect’s idea.

Leisure and work area

The other refurbished space is the CT Social Club, a space in the office complex designed for meeting, relaxation and informal gatherings of the towers’ employees and offering spectacular views. In this area, the employees can have lunch, meet, work or simply relax. One of the walls was clad in Dekton Keyla, with a built-in fireplace and a television, adding design and an elegant atmosphere. This colour, inspired by dark marble with light veining, is the key feature and dialogues with the geometric patterned flooring and the touch of colour in the furniture. The result is a stunning, versatile space designed to be enjoyed for years to come.

Common spaces full of design in North Carolina

Among the 250 companies housed on the 2,800-hectare Research Triangle Park corporate campus in North Carolina, a recent project stands out for its innovative use of design to create a space for collaboration, creativity and interaction. Elisa Christopher, from Phillips Architecture design studio, was commissioned for this project in which the company wanted to give a new look to a lobby and staircase area using Dekton by Cosentino.

The client wanted a material that would surprise potential and existing employees and create a striking appearance at first glance. The designer had already worked with Cosentino in the past and thought that it would be the ideal material to add character and elegance to the space. At Cosentino’s industrial park in Almería, Christopher was able to see the product first hand and discover the endless design possibilities that Dekton has to offer. Taking advantage of its technical and aesthetic properties on such a large campus was a challenge for her and she jumped at the chance.

Balanced contemporary aesthetics

The colour selected for this project was Soke, inspired by classic cement floors with realistic veining on a nuanced grey background. The advantage of this material is mainly that, in addition to providing a contemporary aesthetics with a concrete look and feel, it is virtually maintenance free and offers great versatility for different applications. In the case of this project, it was used for interior cladding, the lift surrounds and the main staircase. In the last two applications, it featured a modern lighting design around it.

The final look creates a lot of visual harmony and brings consistency to the design concept. Soke’s simple colour is perfect when combined with other features such as, in this case, the geometric patterned rug and the wood and metal details.

The beauty of marble to clad the façade of a hospital

DYS architecture chose Dekton for the stylish façade cladding of the Leon Judah Blackmore Pavilion at Vancouver General Hospital. The renovation of the building is a tribute to Leon Judah Blackmore, a Polish immigrant who made Canada his home and flourished as a businessman and real estate developer. In memory of his passion and contribution to the community, his philanthropic foundation donated $18.4 million to the hospital after his death.

Two years after that, the hospital’s Centenary Pavilion has been renovated and now bears his name as a tribute. The Vancouver-based Cosentino team collaborated on the project by supplying the Dekton Aura15 cladding material used on the façade that frames the entrance to the building.

The perfect match

Inspired by natural marbles such as Carrara and Calacatta, Aura15 was chosen for its elegance and technical features. Its white background crossed by grey veins blends perfectly with the grey edges of the façade and the silver signs with the name of the pavilion. The result is an elegant style that brings calm and balance to the hospital atmosphere, where Aura15 adds the sophistication of stone.

For many years to come

Thanks to its technical features, Dekton provides a highly durable material which requires no maintenance and is unaffected by wear and tear, UV rays, extreme temperatures and stains such as graffiti, making it ideal for the emergency entrance of this hospital, which is exposed daily to heavy vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Therefore, although the initial specifications for the project called for marble, the ultra-compact Dekton surface was chosen for its high durability and ease of maintenance. Sustainability was also a plus when choosing it, as Dekton improves the energy efficiency of the building. Thus, Aura15 will be the face of the Leon Judah Pavilion for many years to come.

Macael marble for two university buildings

The construction of the new Government Pavilion and Auditorium as part of the extension of the Teatinos campus of the University of Málaga has been awarded the ‘Obra en Blanco Macael’ [Construction in White Macael Marble] Prize. The new Government Pavilion, the Auditorium and the open spaces designed by architects Roberto Ercilla, Rubén A. Alcolea and Jorge Tárrago of alcolea+tárrago arquitectos illustrate the possibilities of using marble for flooring, ventilated façades, ceilings, staircases, claddings and benches.

Scale, design, sustainability and functionality are the main strengths of these new buildings in terms of architectural value. The Prize also recognises the benchmark value for the use and benefits of this natural stone, which is the star of the whole design, as well as the successful combination between the structural elements and the landscaping project on the Louis Pasteur Boulevard outside.

Simple and sustainable architecture

The simple geometric forms that make up the architectural design of the Government Pavilion and the Auditorium give centre stage to two cloister style central courtyards. The almost exclusive use of marble as the only material throughout the design gives the spaces an elegant, classic and simple style. Macael marble also brings added value in terms of sustainability, one of the key aspects of the design.

In terms of structure, both the Government Pavilion and the Auditorium are made of reinforced concrete and feature a ventilated façade with external rock wool insulation, which reduces energy consumption and improves comfort indoors. Another highlight of the project is the glazing of the façades, which features low thermal transmittance double glazing that allow plenty of natural light to pass through, thus optimising energy consumption.

Geometry and functionality

The complex comprises two large volumes of simple lines in Macael marble and outdoor spaces including a garden, a car park and an outdoor garden. A number of administrative spaces have been created inside the Government Pavilion. To this end, the perimeter of the pavilion is used as a service area and the rest as open and flexible work areas, depending on the needs.

Similarly, the Auditorium houses a series of lobbies surrounding the main hall. Both buildings are connected by a space sheltered by a pergola and paved with Macael marble, from Scalea by Cosentino. The function room of the Auditorium, with a capacity of 795 people, will host institutional events of a social, cultural and business nature.

Landscaping and energy efficiency

The outdoor landscaping project features species native to the area to optimise water resources and promote soil recovery, thus contributing to making this new space a sustainable achievement for the University of Málaga. The project also includes a photovoltaic plant with 250 panels, chargers for electric vehicles, a smart lighting system, a grey water recycling system and a rainwater collection and storage system.

Spain at the Dubai Expo

Under the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, the 2020 World Expo finally opened its doors in Dubai on 1st October, almost a year later than planned due to the delay caused by the pandemic. The Expo will be attended by more than 200 participants and will run until 31st March 2022. The Spanish Pavilion addresses participation and sustainability as the main axes of its design thanks to the project ‘Personas lugares’ (People places), by the team of Atxu Amann, Andrés Cánovas and Nicolás Maruri (Temperaturas Extremas Arquitectos).

With a surface area of 5,800 m2, the Spanish Pavilion features a large square that integrates a series of conical volumes that stand out in the space like the chimneys of a thermal power plant, providing shade and ventilation thanks to their ventilated façades. For the interior spaces, passive bioclimatic systems have been used to support ventilation and cooling. Additionally, part of its cladding consists of photovoltaic panels and involves the recovery of 90% of the materials used.

Sustainable and versatile materials

Among the materials used in the design of the project, Dekton and Silestone stand out. Cosentino has provided a total of 3,000 m2 of its Dekton ultracompact surface for different uses as well as countertops and bars made from Silestone. Thus, the Spanish Pavilion becomes a real showroom of materials where the great versatility and variety, as well as the alignment with the values and themes of the Expo, are on display. Sustainability, resource efficiency, circular economy and innovation are the keys to Cosentino’s materials.

Large exhibition spaces

The floor of the main exhibition gallery, which houses the spectacular exhibition ‘El bosque de la Inteligencia’ (The Forest of Intelligence), designed in partnership by External Reference (Carmelo Zappulla) and Onionlab (Aleix Fernández), features a large format (155 x 140 cm) floor in Dekton Radium (700 m2), from the Industrial series. Radium, a colour with the appearance of rusted, acid-degraded steel plate, offers a design that blends perfectly with the ochre and brown shades of the creative proposal. The blue green forest stands out and welcomes visitors to this space whose theme is in line with the sustainable production of Radium, which incorporates up to 80% recycled materials in its composition.

Meanwhile, the stunning Dekton Halo Xgloss finish shines on the floor of the foyer, another of the iconic elements of this Pavilion, which hosts the art installation ‘Dinamo’, created by Daniel Canogar in collaboration with the composer Francisco López.

The wall and floor cladding of the bathrooms, foyers and kitchen in the Basement Floor, are made of 4 mm thick Dekton slabs in Kreta colour. Meanwhile, the elegant graphite black shade of Dekton Domoos has been used on the exit ramp of the Pavilion, in combination with Dekton Zenith on the ventilated façade, which features vinyl prints representing the main themes of the Pavilion.

Finally, the flooring of the Main Restaurant on the first floor is made of Dekton Arga, from the Stonika series, which brings the sophistication of Taj Mahal quartzite, with a soft cream background crossed by brown and golden veins.

The versatility of Silestone in the restaurant area

As for Silestone, it displays all its beauty and performance in the main restaurant areas of the Pavilion. The iconic Silestone Blanco Zeus is the star of two spaces located on the first floor, the Main Restaurant, where it has been used for the bars and islands, and the Tapas Bar. Additionally, Silestone Eternal Charcoal Soapstone has been used on the counter of the restaurant area, La Gran Barra, as well as on the bathroom countertop of the Main Restaurant.

A symbol of luxury and sustainability

In a growing Vancouver neighbourhood you can find The Mahogany, a mixed-use skyscraper whose façade showcases its luxurious and sophisticated interiors. ‘I was looking for a smooth, marble-like finish at the main entrance with the panels leading to the lobby’, explains Diane Delves, President and CEO at Quantum Properties, the developer of the impressive skyscraper. The building is located in the vibrant neighbourhood of Abbotsford, British Columbia (Canada), overlooking Mill Lake. The façade of this unique building, designed by Site Lines Architecture, was clad with Dekton Aura 15 panels, which, according to Delves, ‘added the perfect finishing touch to our beautiful mixed-use skyscraper’.

The Mahogany is equipped with luxurious facilities such as an indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi, an outdoor atrium and a gym, among others. It also boasts environmentally friendly systems, like geothermal heating and cooling and energy-efficient glazing. A symbol of luxury and sustainability with the finishing touch of the Dekton Aura 15 marble-look finish. ‘Dekton’s interior and exterior panel options and concealed mounting system made it the perfect solution’, Delves concludes.

Perfection inside and out

The Site Lines Architecture studio was interested in using Dekton for façades because of the endless design possibilities, as well as the durability and strength of the materials. Cosentino built a good relationship with the architects and Quantum Properties and invited them to visit the headquarters and factory in Almería, Spain, where they immediately fell in love with Dekton’s designs and applications. Aura 15 helped to create a combination of envelope panels that connects the exterior and interior of the building. This colour – inspired by Carrara and Calacatta marbles – is reminiscent of the look and feel of natural stone and offers many benefits: it requires little maintenance, is much more durable and is available in large formats. Dekton is a surface resistant to graffiti, UV rays and extreme temperature, which convinced them as the perfect choice for this Vancouver building. Thus, the Aura 15 panels were fitted both in a façade area, for a visual emphasis, and in the main lobby area of the luxury property, creating a sophisticated, exclusive and harmonious space.

Huawei’s shop as a communal space

Located in Shenzen (China), Huawei’s global flagship is a complex with an area of 1,300 m2 where architecture is at the service of interaction and technology. Situated within the MixC World complex, the shop offers multiple areas to explore the brand’s latest innovations, experience its technology and, above all, share. Designed as a meeting point between the company and its customers, it is a perfect example of relational architecture which stands out for its communal, open spaces surrounded by a three-dimensional glass.

To complement this transparent, lightweight looking structure, Stone and Solutions fitters chose Dekton for the flooring because of its optimal performance on high traffic floors. In the words of CEO Richard Ma, “Dekton’s colour is elegant and at the same time futuristic, meeting the design objectives of this flagship”.

High traffic flooring

Dekton’s technical features and sustainable performance made it the perfect material to deal with the high traffic of a building of this kind. Furthermore, its availability in large format slabs makes it possible to minimise the number of joints, thus creating a greater sense of visual homogeneity. The colours chosen for the interior spaces were Dekton Keon and Dekton Danae. “Dekton was also chosen for the outdoor flooring because of its excellent performance and ease of maintenance, which provides peace of mind for final consumers”, says Richard Ma. While Dekton Kean brings brightness and a natural look to the contemporary and futuristic design of this innovative flagship, the beige shades of Dekton Danae add warmth and a cosy vibe. The combination of the two colours visually differentiates one area from another, enhancing a dynamic interior atmosphere where everything comes together.

Transparent and durable

Designed by architecture studio Saguez and Partners, this Huawei flagship is characterised by the use of advanced techniques such as curved 3D glass, which gives the project a wraparound look. “The 11 metre high glass panels provide spectacular views while ensuring resistance to typhoons“, explains the studio. Inside, the walls and ceilings are covered with panels made from recycled plastic bottles.
