Architect Jean-Philippe Nuel renovates the Hélianthal Thalazur hotel

Located in the seaside town of Saint-Jean-De-Luz, in the heart of the French Basque Country, the Hélianthal Thalazur hotel occupies a historic building recently renovated and reopened on 29 July 2021. Architect Jean-Philippe Nuel was responsible for the renovation of this 30-year-old luxury hotel, which has retained the 1920s architecture and design by Mallet-Stevens while updating the whole.

The areas to be renovated were the spa’s cabins and the restaurant tables. The renovation sought to strike the perfect balance between the historic architecture of this area in the south of France and the ocean inspired materials. In addition to this, the architect chose Cosentino materials for both areas, which not only blend in with the beauty of the surroundings, but also add extra strength and quality.

Technical quality

Jean-Philippe Nuel’s aim was to encourage the use of materials that meet design requirements, but also and above all technical and quality requirements. These requirements included providing as natural a finish as possible, as well as easy maintenance to suit the uses of such premises, while at the same time ensuring greater resistance and a design that blends seamlessly into the space. For this purpose, Silestone was used in the spa’s cabins: Lagoon was chosen for the basins, while Tebas was the colour chosen for the furniture worktops.

Silestone was also the material of choice for the restaurant tables. The neat shade of Silestone Eternal Statuario breathes new life into this common area of the restaurant while ensuring that it maintains the same appearance as the day it was installed.

The new look of the Meliá Hotel in Milan

After the complete redesign of several areas, including the lobby, restaurant, meeting rooms and bathrooms, one of the landmark hotels in the Italian city of Milan is sporting a fresh new look. The renovation, carried out jointly by Spanish architect Álvaro Sans and Vittorio Grassi Architects, has given a new look to the Meliá Milano, a hotel located in Via Masaccio, very close to the trendy area known as City Life, the new centre of luxury shopping in the city.

The functional and architectural approach of the renovation project led to the rebirth of this 20-year-old hotel, opening up spaces by creating a new, spacious and flexible layout of the common areas. The interior gardens, high skylights and contemporary use of materials and textures give the bar, restaurant and co-working area a sophisticated feel.

A chic colour

Style and functionality are the main elements of this project in which natural materials such as marble, wood and green shades have been combined with Cosentino surfaces. Specifically, Silestone Eternal Marquina was used for the cladding and countertops of the bathrooms, the alcoves and furniture in the meeting rooms, and the worktops and several tables in the buffet and bar area. “The Suede finish creates a unique feeling of comfort”, says Vittorio Grassi. “Furthermore, its appearance, imitating the veins and nuances of precious exotic marbles, fits well with the Spanish marbles in the common areas and the style of Vescom’s fire retardant curtain fabrics”, he further says.

“Silestone wall claddings, in this case in a glossy finish, allowed us to achieve the style we were looking for but with an ease of maintenance that meets the hygiene standards you would expect in a five star hotel”.

Hygiene standards and easy maintenance

In addition to the Suede finish, polishing has been applied in the bathroom area. “Functionality is a key element of hotel management and, in the case of business accommodation, bathroom areas can get very crowded”, explains the architect. “The Silestone wall claddings in a glossy finish allowed us to achieve the style we were looking for but with an ease of maintenance that meets the hygiene standards you would expect in a five star hotel”, he adds. As a result, the combination of luxury, beauty and technical properties for high traffic areas is perfect.

Spaces that show off

The Madre Vieja country house is a stunning place located in Guadalajara (Spain) that has everything you can imagine to enjoy a few days of rest and connect with nature. Without a doubt, this house is unique, both inside and out.

The owners of the Madre Vieja estate chose Diego Rodríguez and his team at Concepto DR to carry out this great challenge: to create an architectural and interior design project that would impress any guest and would be welcoming, warm and stylish. A carefully selected decor which suits any atmosphere and type of home in which it is used, and results in various spaces beautifully designed and full of character.

The owners’ aim was to convert it into a second home for weekends and holidays, and to enjoy one of their great hobbies, hunting. To this end, they have set aside part of the property for this purpose and equipped it to accommodate friends and family who are also fond of hunting.

The exterior of the property is elegant and stately, yet retains the essence of an old, traditional country house. The first thing you come across is the Campaspero entrance floor by Scalea, Cosentino’s natural stone collection. This entrance meets all expectations in terms of architecture, design and decoration while impressing guests.

Rural interior design with innovative surfaces

The common dining room, for gathering before and after a day in the countryside, has a great ally in terms of resistance and aesthetics: Dekton, in its colours Vera and Edora, is used for the table tops, and forms part of all the characteristic features that make up this room. The high ceilings with wooden beams and modern-style lamps, together with the walls decorated in keeping with the surroundings and context, make for a very special and unique interior style.

The living room is very spacious and consists of several rooms separated from each other by the furniture. And this area is dominated by a large dining table around which large windows let in light.

Both spaces have been designed with an avant-garde and sophisticated style, adding more rustic touches, such as wooden floors, ceilings and doors, which provide a fantastic sense of warmth.

On the other hand, the living room is a little smaller and cosier. Here, more natural-looking elements have been used, including organic fabrics for the sofa, cushions and rug, as well as wood, which can be found in different applications, from floors and stairs to various tables, each with a distinct style. This room leads, via a spiral staircase, to a small classic style library that surrounds it at the top, leaving the central area of both spaces free.

Protected natural stone for selected spaces

The bathrooms stand out for the visual continuity in the application of their materials, which creates spaces of great beauty, turning such an intimate and necessarily comfortable room of the home into the centre of attention it deserves.

Both bathrooms are clad with Sensa Natural Stone, one with Taj Mahal quartzite and the other with Black Beauty granite. Designs with contrasting tones, but with a beauty and resistance to all types of stains.

Quality and versatility: the key to materials

When designer Mauricio Gutiérrez of Design Influence undertook this home renovation project in Illinois (USA), it was clear to him that he needed quality materials that were aesthetically powerful and durable. Gutiérrez had collaborated with Cosentino in the past and was familiar with the wide range of materials and applications, and knew that they not only allowed him to bring his creative vision to life, but also to offer solutions for every room in the house.

For more than a year, the Cosentino team worked hand in hand with the designer and fitter to bring this impressive project to life. A house that never ceases to amaze in which materials have been used in a very innovative way. The result is a true testament to the versatility and ability of Cosentino materials to translate the ideas of the plan into reality.

An elegant and functional kitchen

The elegance of the world’s finest white marble can be found in the kitchen thanks to Dekton Rem. In this space, the floors, worktops, splashbacks and dining table show the beauty of this colour with brown and grey veins and hints of gold on an off-white background. Its tones blend perfectly with the dark units and black fittings and interact with the contemporary-style golden chandelier suspended above the worktop. In addition to its stylish appearance, Dekton provides technical properties that make this kitchen both functional and durable. Due to its high resistance to heat, scratches and stains, it is the perfect solution for these work and dining areas.

Well-being and relaxation in the bathroom

Finally, in the bathroom, the designer wanted to give a harmonious look by using the same material in several applications. He decided on Sensa Gabana in Leather finish, a unique granite that is used for the bathroom countertop, the inner and outer walls of the shower, the washbasin and a bench. This natural grey stone with fine white veining creates a relaxing atmosphere and transforms the bathroom into a real spa.

An award-winning refurbishment of a legendary hotel in Gran Canaria

The ‘Premio Nacional Macael’ (Spanish Macael National Prize) has been awarded this year by the Fundación Marca Macael (Marca Macael Foundation) to the recently refurbished Lopesan Costa Meloneras Hotel, in recognition of the architectural and aesthetic value of the comprehensive refurbishment carried out in this iconic four-star Resort & Spa located in Las Palmas. In this refurbishment project, undertaken by Juan Francisco García and the Lopesan Hotel Group’s own design department, more than 7,000 square metres of marble, granite and ultra-compact Dekton surface have been fitted.

The project stands out for its large scale and its integration into the landscape and the context in which it is located, one of the most exclusive tourist areas on the island of Gran Canaria. Surrounded by the Maspalomas Dunes Nature Reserve and next to its emblematic Boulevard, the Lopesan Costa Meloneras Hotel is updated paying homage to its own history. Opened 20 years ago, with 1,136 rooms, 2,700 beds and more than 70,000 m2 of outdoor areas, it has become one of the largest hotels in Spain.

Multiple colours, textures and applications

The refurbishment has added a contemporary and innovative style to many areas of the hotel, from the gardens, swimming pools, restaurants and exteriors to the rooms and common areas. Crema Marfil marble, Negro Marquina and Negro Eclipse have been used to clad the columns, the floors of the reception area and the bathrooms in the rooms, bringing great elegance and sophistication to these areas. Meanwhile, Negro Zimbawe and Negro Tezal granites have been chosen for the floors and steps. And Dekton Zenith, Domoos, Opera, Kelya, Sirius and Orix have been used for worktops, bathroom and bathtub cladding, buffets, table tops, countertops in bathroom and common areas, and stools in the pool area.

The benefits of stone combined with Dekton surface

The strength and hardness of the natural stone used in this project blends with the various applications of Cosentino’s Dekton surface, providing a number of other technical advantages. In particular, Dekton has been used for applications such as worktops or even outdoor stools, taking advantage of its high resistance to stains, scratches and temperature changes. This, together with its easy maintenance and cleaning, makes it the perfect material for the most used areas in a hotel, guaranteeing an ‘as new’ appearance over time.

Second life

The main challenge of this house is to dialogue with its own site, an iconic building of national architecture designed by the Catalan architect José Antonio Coderch in the mid-1960s. The Girasol building, on the corner of Madrid’s exclusive Ortega Gasset and Lagasca streets, is characterised by a masterful use of natural light. Each house rotates on its axis towards noon and this rotation is calculated according to the most favourable positions of the sun throughout the day and the different seasons of the year.

‘The owners – a young couple who live with their friendly beagle dog named Milka – wanted to respect its essence as much as possible, maintaining the brightness of the spaces, but with a larger and more continuous layout. They asked for the best quality and specially designed materials to be used, such as those by Cosentino. They were looking for modern and functional finishes, but at the same time they wanted to create a cosy space,’ explains Domus Arquitectura studio, in charge of giving this flat a second life.

‘The initial layout, typical of the period when it was build, was irregular, made up of suspended ceilings that reduced the usable heights and fragmented spaces that lost part of their potential. In addition, despite being a penthouse with two large terraces, there was no connection between inside and outside,’ the studio continues. The new layout solves these problems by focusing on attention to detail, elegance and uniqueness. A good example of this is the flooring, for which large-format reformulated Dekton Rem with fewer veins was used, thus achieving a unique finish that enhances the sense of continuity.

Coderch’s work as a source of inspiration

According to the architects, ‘The building itself has been a great source of inspiration for us. The light, the surrounding façade, the colours and materials, the exterior wooden latticework that surrounds and protects it, etc. We wanted all this to be reflected in the house in some way, bringing the essence of the original project to the present.’ This is the case of the entrance, where a wooden framework that emulates the construction detail of the exterior separates the hall from a work area and directs us towards the kitchen. In this area, the same tones blend seamlessly with the grey and gold veining of Dekton Rem to form a large island. The hardness of the material makes it possible to cut directly on it without the knife scratching it or to place a hot pan on it without the risk of burning it.

Next to the island, in the same open-plan space, is the dining and living area which in turn connects to one of the terraces. Neutral colours such as grey, blue and white stand out here, with hints of dark tones, such as the aforementioned wood or a Dekton Eter fireplace unit that gives a distinctive look to the whole space. ‘We have worked with both Silestone and Dekton in different models, using them for applications in which everyone is more or less used to seeing and using them, such as flooring, bathrooms and worktops. But also, using them for unique custom-made features that match them, such as the fireplace itself, the flower beds…’ They are materials with almost endless possibilities.’

Small works of art

Perhaps one of the most impressive uses of Dekton in this home is the headboard in the guest bedroom, where the Liquid Shell colour becomes a kind of bas-relief with a warm, silky feel that is made even more striking with careful LED lighting.

Something similar occurs with the two Silestone Eternal Noir columns that frame the master bedroom and connect the range of light colours that characterise the public area and the dark tones that dominate the bathrooms, which are made entirely in this Silestone colour or in Dekton Eter and Silestone Charcoal Soapstone.

Finally, in another of the four bedrooms, an island washbasin in Silestone Blanco Zeus becomes a harmonious totem-like sculptural set.

Dekton, also for outdoors

The distinctive curved red brick façade designed by Coderch now contrasts with an impressive Dekton Rem wall which, thanks to its high resistance to temperature changes and the effects of UV rays, will remain unchanged for years to come. The same applies to the table tops on the terrace, which are clad in Dekton Sirius, a textured colour with green hints. Long live this architectural gem.

A celebrity oasis with high-end design

This house was literally designed for film and television stars to stay in while filming for a content production company that broadcasts in the New Mexico area. An ambitious challenge that Steven Storms, project manager and lead design consultant at Apex Homes, undertook with a complete refurbishment after finding the perfect house for this purpose. With a privileged location, stunning city and mountain views and plenty of privacy, the home was ideal for the project.

Storms managed to create a real oasis for celebrities, a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. And to all this he added luxury, sophistication and elegance in every detail. The design was based on the highest quality products and materials. Among them, Dekton and Silestone were two of the key features to add the perfect finishing touch. Both were chosen for their contemporary design and high consistency and can be found in the home in various applications.

Balance of contrasts

Dekton Helena was used for the kitchen worktops, the island and the pantry. With its translucent appearance and onyx-inspired white and grey tones, it brings light and elegance to this part of the house. Helena is the perfect complement to Dekton Radium, a dark brown with hints of green and blue that is used for another kitchen island, the walls and the floating bars in the living room. Both colours create an atmosphere of perfect harmony. While Helena brings elegance and modernity, Radium provides warmth and visual power. Furthermore, Silestone Eternal Noir was used for two vanity units in the bathrooms. With its deep black base with white veins, it brings beauty and durability to these spaces.

Luxury suites in a historic castle by the sea

The contemporary design of the suites at Hotel Gränsö Slott blends in with the historic surroundings and coastal landscape of this resort near the idyllic town of Västervik, Sweden. The setting could not be more privileged: a castle dating back to 1800 and a private beach. There, four new beach villas with sea views have been built. These 45 m2 holiday homes feature spacious bathrooms, a bedroom, living room and large terraces. The four villas of the hotel, Lillön, Skanvik, Ekholmen and Tärnskär, have been designed in partnership with Amelie von Essen, from the AHA Anders Holmberg Arkitekter studio.

“When creating the new interior design concept for the Gränsö beach villas, the most important thing was to create a warm and welcoming space with a Scandinavian touch that integrated the surrounding nature”, explains Amelie von Essen. Dekton was chosen as the main material for the bathrooms, with this being used on the walls, floors and countertops. In addition, independent and well differentiated spaces were created, with a separate bathtub, shower and toilet.

Colours and contrasts

Specifically, the architects chose three colours from Dekton by Cosentino. The first, Dekton Arga, conveys the brightness and tranquility of the precious Taj Mahal quartzite and has been used on the countertops, fronts and large format wall panels of these luxury bathrooms, giving them, thanks to its natural and smooth appearance, a Scandinavian touch. “The colour scheme of Dekton Arga, together with its clear high-gloss design in shades of sand, light grey and white, is reminiscent of shimmering, sun-warmed beaches and is therefore in line with the concept of ‘strandsviterna’ (beach suites)”, explains the architect. The second Dekton colour used was Laos, a unique matt bluish grey that gives the walls and shelves great depth. Finally, Dekton Kreta was chosen for the floor, offering an interesting contrast of textures.”

Uniform and rounded design

“The main features of these spacious bathrooms are the lack of joints and the large format wall cladding. Dekton was the perfect choice for the cladding of all bathroom surfaces, as its beautiful designs, together with its availability in large format slabs and thin thicknesses of 4 and 8 mm, provided us with the ideal solution to convey an appearance of luxury and exclusivity”, says von Essen.

“We used a number of material options and chose to combine a high gloss finish with a matt finish to highlight the designs and create contrasts”.

Advantages for the bathroom

In addition to the aforementioned sense of uniformity, the chosen materials offer a wide range of technical advantages that make them the perfect choice for bathrooms. In the words of Oskar Pettersson, from Cosentino Scandinavia (Dekton manager in this project), “the material has the ideal properties for this type of room, with an almost zero absorption rate and a high resistance to scratches, ensuring that the surface remains unaltered after daily use”. Meanwhile, von Essen points out other aspects of Dekton that were crucial to their choice: “its stain resistance and easy cleaning and maintenance, as the suites receive guests every day”. “We knew it would be easy for the staff to clean the bathrooms and keep them fresh”, concludes von Essen.

The new youth of a historic building

The former Lubro bread factory has a rich history in Utrecht. For years bread, bisquits and cookies were baked in the large bakery in the middle of the city. When the factory closed its doors in 2004, the flour silo was demolished and the former bakery and its offices remained silent for years. But after more than 10 years of vacancy, the former Lubro premises have been brought back to life: six iconic townhouses have been built in the former bakery and the office building has been converted into apartments and catering outlets.

Commissioned by Hurks Bouw, interior design and realization agency The Home Factory contributed ideas about the layout and living style. They made sure that living in a spacious factory hall became a reality.

Dekton Radium and Trilium in industrial heritage

In the industrial building old elements like window frames, pillars, brick and steel have been preserved and used as accent and framework for a beautiful modern living space. Furthermore, each home has its own unique look and layout, with The Home Factory elaborating the home according to the client’s wishes and situation.

For example, in one of the townhouses, the kitchen has been placed in the middle of the building, where the kitchen functions as a piece of furniture and an extension of the living room. For the kitchen worktop Dekton Radium was chosen. This color has a weathered appearance in different shades of brown and fits perfectly with the building and its history. The risers of the staircase adjacent to the kitchen are also made of the same Dekton material. The same color has been used in the cladding of the fireplace with matching worktop. In this way the two rooms communicate beautifully with each other.

For the bathroom, another industrial color of Dekton was chosen: Trilium. Here the material was used in the floor and back wall of the shower. By working with large tiles, an extra spatial result was created.

Durable Industrial

Radium and Trilium are colors inspired by the beauty of weathered, rusted metals with irregular, organic patterns. With the choice of Dekton Radium and Trilium, sustainability was chosen in addition to an industrial look. Not only are all Dekton colors carbon neutral produced, but these specific colors consist of 80% recycled materials which makes them extra sustainable.

A very personal project

RTE radio presenter Jenny Greene and her wife Kelly Keogh moved into their dream home on 12th March 2020, the day before Ireland went into lockdown. After purchasing their new home, they were both in agreement that their number one room was to be their bathroom and working with designer Michelle Dunne from Realm Concepts, the decision was made early on to convert the main guest room into a luxury bathroom.

Michelle Dunne speaks about the design plan, “Initially, when the house was bought it had four bedrooms with one very small bathroom on the return, so when we were looking at the layout, it made sense to knock the wall between the two front bedrooms to create a much larger main bedroom and change the second bedroom next to this room into a spacious bathroom”.

“The clients had a very specific wishlist. They wanted two sinks, a large walk-in shower, a stand-alone bath, and plenty of storage. Storage was going to be key as they were sacrificing one of the bedrooms. In terms of the style brief, the clients wanted to go for an ‘Industrial look’ and that they didn’t want it to be too feminine. When starting any new project, I like to get a sense of the client’s own personal style, how they dress etc.”

All of nature’s originality, at home

The Sensa by Cosentino colours are unique and exclusive, they are in tune with the nature that has created them. There are 16 different shades available, each one of them in different textures: suede, polished or caresse. Sensa colours are presented with a beauty born from nature and selected by Cosentino, to turn these surfaces into a unique and unparalleled design. Sensa by Cosentino is the natural stone collection of Cosentino Group that counts on a stain resistant protection that makes them unique, elegant and high-quality surfaces with reliable properties.

Michelle mentions, “As the walls and the shower were going to be so dark, the floor needed to be bright and clean. Silestone Desert Silver was the perfect choice to complement Sensa Black Beauty.”

Silestone, an easy to maintain designer surface

Michelle explains that, “For the walls, the clients weren’t afraid of bold colours; and in my mind I had already been thinking of a dark green, but it just so happened when we visited Cosentino’s showroom, the client was wearing a lovely khaki jacket which certainly helped to visualize the palette and inform our selection of the stones.”

On choosing Sensa Black Beauty, Michelle outlines, “When I saw the Sensa black beauty and enquired about the size of the slab I did a rough calculation in my head and realized it was the perfect size to get both the shower walls and the vanity unit in one slab. This was ideal as we didn’t want to waste any material”.

On deciding to choose a suede finish for the Silestone floor, Michelle outlines that “I think that suede and matte finishes are timeless so it was important for design longevity to select stone that will transcend the years. A monochrome base and palette can achieve this. It means that the clients can freely update the look of their bathroom over the years just by changing the paint colour on the walls.

Finally, client Jenny Greene added, “The team at Cosentino were so helpful to us. We are so happy with each and every piece from Cosentino”.
