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.

Luxury restaurant

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.
