Love at first sight

Although the White House residential lobby was fully completed in March 2020, the creative process had been brewing in the mind of its designer, Shiri Levy, for many months. It all started during a visit to Cosentino's headquarters in Almeria. Levy was invited to see the latest product innovations and their countless applications. The designer was so fascinated by DKTN that, as soon as she returned to Israel, she decided to return to Cosentino's factories in Almeria, but this time accompanied by her site manager. On this second visit, they chose the finishes and quantities needed for the execution of the project.

As it could not be otherwise, two different shades of white were used in the White House: DKTN Aura, with strong grey veining and featuring a fold out design; and DKTN Zenith, a solid Nordic white, with no veining or texture. Classicism and modernity go hand in hand to create an elegant and imposing lobby.

In this way, the designer succeeded in responding to the project brief: to create an impressive and timeless space that combines innovation and elegance.

Inspired by Italian Carrara marble

Planning the White House lobby was not without its complications. Levy specifically refers to the difficulty in coordinating the different systems that are mandatory in public spaces, as well as the cutting of the slabs into triangular shapes. This required a series of technical simulations in collaboration with the Cosentino team in Spain to reduce material waste.

Beyond the technical challenges, the designer speaks enthusiastically about her source of inspiration. For Levy, the Italian region of Tuscany and Carrara marble represent the pinnacle of elegance and good taste, both of which are present in this lobby. DKTN allows the design of large-scale public spaces, achieving that complex balance between functionality and beauty.
