Exterior elegance, interior strength

TOPA Sukaldería is located in the heart of San Sebastián´s Gros district (Northern Spain), and occupies a total space of 496 m2, divided over two floors. The ground floor is occupied by the kitchen and the dining lounge, while the bathrooms are located in the basement. Clarity of space, contrasts, an upbeat, cosy environment, myriad ways of welcoming customers, high-quality decorative and architectural products, and the use of recycled materials are just some of the key concepts that define this project.

The ultra-compact surface Dekton, and the ecological Silestone Eco Line range were chosen for this design. More than 400 m2 of Cosentino products were used in this inspirational culinary project. The spectacular kitchen and dining lounge are located on the ground floor. In this large space, the emphasis is on the visual contrast between the natural, marbled finishes of the Dekton Kelya and Dekton Aura tones, and the wooden planks and metallic textures that permeate the entire room.

Resistance and hygiene for the most exposed surfaces

One of the priorities of this design was to harness the concept of an open kitchen, to allow customers and diners to see the chefs’ creative process first-hand. The Dekton Aura worktops and counters connect the kitchen with the rest of the room in an elegant harmony. Their wonderful pure white clarity, together with their distinctive veins, make them the room’s stand-out feature.

The safety and hygiene offered by Dekton when handling food, its high tolerance for both heat and cold without suffering aesthetic or structural changes, its high resistance to stains and scratching, and the availability of large format cut to size were determining factors in the choice of Dekton surfacing.

Furthermore, Dekton Aura was used as counter for the furniture located throughout the dining room, bringing greater visual harmony to the space as a whole.

Large format to minimize joints

The contrast between the stainless steel, which can be seen in abundance throughout the kitchen, and the deep, dark, matte finish colour of Dekton Kelya, is quite simply magnificent.

In addition to the beauty and outstanding technical benefits of Dekton, the option of installing large format slabs for the kitchen walls, with minimal visible joints, gives the space a greater sense of continuity and aesthetic elegance.

Environmentally friendly materials

For the sake of elegance and functionality, the Starlight colour from the Silestone Eco Line was used for the wall cladding in the bathrooms. This material was chosen in line with the use of recycled wood shavings for the ceilings and other cladding within the premises.

The emphatic black colour of Starlight provides the perfect contrast to the white of the bathroom elements and the grey shades of the flooring. The scintillating gleam of the mirror shards which are incorporated into slabs of Silestone® Eco Line balances the light and the darkness in the room, and creates an unexpectedly bewitching visual effect.

Opera and Domoos, durability for the Britannia dining area

The Britannia Hotel in Trondheim, Norway, first opened its doors in 1870. The Britannia, a landmark and historic site, has undergone numerous refurbishments over the years. The most recent took place in 2019, when it underwent a complete renovation involving the rooms and common areas, such as the Michelin-starred Speilsalen restaurant.

Seeking a balance between design and durability, the refurbishment team used Dekton in colours Opera and Domoos for those surfaces in constant use by chefs and customers, such as the restaurant countertop and bar, as well as tables and furniture in the buffet area.

Hotel Britannia  - Britannia Dekton 8 113

Dekton makes the maintenance of the most used surfaces easy

Dekton Opera reflects the beauty and elegance of Italian Carrara marble; with its characteristic veining in grey tones, Opera adds distinction to the restaurant while offering great resistance to scratches, knocks and temperature contrasts typical in kitchens.

As for Dekton Domoos, it has been used to cover the buffet tables, a choice intended to give sobriety to the furniture, while combining with the light-coloured wood used for table frames.

Dekton is a non-porous surface, which allows for easy maintenance and cleaning, as abrasive substances do not affect its colour. It is ideal for adding a touch of style and colour to highly used surfaces.

Respect for the sense of space

The historical centre of Cuenca, located in the heart of Spain, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The passage of time and the city’s surroundings have shaped an urban architecture the greatest example of which is the well-known Casas Colgadas (Hanging Houses), a group of three Gothic-style residential buildings on a cliff overlooking the Huécar river.

The Casas Colgadas, which date back to the 16th century, have been restored on many occasions to maintain their essence to the present day. The latest restoration has been carried out by the Redondo Soria Arquitectos studio, which has performed a complete refurbishment of the outdoor and indoor spaces, areas that also house the Spanish Abstract Art Museum and the Casas Colgadas restaurant.

Respect for the historical heritage, the restoration and optimisation of the spaces, and their appropriate accessibility have been the main aims of this challenging refurbishment project in which Cosentino Natural Stone has been used for different surfaces of the restaurant, such as the flooring, cladding and furniture.

``Cosentino responded to our requests and requirements from the very beginning, giving us various technical and material options for what we needed``
Redondo Soria Arquitectos

Redondo Soria Arquitectos

Unique atmospheres

As an extension of the historical group of buildings with a marked Gothic character, both the museum and the restaurant adopt different urban features and bring them inside the building – the staircases. These single flight staircases in Negro Zimbawe granite with a vintage finish flow from the mezzanine level of the dining room to welcome the user and take them to the upper floor, as if they were a continuation of the floor, to one of the dining rooms, known as the Sala Negra.

A wine cellar has been created in the space previously intended for toilets, and Ónix Miel in Polished finish has been chosen for a high table. The result is a stunning piece of design that stands out in an intimate space for wine tasting.

A refurbishment designed to last

One of the major project refurbishments has taken place on the second floor, where there used to be a house with a space under cover for storage, in disuse and in very poor condition. The framing has been demolished to make the space look bigger, creating a geometry similar to the main hall of the Spanish Abstract Art Museum and trying to recreate the textures, light and colour of the so-called Sala Blanca, where the Blanco Thassos colour has been used for flooring, also in Natural Stone and in Polished finish.

Another of the dining rooms, the Sala Pétrea, has a powerful and abstract design, with granite and geometric materials as the main features. The use of Pacific Grey for flooring, as well as wall cladding and the central table, has achieved an impressive room that brings the gothic style of the streets into the restaurant.

All in all, the refurbishment of the Casas Colgadas together with the museum and the restaurant has achieved harmony between the historical and heritage outside and the artistic and culinary experience offered inside this iconic architectural landmark.

Character and exoticism

Quipu restaurant offers the raw, unfiltered beauty of nature as a visual, aesthetic and gastronomic experience. And it does so by evoking the most authentic Peru: furniture made from natural elements and earth colours that recreate a traditional Peruvian home and invite you to taste the best of creative Andean cuisine.

The interior design of the establishment has been the work of Javiescobar Interiorismo, an interior design studio that has taken advantage of natural elements such as wood, natural stone and rattan to create a unique atmosphere. Dekton has also contributed to this atmosphere with its Liquid Embers colour, which has been used for the bar top.

“We chose Liquid Embers for its dark colour with blue tones and, at the same time, because it embodies elegance and freshness. The charcoal colour of the material reminds me a lot of fire and coal, and in this project we wanted to focus on nature and natural elements”, explains the studio.

“Dekton is a really user-friendly material for cooking”
Javiescobar Interiorismo

Dekton, comfort for every situation

Having met the design criteria, the studio sought durable and robust materials that wouldn’t get damaged by daily use and challenges of a restaurant. “No other material provides the hardness and rigidity that Dekton offers. It provides amazing versatility for such a demanding live cooking bar top: you can use it to place a hot wok or as a chopping board … it’s a really user-friendly material for cooking, especially in a Peruvian kitchen that requires a lot of fire and heat for cooking. ”

The ultra-compact Dekton surface is especially recommended for applications involving temperature contrasts as well as for use as a work surface suitable for all types of businesses, as its physical-mechanical properties make it highly resistant to scratching, easy to clean as it is a non-porous material, and it is even fire-resistant.

A comprehensive refurbishment designed to last

This architectural project involved the remodelling and extension of an existing building in order to house the headquarters of our client, Grupo Delgado. EAU Arquitectura studio designed a comprehensive refurbishment of the building, which extends from the basement, intended to provide parking spaces, to the top floor, for both staff and executive offices.

The aim of the refurbishment was to create open and light spaces oriented towards functionality but also with a marked aesthetic character. Cosentino materials, Dekton and Silestone, were key to achieving this combination both indoors, highlighting the furniture and flooring, and outdoors, featuring a ventilated façade designed to withstand the temperature changes and exposure to sunlight typical of central Spain.

“Thanks to their size, lightweight and durability, Cosentino materials have allowed us to go one step further”.
EAU ARQUITECTURA SLP

Dekton, lightweight and resistant surfaces

During the refurbishment of the building, the original façade was completely demolished in order to plan a new one that would meet two needs: design and durability. “We wanted a contemporary, refined and simple design, without embellishments, that would provide sobriety to the building”, explains the architecture studio, which is why Dekton in colours Warm White and Domoos was chosen for this project.

For the construction of the ventilated façade, the studio used large format Dekton panels, which allow such cladding thanks to its lightness compared to other materials – Dekton is available in thicknesses up to 4 mm-. “We managed to reduce the weight of the façade compared to other materials such as precast concrete or stone, which would have required the use of a more complex substructure as well as waterproofing the material from time to time in order to prevent discolouration, dirt, water absorption…”

Dekton’s physicochemical properties, such as its resistance to UV rays, its low porosity and resistance to frost and thawing, make it possible to obtain a material that remains practically unaltered outdoors without the need for long-term maintenance.

Scratch-proof design furniture

The star of the ground floor is the lobby, designed to allow natural light to flood the space and facilitate the flow of both staff and visitors. Large format Dekton slabs in Warm White, Domoos and Blanc Concrete were used for the flooring, thus reducing the number of joints, enhancing visual continuity and facilitating maintenance. “For us it was very attractive because of its scratch resistance and anti-slip properties”.

The bespoke reception in Dekton Entzo is the focal point of the lobby. Its interesting veining provides elegance and is reminiscent of the Calacatta marbles, but with a beautiful golden shade.

A whole collection of furniture, including tables and counters in Aura 15 and Domoos, was also designed. The use of Cosentino materials is extended to the washbasins, featuring the model Silence in Silestone Iconic White.

A multi-sensory experience

“Beyond the concepts, philosophies or types of kitchen, Appetite is a place to celebrate people, with their own differences and similarities.” Thus, the renowned chef Ivan Brehm presents his most personal project, the multi-concept space Appetite, which aims to go beyond the concept of a restaurant to bring together musicians, artists, designers and even scientists. It is a unique place where gastronomy is only the starting point.

Designed by the Japanese interior designer Akira Kita, from AKA Architecture and Interior Design, Appetite offers a bright and peaceful atmosphere, with a calm simplicity that reminds us of the monasteries characteristic of Southeast Asia. Every material, texture and colour makes the difference to achieve harmony. Due to its textures and technical features, the ultra-compact Dekton surface is a centrepiece of the design created by Kita and manages to enhance a multi-sensory experience.

The beauty of Dekton Bergen to withstand a large number of diners

The Appetite design is based on a 13m2 U-shaped bar made with Dekton Bergen, from the Stonika collection. Inspired by Portobello marble, Dekton Bergen features a warm white foundation, delicately interwoven with an extremely elegant grey veining.

It is in this unusual open kitchen where chefs and diners share space; a place of frenzied activity, thermal contrasts and handling of many plates and glasses that would test the resistance of any material. This is one of the reasons why Dekton was chosen, a material that offers high resistance for surfaces prepared to ‘withstand’ the traffic of a popular gastronomic space.

Dekton Slim, the ideal thickness for cladding

Simple in appearance, Appetite avoids decorative features to make furniture, works of art and dishes stand out. This way, the idea of the interior designer Akira Kita is completed with doors and cooker hood cladding made with Dekton Slim, the ultra-light version of Dekton that is only 4mm thick.

Light, functional and full of possibilities, Dekton Slim is Cosentino’s offer to bring Dekton’s unique design and properties to walls and furniture.

The perfect symbiosis between kitchens

The Ti Trin Ned restaurant has become a reference in Danish gastronomy since 2001. Located in the old quarter of Fredericia, on the shores of the Baltic Sea, this restaurant takes its culinary offerings to an almost intimate level where diners and chefs share spaces. The experience had to flow, according to the concept of manager Mette Hvarre Gassner and chef Rainer Gassner, who have created a perfect symbiosis between a restaurant turned into an open kitchen and a ‘production’ kitchen. The result – one Michelin star.

To do this, it was necessary to merge two spaces with different characteristics and needs: on the one hand, priority was given to the aesthetic beauty of the surfaces, which had to complement the flavours of the menu; and on the other hand, it was essential to have a material that could be resistant to the thermal shocks, scratches and stains inherent in a busy kitchen. Dekton uniquely combines functionality and design, two features that make it truly attractive for professional kitchens all over the world.

“The resistance of Dekton represents exactly the attributes we are looking for, without compromising on aesthetics and design”
Rainer Gassner

Rainer Gassner

Owner & Chef

Domoos and Kreta for two working environments

During the development of the project it was important that the two spaces, i.e. the open kitchen and the ‘production’ kitchen, were interconnected yet physically separate. The solution was to use a combination of two textures: the dark, almost black texture of Dekton Domoos for the worktops and the wall cladding in the open kitchen, and the soft grey of Dekton Kreta, from the award-winning Industrial Collection by Cosentino, used in the ‘production’ kitchen.

It is in the latter where Dekton’s unique properties stand out. Its large format of 2700X1400 mm, which runs from floor to ceiling, provides a sense of continuity that also makes cleaning easier by reducing joints. Ti Trin Ned’s kitchen is one of the easiest to maintain in Denmark.

Eco-friendly aesthetics

Ti Trin Ned offers a type of cuisine that is deeply rooted in its natural environment, with ingredients firmly established in tradition and respect for nature. For Mette and Rainer Gassner to find a material that is as beautiful as it is sustainable was a matter of pure coherence. Dekton, as a carbon neutral product, meets this requirement perfectly.

“We are impressed by the features of Dekton and, at the same time, the concern for the environment and recycling that motivates Cosentino’s R&D. This is in line with our philosophy of respecting natural resources”.

An aesthetic and functional solution

FINEHARD is a leading processor of innovative surface materials made of quartz, ceramic, and high-tech materials for room architecture in the kitchen, bathroom, and living area. The company is part of Fraefel AG, one of the largest manufacturers of bathroom furniture in Switzerland. With innovative production methods, the company also works on kitchen construction with architects, interior designers, and carpentry workshops like BISAG which focus on creating individual solutions.

For the new kitchen for a customer in Wängi in the canton of Thurgau, centrally located between Zurich, St. Gallen, and Lake Constance, BISAG SCHREINEREI was looking for something very special. A combination of European walnut wood with a pronounced grain and uniformly dark surfaces was planned. FINEHARD recommended Dekton by Cosentino for the homogeneity and design options. In order to draw on the colour of the existing natural stone floor, the graphite black Dekton Domooos was selected for the 12 mm thin horizontal shelves.

“The central cooking island should stand out visually. For this purpose, we used Dekton Keranium, which creates an abstract connection to the colour of the wood with its strong technical dark brown,” explains Durak Fazliji, Production Manager at FINEHARD. “The door elements should be designed with the same surface, but without being bulky or complicated. We had to test how thin we can produce the fronts without jeopardizing stability – and how we can secure the fittings in the long term.”

Dekton Keranium from the Cosentino Tech collection is available in 20, 12 and 8 mm thickness – too much to apply the ultra-compact surface to a carrier plate if you want to create the slimmest possible profile. “We were therefore looking for a solution to connect the hinges directly with Dekton,” says Fazliji. “We did not want to just use adhesive. However, in order to set screws, we needed a fastening system that had the shortest possible anchors, and we had to find a way to set precise and resilient bores without the material experiencing too much stress and tearing.”

Fraefel Kitchen  - Frafel 4 398

Freedom to create any kitchen solution

Dekton is extremely stable, resistant to bending, and sturdy. The ultra-compact surface is manufactured in a particle sintering process developed by Cosentino. Up to 20 exclusively natural minerals are compressed under high pressure of approx. 25,000 tonnes and heated up to 1,200°C so that the particles combine to form an extremely durable surface with the highest homogeneity. The material is water-resistant and stain-resistant, fire and heat-resistant, and available in more than 50 designs, also in large formats.

However, the hardness of the material is a challenge during processing. “We tested various drilling tools and their parameters on our machines for weeks,” Fazliji remembers. Finally they got the hang of it. “By including our fitting supplier, we found the right product which we were able to anchor perfectly through high-precision boreholes. We were then able to attach the door hinges, door fittings, and telescoping runners securely and without tension by using pull anchors and screws.”

A 22 metre engineering and design challenge

Unique, breathtaking projects, such as this stunning 22 metre urban waterfall made entirely of Dekton, arise when design and technique are embraced. The project is the result of the collaboration between Cosentino and the Australian design team Waterforms International, a company specialising in architecture and engineering of all types of water related facilities.

Inspired by the lush tropical landscapes of Indonesia, the waterfall is located on the main façade of a luxury residential building and serves as a starting point for exploring an urban garden with over 5,000 tropical plants. “Just because it hasn’t been done before doesn’t mean it can’t be. That is our philosophy”, says Kate Deakin-Bell, Marketing Coordinator for Cosentino Oceania.

From granite to Dekton

The project was initially going to be made from granite. However, when the designers brought the sketch to reality, technical difficulties surfaced, such as the weight of the material and its high maintenance cost. In addition to these difficulties, the poor aesthetic result of the joints created between the granite pieces led the Waterforms International team to realise that a different material was needed.

“One of the most attractive aspects of Dekton is the size of the slabs. The large format means fewer joints and a more refined aesthetic result”, explains Dirk Slotboom, Managing Director of Waterforms International. “Dekton is lightweight, maintenance-free and water-proof, making it ideal for this project. Furthermore, it has the exact texture we wanted here”.

“Dekton is a superior product. We will use it again in future projects”.

Limitless designs

Dekton is the chosen material for designers and architects working on projects with different technical difficulties: from urban environments where maintenance is key, to high-traffic buildings where the material must be both resistant and versatile.

“This is not only a beautiful waterfall, it also plays an important role in the sustainable revolution taking place in urban planning in Australia”, explains Kate Deakin-Bell. Classified as a Carbon Neutral product, Dekton is not only manufactured in a sustainable way: its technical features make it perfect for projects that seek energy efficiency but not at the expense of beauty.

A colour palette to recreate any environment

“The important thing is not what you eat, but how you eat it”. The quote from the Greek philosopher Epictetus presides over the main dining room of the Joseba Añorga tavern-restaurant, a dining space that offers its customers an experience that goes beyond the culinary. The decoration of the establishment, featuring Dekton’s colours Liquid Sky and Khalo, recreates different natural environments of the province of Almeria, in southern Spain.

“I wanted to recreate atmospheres and landscapes of the surroundings with very bright colours that would bring light to the restaurant”, explains Lucas Paris, the interior designer responsible for this interior design project. Paris used Dekton Khalo with Xgloss finish for the bartop, and Dekton Liquid Sky for the cladding of the main wall of the dining room.

A material designed to ‘endure’

This is not the first time that Lucas Paris has worked with Cosentino’s materials. In fact, the designer has already carried out other projects using Dekton as his benchmark material. “I always recommend Dekton for its durability and resistance. I have it well tested. I am also very interested in the fact that it is a very clean and easy to maintain material, which is very much appreciated in the hospitality industry”.

Dekton’s versatility has led the restaurant owner to use small pieces of the material as plates or placemats. “We found it very interesting that the diner could eat directly on the material itself. It is part of the experience”.

“Khalo reminded me of the natural stones of the region, while Liquid Sky has a very vivid veining and a shade that takes me to the beaches of Almeria. Furthermore, it has a very attractive texture, perfect to achieve that vivid effect.”

A complete renovation

The Joseba Añorga tavern-restaurant is located in an early 20th century building that has undergone a careful process of restoration and renovation. Both the exterior façade and the interior spaces have been preserved while providing modern elements and designs.

Dekton’s ease of installation and handling in architectural solutions, such as the main wall cladding, has been one of the key elements that has facilitated the rehabilitation work.

Finally, the fabricator company responsible for the project, Encideluxe, highlights the challenge to achieve an outstanding result: “in this project we took care of every detail, we managed to join the veins following the specifications of the interior design. We are proud to see in our projects collaboration, functionality and elegance.”
