With regard to the ceramic coating of the external surfaces, the choice was influenced both by a bond with the local area – which is part of the ceramic district – and by a desire for innovation: the coating is a continuous skin that envelops both the vertical walls and the roof, hiding the gutters and downspouts, while ensuring a clean shape and easily recognizable features.
The ventilated façade features Cotto d’Este surfaces from the BLACK-WHITE collection, porcelain stoneware slabs which, thanks to their extremely reduced thickness and large sizes, are able to guarantee unparalleled elasticity and resistance.
Among the solutions in the Kerlite 5plus Ultrawhite range, 2,300 sq m was used for the outer covering with a silk finish, which guarantees an attractive silk effect. For an additional 150 sq m – also on the external façade – a glossy finish was chosen which, thanks to a light patina effect, remains soft and captivating and is characterized by a surprising shiny effect for absolute white. For both finishes, the size of the slabs is 100x300 cm with a thickness of 5.5 cm.
Inside the building, for the floor coverings, the Mario Cucinella Architects firm chose the Blustyle’s Blutech collection by Cotto d’Este, in the natural Anthracite colour.
