Which Emilgroup product characteristics were most valuable?
For the Kekomo project, we chose the Metal.it collection for the floor, in Steel colour and in the 60x60 cm size. We liked this collection’s minimal aesthetic, combined with excellent technical performances, thanks to its resistance to heavy traffic levels. What’s more, the glinting semi-polished finish added luminosity to the interiors.
For the external cladding, we chose the Tr3nd collection by Ergon, in Needle Black decor and 30x30 cm size. This series enabled us to create a hand-crafted look, in a dark colour that contrasted with the interior and highlighted the iconic shed-like cross-section of the building.
Did the renovation of the home in Alicante present any particular technical demands?
The Reforma para Cristian Project was a residential renovation, and as in all projects of this kind, we had to maintain some of the external walls and the pillars which made up the supporting “skeleton” of the structure. On this basis we created a design tailored to the requirements of the client, who wanted innovation in both design and materials.
Which collection was chosen for this innovative project?
For the external facades we chose the Lombarda collection by Ergon in grey, in the 45x90 size. We liked this product’s strength and its uniformity. Installed as an external cladding on the ground floor of the house, it provided a visual continuity that makes the project unique.
How is porcelain stoneware placed within this context of changes and evolutions, also in requirements for architecture?
Porcelain stoneware coverings are an excellent aid to maintaining the same look over time, thanks to this material’s strength and durability and its maintenance of its technical characteristics and appearance, all areas where it is superior to other more natural materials.
