PROLAT GOES TO MAN & MANETTI
Nowadays, a time when everybody is busy and pressed for time, shopping for clothes is not a mere necessity but also a splendid opportunity to relax and enjoy yourself. And enjoyment starts in the eyes. Man & Manetti knows it well, that’s why they wanted their new store in River West to be a pleasant and friendly place that would reflect the company’s aesthetic standards and attract customers. PROLAT made sure this became a reality. LavaPaint with Kourasani, which was chosen for the walls, is a special material that offers unique naturalness when you wish for something better than the monotonously uniform plastic surfaces given by ordinary paints. Its discreet colour and slightly coarse texture serve perfectly the image of comfort and elegance that matches the company culture. LavaPaint is ideal for all walls, interior or exterior, as it combines the freshness and beauty of natural appearance with complete waterproofing and durability, while it is also available as a finishing render for external thermal insulation. On the floor PROLAT used one of its most popular products, LavaPlaster, a reinforced, waterproof and exceptionally hard-wearing material only 4mm thick that guarantees absolutely smooth surfaces with no joints and is available in a wide variety of colours. Apart from floors and walls, PROLAT also recommends LavaPlaster for staircases, countertops, bathrooms, built beds, and many other uses. Moreover, a special varnish fully protects surfaces against staining by pollutants, oils, etc. Finally, the solution proposed by PROLAT for countertops was the ultimate DIY product: LavaPlaster Cream, a particularly practical material in paste form that ensures functionality and a perfect aesthetic result. The overall final outcome justifies the choices of PROLAT and proves once again the high quality and versatility of its products.
PROLAT CREATES AWESOME BUILDING FACADES
Colours break the monotony of everyday life, rejuvenate the places we live and work in and have a direct impact on our mood. This is why the selection of the right colour, both in new works and in restorations, is the principal element in the creation of a pleasant, friendly and attractive environment. PROLAT goes one step further, offering a high quality paint that guarantees not only great durability and perfect waterproofing but also an impressive aesthetic result: the natural paint with kurasani LavaPaint. It is a “colour” applied with a spatula, suitable for interior and exterior vertical surfaces of houses, shops, hotels and all sorts of public and private buildings. PROLAT recommends it especially for facades and exterior walls because, thanks to its slightly coarse texture, it creates a truly unique sense of naturalness and freshness, as shown in the photos of this recently renovated stately private residence in Kifissia, Athens. It is worth noting that LavaPaint is also available as a finishing render in exterior thermal insulation systems. So, if you do not simply wish for an ordinary paint but aim for monolithic, coloured, waterproof surfaces, PROLAT once again has the ideal solution: LavaPaint, an excellent product that can bring colour and beauty to your life.
PROLAT GOES TO ILIAS LALAOUNIS JEWELRY MUSEUM!
It is said that all that glitters is not gold… yet sometimes it is! In Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum, a truly magical place in the heart of the historical centre of the capital, at the very foot of the Acropolis, that used to house the workshops and family home of the famous goldsmith, artist and academician, it is not only the exquisite exhibits that glitter but also the building itself – both metaphorically and literally! On the Roof Garden, PROLAT was called on to contribute to the creation of an environment worthy of the glamour of the first and only Museum of Jewelry and Decorative Arts in Greece and it did, with an equally unique product: Quartz Mosaic. In this specific case, it was decided to use quartz from the Gold series (the most impressive one of the company thanks to the golden glints in the material), which is perfectly suited both for the building and for the theme of the museum. Quartz Mosaic is a versatile and tasteful anti-slip floor coating with outstanding mechanical strength, recommended by PROLAT mainly for outdoor areas of all types. The polyurethane resin that it contains lends perfect elasticity to the material, while the absence of joints makes it particularly easy to clean. PROLAT guarantees that Quartz Mosaic, which is available in various colours, thanks to the natural quartz stone contained, does not fade if exposed to sunlight, remains unaltered in any weather conditions and requires no maintenance. Quartz Mosaic Gold is indeed a valuable product that justifies both its reputation and its name! Construction Partner: Kappa Advice Colour Code Applied: QM70
PROLAT GOES TO RAFINA!
One of the properties that are considered to be particularly desirable in a product is versatility. And one of the most popular PROLAT products that definitely belongs to this category is Quartz Mosaic – a material suitable for floor coating mainly, though not exclusively, in outdoor areas, small or big, public or private. PROLAT recommends Quartz Mosaic not only for pedestrian precincts, shops and eating establishments but also for private residences like the elegant house in Rafina shown in the photos, where it may be used on balconies, terraces, staircases, garden walkways and garages. A dark colour, such as QM61, is an ideal choice for parking spaces, and colour QM64 is truly beautiful for a house entrance, whereas the anti-slip edition (colour QM68) is strongly recommended for exterior staircases. Quartz Mosaic owes the vast variety of colours in which it is available to the different colorations of natural quartz stone, thanks to which it does not fade if exposed to sunlight and remains unaltered in any weather conditions, with no need for maintenance. Last but not least, PROLAT guarantees the great mechanical strength and elasticity of the product, which is also very easy to clean, as no joints are required. A clever and practical solution with various uses that covers perfectly all requirements, preferences and expectations.
PROLAT GOES TO PATIO VILLAS!
In Neochori, Mani, perched on a hill that dominates a breathtaking landscape of wild beauty, Patio Villas, a luxury complex of private mansions, overlooks the endless sea. The four independent villas, combining typical traditional elements and all modern comforts, are an excellent example of the imposing architecture of Mani. PROLAT contributed to the creation of a particularly attractive image in perfect harmony with the natural environment with one of its most popular products, LavaPlaster. It is a reinforced material that can guarantee great durability and absolutely smooth, monolithic and waterproof surfaces only 4 mm thick. Here, PROLAT used LavaPlaster for the floors and bathrooms. LavaPlaster, which is also suitable for staircases, countertops, built beds etc., is available in more than 150 shades that can satisfy all preferences and demands, and impresses visitors with its natural beauty. In addition, the use of a special varnish protects fully surfaces against staining by pollutants, oils, etc. The contribution of PROLAT, however, was not limited to only one material. It is well known that in stone-built buildings it is very important to use high standard mortar both for aesthetic reasons and to ensure waterproofing. The solution suggested here by PROLAT was Coloured Stone Mortar, a bioclimatic material consisting solely of natural ingredients: ceramic tile powder, silica sand, Theran earth and hydrated lime. The combination of the two latter ones creates hydraulic properties that enhance its strength and waterproofing ability. PROLAT unconditionally recommends Coloured Stone Mortar even for areas with very low temperatures or near the sea. Lastly, it should be noted that the specific material allows buildings to “breathe”, while at the same time lending them a graceful appearance and a lovely colour thanks to the powdered tiles it contains. The final result fascinates the eye, proving once more the quality excellence of the products of PROLAT.
PROLAT GOES TO NAXOS!
In Naxos, the fertile island that rightly bears the title “Queen of the Cyclades”, the peaceful and rich in biodiversity nature once made Kazantzakis write, “If Paradise was on earth, it would be right here”. In such an idyllic landscape, in the village of Vivlos, a beautiful modern villa with evident elements of traditional island architecture, the Villa of delight and serenity, welcomes visitors in its comfortable and hospitable spaces and promises to enchant them with its view and earthy, relaxing colours that match perfectly with the serene natural environment. PROLAT contributed decisively to this attractive picture with two of its well-known top quality products: LavaPlaster for the bathrooms and Coloured Stone Mortar for the whole house. LavaPlaster needs no introduction. Its natural beauty and the absence of joints, which ensures a monolithic, perfectly smooth surface with no fissures, along with its high durability and waterproof qualities, have made it one of the most popular products of PROLAT. It is used both in new and in renovation works, for staircases, countertops, bathrooms, built beds etc. and is available in more than 150 lovely shades that cover all architectural and decoration needs and preferences. Furthermore, LavaPlaster may be covered with a special varnish that protects the surface against all sorts of stains. Coloured Stone Mortar, an equally practical and functional product of PROLAT, is an ideal solution for stone-built buildings, both for aesthetic reasons and to ensure waterproofing. It is a bioclimatic product consisting solely of natural ingredients: ceramic tile powder, silica sand, Theran earth and hydrated lime. The latter two create hydraulic properties that enhance its strength and waterproofing ability. One of the most remarkable advantages of Coloured Stone Mortar is that it allows the building to “breathe” while also lightening it and lending it special charm, partly thanks to its colour, which it owes to the tile powder it contains. These two excellent products of PROLAT were harmoniously combined to lead to the impressive final result captured in the photos: a particularly tasteful, relaxing and functional environment.
PROLAT GOES TO PARIKIA!
PROLAT travelled once again to Paros, the beloved Cycladic island that is famous for its beautiful traditional villages and stunning golden beaches. There, in Parikia, the picturesque capital of the island that captivates the visitor with its paved alleys, whitewashed houses and little yards bursting with flowers, PROLAT had the chance to leave its creative mark on one of the most elegant and tasteful buildings of the area with one of its most popular products: LavaPaint. Because a special building like the old Petros Ragousis edifice, which has been proudly surveying the port since 1887, deserves nothing but the most special materials. And LavaPaint stands out indeed because it doesn’t merely give a monotonously uniform plastic surface, but offers a particularly attractive aesthetic result thanks to its slightly coarse texture that creates a pleasantly rugged sense of naturalness. Moreover, the colour that was chosen perfectly matches the island’s atmosphere and residential environment. PROLAT recommends LavaPaint with Kourasani for interior and exterior walls both in new works and in restorations, for their transformation into monolithic, waterproof, coloured surfaces. The product is also available in a special edition as a finishing render in exterior thermal insulation systems. LavaPaint guarantees all three desirable properties of a top quality paint: practicality, durability and beauty.
PROLAT GOES TO SCHINIAS!
In Schinias, one of the best beaches of Attica, at the northeastern edge of the plain of Marathon, PROLAT had the chance to complete ideally the idyllic picture of a garden by the sea with its most suitable product for areas around swimming pools: Quartz Mosaic. It is an anti-slip floor coating material with outstanding mechanical strength and great elasticity that is perfect mainly, though not exclusively, for outdoor areas of all types and sizes. Quartz Mosaic is the reliable solution of PROLAT for hotels, shops or private residences like the one in the photos, not only because it is safe and practical, as it has no joints, therefore it is very easy to clean, but also because, thanks to its natural quartz stone, it does not fade if exposed to sunlight and is unaffected by any weather conditions with no need for maintenance. Moreover, an additional equally important and instantly visible advantage is its high aesthetic value highlighted through the various colours in which it is available. In this case, PROLAT chose colour QM68 of Quartz Mosaic, a shade of grey particularly restful for the eye that perfectly matches the green of the garden and the blue of the sea. It was the final and decisive touch in the creation of a pleasant and relaxing environment that invites you to enjoy the view, nature and the wonderful Greek summer.
