PROLAT GOES TO MIKRA, KALAMARIA!
In Mikra, Kalamaria, one of the less central but easily accessible residential zones of Thessaloniki with modern houses, recreation and sport centers, AP Domiki Construction Company, in cooperation with the municipal authorities, has created a beautiful park that is indeed a little oasis of peace and good taste both for the locals and for visitors. One of the best features of the new park are the wide and smooth paths unfolding in the midst of the green grass. PROLAT has applied ready stabilized ceramic floor to these paths, as it is perfect for all outdoor spaces, such as yards, tracks, pedestrian areas, garden surfaces, etc. It is an absolutely eco-friendly and bioclimatic material characterized by a remarkably natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing appearance. It is an ideal alternative to concrete and at the same time an economical and advantageous solution in comparison with other floor types. It is worth noting that the final surface is ceramic – earthen, “compact”, and also comfortable for walking. As to its particularly attractive colour, it is due to the ground natural tiles and various pebbles contained. Another product of PROLAT that combines high quality, practical value and a low price.
PROLAT GOES TO RETZIKI!
In Retziki, a true little paradise at the northern edge of the Greek co-capital, long famous for its unique natural beauty and favourable climate, thanks to which it gradually developed into a resort area with lots of country houses and villas, PROLAT, with its quality products and in cooperation with ANADOMO Construction Company, had the chance to contribute to the creation of a particularly tasteful and functional private residence. The outdoor floor was coated with quartz mosaic, a material with outstanding mechanical strength that does not even require maintenance. PROLAT chose the same material, which also happens to be anti-slip, for interior and exterior pool surfaces. Natural paint, guaranteeing an attractive appearance that remains unaltered through time, was used on the walls of the house. Finally, for the bathrooms, PROLAT chose one of its best-known products, Lavaplaster, an exceptionally hard-wearing and perfectly waterproof material available in 150 colours. The final result fully satisfies even the most demanding tastes!
PROLAT GOES TO THE BRIDGE OF PLAKA!
Arch stone bridges scattered all over mainland Greece are inseparably interwoven not only with Greek traditional architecture but also with local and national history, as shown by the countless folk songs and legends linked with them. The arch stone bridge of Plaka, about 50 km from the city of Ioannina, was built over Arachthos River, in a breathtakingly beautiful landscape, on the site of an older bridge that was destroyed in 1860. It was the largest single-arch bridge in the Balkans and the third largest one in Europe, as it was 21 meters high and 71 meters long, with an arch span of 40 meters. In 1863 it was built from scratch with a grant of Dimitrios Arvanitoyannis from the nearby village of Pramanta, but it collapsed again shortly after its formal inauguration. It was reconstructed in 1866 and the cost, which amounted to 170,000 piastres, was covered by the banker Ioannis Loulis and donations from the local communities. Unfortunately, in 2007, the bridge collapsed almost entirely due to heavy rains and in February 2015 what remained of the central part collapsed and was washed away by a flash flood. The government responded immediately and the National Metsovian Technical University of Athens undertook to design and plan the restoration of the historical bridge. Nirikos Techniki SA and Iliopoulos Bros General Partnership are cooperating in this awesome construction project, which is already underway, while PROLAT contributes the materials needed. The restoration of this historical monument, which is considered to be one of the greatest challenges in the technical construction sector worldwide, proceeds based on the specifications of the original materials of the old bridge. The materials used for the reconstruction are the certified products of PROLAT used by the archaeological services for plasters and grouting. Several local masons and stone hewers contribute their valuable experience, giving stones the desirable form and shape with their hammers and chisels, to ensure a final result as close as possible to the original structure. PROLAT feels greatly honoured to participate in the reconstruction of this emblematic bridge and is proud to have a hand in the materialization of such a momentous project by contributing its quality materials.
PROLAT GOES TO HAIDARI!
The hectic pace, aesthetic monotony and impossibly tight work or study schedules in an oppressive urban environment call more urgently than ever before for a microcosm of peace where we can wind down, recharge our batteries, remember our life priorities and enjoy moments of calm and relaxation. In a two-storey house in Haidari that could have been a common characterless building like so many others, experience, imagination and the quality materials of PROLAT have created an oasis of beauty and simplicity that pleases the eye and refreshes the mind. PROLAT has coated exterior floors and stairs with its Quartz Mosaic, a very practical anti-slip and wear-resistant material that does not require maintenance. For interior floors, PROLAT has used Lavaplaster, one of its most popular products, that offers a perfect result – an uninterrupted smooth surface with no joints. Finally, both on interior and on exterior walls, the discreet and soft shades of PROLAT Natural Paint ideally show off the comfortable and light space and the functional modern furniture. Our home deserves to be built with enthusiasm, careful designing and the best materials… for it is our precious shelter and our personal everyday paradise.
