Coloured Stone Mortar
PROLAT coloured stone mortar is bioclimatic and contains only natural ingredients. It offers great strength and excellent workability. It allows the house to “breathe”, while at the same time lightening stone-built structures lending them a special beauty and a highly aesthetic appearance.
Its ingredients are Theran earth-pozzolan, tile powder, hydrated lime, and silica sand. It owes its colour to the powdered tile it contains. Thanks to the combination of hydrated lime and Theran earth, it possesses hydraulic properties that enhance both its strength and its waterproofing ability.
PROLAT GOES TO CEPHALONIA!
The verdant island of Cephalonia, the largest of the Ionian Islands, combines golden beaches with emerald waters, wooded mountains and hills, enchanting landscapes and traditional villages. In one of them, Fiscardo, Evreti Dreamhouse, a stone-built house with a private swimming pool and stunning sea views, welcomes guests offering them a dream stay in a serene, idyllic environment. PROLAT has added its own touches to this beautiful villa with coloured stone mortar, Lavaplaster in bathrooms and on interior floors, and quartz mosaic on exterior floors, which are totally anti-slip and do not require maintenance. PROLAT products, famous for their top quality and high aesthetic value, guarantee a perfect final result and exceptional resistance to wear and time, blending perfectly into the fascinating architecture of the building and the mild colours of the natural environment.
PROLAT GOES TO LEONIDIO!
Leonidio is built on the shores of the Myrtoon Sea and is only a one-hour drive from Athens. The town is blessed with stunning beaches and a breathtaking landscape combining mountains and sea. Over the last few years it has emerged as a climbing destination. Furthermore, it has been recognized as a traditional settlement possessing impressive mansions. One of them, dating back to 1900, was recently renovated by the architect Eleni Danesi, who used two products of PROLAT, Lavaplaster and stone mortar, with excellent results. The Guesthouse of Themistocles and Panayiota is ideal for a quality getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life.
PROLAT GOES TO KOS!
Thanks to its fascinating local colour, its rich history and its enchanting golden beaches, Kos, the birthplace of Hippocrates, the father of Medicine, is one of the most popular islands of the Dodecanese. In the picturesque village of Kefalos, Voudouris family, with great passion and respect for tradition, has restored six 19th century buildings, creating “Mylotopi”, a tiny settlement consisting of a bakery, a traditional house, a windmill, a threshing floor, a tunnel and an old café-restaurant. The complex, a typical sample of the island’s architecture and the cultural identity of the area, enables visitors to discover the lifestyle and everyday habits of a bygone era. PROLAT has contributed to this amazing project by applying LavaPlaster to floors and natural paint to all interior and exterior walls. PROLAT stone mortar has also been used in all stone-built structures of the complex, a bioclimatic material guaranteeing excellent workability and strength and high aesthetic quality. The final result is definitely impressive. So, “Mylotopi” has now been added to the countless sights of the island, offering the unique experience of a trip through time…
PROLAT GOES TO KALYMNOS!
Kalymnos, the fourth largest island of the Dodecanese, which is inextricably linked with the rich Greek maritime tradition and sponge diving, is also a popular alternative tourism destination thanks to its landscape diversity and geomorphology. This is the idyllic natural environment where the house shown in these photos was built –a house that respects both nature and the needs of modern life. PROLAT stone mortar, which has been used here, is a bioclimatic product with natural ingredients that allows the building to “breathe”, while at the same time ensuring a fascinating aesthetic result. PROLAT natural paints that have been used both on interior and exterior walls have contributed decisively to this result. And what is more, although this impressive house is by the sea, there are no signs of wear, as the above materials are particularly resistant to all sorts of weather conditions, as well as to salty sea air and humidity. PROLAT has added the final touch applying LAVAPLASTER to the bathrooms and exterior steps, thus creating a functional and pleasant residence in perfect harmony with the beautiful nature that surrounds it.
