Coloured Stone Mortar
Coloured Stone Mortar with Kourasani is bioclimatic and has only natural ingredients. It offers high durability and excellent workability. It allows the house to “breathe” and at the same time illuminates the stone building with a special beauty and aesthetics. The ingredients of the Colored Natural Stone Joint are the Thera earth-pozzolani, the ceramic flour, the lime and the quartz sand. With the coexistence of lime and thera soil, hydraulic properties are created, which increase both the strength and the waterproofing of the building.
PROLAT GOES TO SAMOS!
The main difference between a tourist and a traveller is that the former sees comfort and entertainment an end in itself, wherever he is, while the latter yearns to truly get to know any place he visits, discovering its history, secrets and people. However, this is often difficult, if not impossible, in an impersonal hotel, no matter how luxurious it may be. For those who seek something different, the answer is a holiday residence such as Maria’s Stonehouse in the verdant island of Samos, the birthplace of Pythagoras, which offers the magic of tradition, but not at the expense of a restful and pleasant stay. This is why the traditional materials required by its architecture and character, namely wood and stone, had to be harmoniously combined with equivalent modern high-quality materials like LavaPlaster, LavaPaint and Coloured Stone Mortar – all well-known products of PROLAT. For the bathrooms, PROLAT recommended LavaPlaster, a hard-wearing and durable material that guarantees absolutely waterproof surfaces in a rich variety of colours, smooth, jointless and, thanks to a special varnish, totally protected against stains and dirt. For the walls, PROLAT chose its popular finishing render LavaPaint, a coloured material applied with a spatula, suitable both for facades and for interior walls. What differentiates LavaPaint from ordinary paints is its discreetly coarse texture that creates a striking sense of naturalness. Finally, mortar is particularly important in such stone built structures. PROLAT had the ideal material: Coloured Stone Mortar, a bioclimatic product with natural ingredients that offers excellent bonding, allows the building to “breathe” and sets it off thanks to its colour, which it owes to the ceramic tile powder it contains. PROLAT offers solutions for all kinds of construction demands, knowledgeably, responsibly and with dedication to quality.
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…
