After a difficult winter and many months of restrictions, the Greek summer is shyly smiling to us and tourism is taking off again. We start dreaming of travelling once again and airports are already bustling with life. The joy of travelling starts at the airport – especially if it is an impressive one, like the recently upgraded Thessaloniki International Airport ‘Macedonia’, which is now double in size, with a modern design and plenty of new shops and eating establishments. One of its most popular restaurants is La Pasteria, which bears the signature of Chadios Architects and promises to make the waiting time of passengers and visitors a pleasant and relaxing experience. Of course, in a restaurant, dishes are what matters most, but the ambience also plays a significant role. And this is where PROLAT came in, applying to the floors of La Pasteria one of its top quality products, LavaMosaic. LavaMosaic is ideal for interior floor coating and PROLAT unreservedly recommends it not only for private residences but also for all kinds of shops, hotels and eating establishments where floors are subject to heavy use, as it is a particularly hard-wearing and anti-slip material, which, thanks to a special varnish, does not stain and is remarkably easy to clean. PROLAT guarantees that, apart from being perfectly functional, LavaMosaic also offers an impeccable aesthetic result, which can ideally set off the decoration, atmosphere and personality of a place. In addition, it is available in a wide variety of colours that can satisfy all demands and preferences. Enjoy, then… and have nice and safe trips!

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.

A garden is priceless in a city, as it is literally a window to nature. Moreover, with the right interventions, it may be converted into a little private paradise that can offer a breath of fresh air and precious doses of beauty. To achieve this, apart from inspiration and imagination, you need suitable materials that combine quality, durability and high aesthetics. For the beautiful and functionally designed garden of this house in Thrakomakedones, a privileged and rather sparsely populated residential area at the foot of Mount Parnitha, PROLAT had exactly what was needed: Quartz Mosaic, one of its most popular products that is widely used for floor coating mainly in outdoor areas, as it has anti-slip properties and exhibits outstanding mechanical strength. Here, it was used on the built benches and the broad, comfortable steps leading to the front door of this modern but picturesque stone built house. Quartz Mosaic is available in a wide variety of colours thanks to the different colourations of natural quartz stone. And, precisely because it is natural, PROLAT guarantees that it does not fade if exposed to the bright Greek sun, remains unaffected by weather conditions and requires no maintenance. An additional advantage of Quartz Mosaic is that it has no joints, therefore it is very easy to clean with ordinary household cleaning products. This is how even a small garden can be not merely the extension of a house, but a green fairytale corner where you can relax, daydream and rest after a stressful workday.

Your home mirrors your personality and decisively influences your mood. This is why home environment should be not only functional and ergonomic, for obvious reasons, but also pleasant and restful. In city apartments, where creativity is often impeded by limited space and lack of natural light, the choice of clever and practical quality materials can counterbalance these disadvantages. For the apartment shown in the photos, which is located in Kolonaki, a legendary area of the capital, PROLAT had the most ideal solution: LavaPlaster. Thanks to the absence of joints and its natural beauty, LavaPlaster guarantees a tasteful smooth and uninterrupted surface, which makes a room look larger and lighter. PROLAT unconditionally recommends this hard-wearing and perfectly waterproof material, available in more than 150 lovely shades, not only for floors but also for staircases, countertops, built beds, bathrooms and various other surfaces. It is also worth noting that covering LavaPlaster with a special varnish ensures full protection against staining by pollutants, oils, etc. PROLAT had, however, another highly advantageous proposal for the specific apartment: with the use of Betoform style and concrete boards on the walls, it achieved an original and exceptionally attractive aesthetic result that immediately catches and pleases the eye. This proves yet again that with suitable quality materials, imagination and passion any everyday life space can be literally transformed into a personal oasis of peace and tranquillity.

The secret for a successful renovation is to create something original, attractive and functional building upon whatever tasteful and symbolical is worth keeping and marrying old and new elements. Panagakis Crepe Café in beautiful Aegina, continuing a 150-year family tradition as an eating establishment, keeps pleasing both the palate and the eye of its loyal customers through its recently renovated shop. PROLAT played a leading part in the café’s new image by choosing LavaPaint Finishing Render with Kourasani for all the walls. LavaPaint always makes a difference because, contrary to ordinary paints that can offer nothing more than an indifferent plastic surface, it can guarantee a special, refreshingly rough natural feeling with its slightly coarse texture and discreet, restful colours. Moreover, LavaPaint is suitable both for interior and exterior walls and perfectly waterproof. For the bathrooms, PROLAT chose LavaPlaster, a tried, tested and well known material that creates monolithic and completely waterproof surfaces. LavaPlaster is available in more than 150 lovely shades and, thanks to the use of a special varnish, it is fully protected against staining by pollutants, oils, etc. PROLAT products, such as LavaPaint and LavaPlaster, combine excellent durability, natural beauty, practical advantages and competitive prices, which makes them an ideal solution both for new works and for all sorts of renovations. Because quality is always the key.
