PROLAT GOES TO “KOULOURADES”!
In the old days street vendors known as koulourades used to sell the famous koulouri of Thessaloniki, a crunchy sesame-seed bread ring, dexterously balancing the trays with their delicious goods on their heads. “Koulourades”, one of the most successful bakery chains that have been recently founded in Greece, has undertaken the task of making this traditional healthy and widely used snack that dates back to the Byzantine Period popular among the young too. PROLAT has done its bit in the new “Koulourades” shop in Ilion, using its antislip and particularly wear-resistant quartz mosaic on the floor. In addition, PROLAT natural paint has been used both on the ceiling and on the interior and exterior walls, creating a really attractive, friendly and welcoming environment that will certainly become the favourite hangout of the neighbourhood, especially for koulouri lovers of all ages.
PROLAT GOES TO PORTO RAFTI!
Porto Rafti, an idyllic resort in East Attica far enough from the capital centre to remind of a holiday destination and close enough to be easily accessible to Athenians, sports a wide variety of quality restaurants. One of the newest ones is Kasap Steakhouse, which, as its name denotes, specializes in meat dishes. Kasap welcomes customers not only with its delectable specialities but also with its pleasant, friendly and hospitable environment. PROLAT has played a decisive role in the creation of this environment, coating all floors with quartz mosaic, a particularly hard-wearing material resistant to wear due to dragging furniture such as chairs and tables, inalterable in time and washable even with a pressure washer hose. Lavaplaster, another popular product of PROLAT has also been chosen both for the bathroom and for interior walls, where a very special style has been used with an evidently tasteful and attractive final result. The photos prove beyond any doubt the significance of selecting the appropriate materials in the creation of any professional or domestic environment according to the highest aesthetic and quality standards.
PROLAT GOES TO HYDRA!
The island of Hydra, the “Noble Lady of the Argosaronic Gulf”, a sun-kissed paradise with rich history, picturesque cobblestone roads, little bays with crystal clear waters and majestic old traditional houses, fascinates visitors offering them, apart from the beauty of the natural landscape and the charms of a cosmopolitan destination, real peace and tranquillity ensured by the prohibition of all motor vehicles. For those who seek this precious tranquillity, Arokaria Boutique Apartments are one of the most ideal choices. In cooperation with the architect Alexandra Chronaki, PROLAT had the best solution for the floors and bathrooms: Lavaplaster in soft shades perfectly matched with the Greek sunlight and the white colour dominating these elegant minimalistically decorated apartments. The natural look and high aesthetic value of PROLAT Lavaplaster have contributed to the creation of a relaxing, pleasant and hospitable environment, while its excellent durability guarantees protection from wear, humidity and staining. The essence often lies in the details and a quality material can be the detail that really makes a difference.
PROLAT GOES TO NIKKIE!
The summer Nikkei in Kolonaki is even more impressive than expected. Giorgos Panteloukas and GJP design & construction impressed once again with the impressive decoration dominated by rich, warm colours, well defined lines and an aura of mystery and exoticism. The blue non-slip floor with the quartz mosaic of PROLAT has as a result an exciting and attractive environment.

Alona, a residential complex of 4 independent villas, perched on a wildflower-strewn hillside just a short distance from the beach of Vagia, enjoy the caress of the sun and the breeze, overlooking the endless Aegean blue. PROLAT had the ideal solution for all interior floors and bathrooms: Lavaplaster in a discreet shade of gray, one of the 150 colours in which it is available. And what is more, PROLAT guarantees that this popular and versatile material is exceptionally hard-wearing and waterproof. As for the aesthetic result, Lavaplaster matches perfectly the austere, clean lines of the traditional architecture and the bright colours of the Cycladic natural landscape.
PROLAT GOES TO THE EVENT LOFT OF ZOUMBOULAKIS GALLERIES!
When inspiration meets experience, little oases can be created even in the dull gray environment of a densely populated metropolis and give life beauty and colour. This is exactly what happened in Petralona, Athens, when the magic wand of Art touched an old, grim and impersonal factory transforming it into a real jewel for the area: Zoumboulakis Gallery. PROLAT played a major role in the impressive reformation of the building with its widely recognized products, including industrial floor, Lavaplaster for the bathrooms and Lavamosaic for floors both at interior and exterior areas. Imagination, passion and the wear-resistant and well known for their high aesthetic value materials of PROLAT helped create a modern venue for hire suitable for various cultural events, such as painting, sculpture and photography exhibitions, theatrical performances, book presentations, private banquets etc. To remind us that beauty is not a luxury but a necessity in life; and that what really matters is not merely to survive but to live well.
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 SIFNOS!
Sifnos has a long-standing tradition in pottery and cooking, as it is the birthplace of Nikos Tselementes, the most influential Greek chef of the 20th century. The island is famous for the architecture of its settlements, characterized by snow-white houses and combinations of rectangular shapes arranged around cobbled streets with carefully whitewashed joints that create a most impressive diversity. The architectural office KORDAS Architects, responsible for the design and renovation of a residence in Camares, cooperated once again with PROLAT in a challenging project with the goal of combining the creation of clean architectural lines with the preservation of traditional features. The white LavaPlaster finish used by PROLAT in all interior areas, including the living room, the sitting room, the fireplace, kitchen countertops and all bathroom surfaces, has turned the house into a delightful home for its owners and lent it the appeal of a truly ‘unique’ character.
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 OLYRA!
Even in the grey and dull environment of a densely populated city you can occasionally find beautiful little corners that break the monotony and add a touch of beauty to the area. Olyra, a new bakery in Vrilissia continuing the tradition of a boulangerie-patisserie well known in the northern suburbs of the capital, is such a welcome small oasis. PROLAT contributed significantly to the creation of this shop, designed and constructed by LAB DC, using its natural paint on all wall surfaces. PROLAT’S Lavapaint with kourasani is an ideal choice both for interior and for exterior spaces, as it offers an absolutely natural-looking, attractive and highly wear-resistant result that does not change over time.
