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. Its advantages include the wide variety of available colour shades and of course its incomparable price, which is definitely the most economical one on the market today. The demanding circumstances of modern life call for convenient products that can also respond to contemporary aesthetic standards, so PROLAT’s Lavapaint with kourasani, a reliable material that combines top quality, durability and low cost, is undoubtedly the cleverest and most practical solution.
PROLAT GOES TO PETRALONA!
Even amid the chaos of a busy and densely populated metropolis like Athens, you can always discover picturesque little corners, peaceful oases where you can get a precious respite from the hectic rhythms and the stress of modern life and enjoy quality free time. This is exactly what the restaurant Pleiades in Petralona is: a warm and agreeable hangout that pleasantly surprises you with the variety of its delicious dishes and its beautiful patio. PROLAT contributed to the creation of this friendly and welcoming environment, covering all floors with quartz mosaic, a product ideal for surfaces demanding coating materials of great durability. Quartz mosaic by PROLAT is not subject either to everyday use wear or to friction due to dragging tables and chairs because it is a particularly strong material containing real natural quartz stone. In addition, it is anti-slip and available in a wide variety of colours, and it does not require maintenance. The final result is aesthetically pleasing, safe and, above all, perfectly functional.

PROLAT COOPERATES WITH ADIDAS!
Quality knows no frontiers. And this time PROLAT travelled to Zagreb, a city full of life and fascinating medieval elements, in the context of its cooperation with ADIDAS, the largest sportswear manufacturer in Europe and the second largest in the world. In the impressive shop of ADIDAS, a modern corner in a picturesque environment, PROLAT applied Lavaplaster to the floors and the entrance, creating an uninterrupted surface that gives a pleasant impression of spaciousness and is restful to the eye. It is worth noting that this is not the first time we have cooperated with ADIDAS; this major cooperation first began in Cyprus and the company shop in the Croatian capital was the next natural step. Feeling proud of the quality of our products and our presence in large-scale projects, we are looking forward to our next exciting destination!
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 ZAKYNTHOS!
Zakynthos or Zante, also known as “Fior di Levante” (Flower of the East), is a verdant fertile Ionian island with deep azure waters, a stunning coastline, habitats of rare ecological value and a unique Heptanesian architecture with intense Venetian influences. In beautiful Tsilivi, only 4 km from Chora, the capital of the island, Contessina Suites Hotel, built under the architectural direction of Sotiris Tsergas of Block722, on one of the quietest and cleanest beaches of the island, which has been awarded a Blue Flag, offers guests quality hospitality, comfort and impeccable aesthetics. The natural paint of PROLAT, which has been used to all interior and exterior walls, has contributes to the hotel’s elegant and tasteful picture. The soft, discreet shades and the harmonious color combinations of PROLAT natural paint are restful to the eye and predispose guests to relax and enjoy to the fullest a dream vacation in an idyllic environment. We are already packing for Zante…
PROLAT GOES TO EXARCHEIA!
Exarcheia, one of the most fascinating historical districts of the Greek capital, is famous not only for its lively, insubordinate character and its rebellious aura, but also for its authenticity, its various hangouts of artists, students and intellectuals and its architectural diversity, reflected in old neoclassical mansions, bohemian corners, houses and little shops reminding of old Athens. It was in such a picturesque little house that the intervention of PROLAT was needed. LavaPlaster was applied to the staircase and quartz mosaic to the yard. It is worth noting that PROLAT quartz mosaic can literally transform a balcony or a yard into a particularly tasteful and pleasant space; and, what is more, it is wear resistant, does not require maintenance and possesses anti-slip properties. This is how an old building may be converted into a modern, functional and attractive residence.
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.
