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.
PROLAT GOES TO TYROS
The picturesque village of Tyros, situated among the fjords of the lacy coastline of Eastern Peloponnese, charms every visitor with its peaceful scenic beauty and crystal clear waters. There, perched on the plateau of a steep slope, Villa Melana faces the enormity of the open horizon. The complex, an architectural creation of Valia Foufa and Panagiotis Papassotiriou, consists of three distinct volumes and is clad in Arcadian stone, thus blending perfectly with its natural surroundings. PROLAT has had a double contribution to the particularly attractive final result, coating the interior spaces of the villa with Lavaplaster and applying quartz mosaic to all exterior surfaces, especially around the infinity pool that looks like a natural extension of the sea. Quartz mosaic by PROLAT, which is 100% anti-slip and extremely resistant, is an ideal solution for the areas around swimming pools and all exterior spaces in general. And it is available in a variety of colours ensuring colour harmony and balance, which is one of the most important elements of a tasteful, relaxing and, most of all, pleasant environment.
PROLAT GOES TO SYROS!
On the captivating island of Syros, the “Lady of the Aegean”, where Cycladic culture coexists with medieval charm and neoclassical elegance, you often have the impression that time has stopped and you are back in the days of the Venetians and the pirates. This is why, when constructing a new building, one has a great responsibility: to be faithful to the tradition and the aristocratic aura that have characterized this unique architectural environment for centuries. This spacious and functional country house, built on a smooth hillside with an unlimited view of the sea, thanks to its natural building materials and its discreet colours seems to be a natural part of the serene landscape that surrounds it. PROLAT had the ideal solution for the exterior surfaces: quartz mosaic, a material that is known to exhibit an outstanding mechanical strength, does not require maintenance and is available in a rich variety of colours. PROLAT has contributed creatively to the interior of this impressive house as well, with an original and very practical Betocore table that has a concrete appearance and texture, but is very light and easy to move. Its minimalistic design and mild colour shades add a modern touch to the room and are particularly restful to the eye. The final result offers what we all desperately need both in our everyday life and when we are on holiday: class, comfort and peace.
PROLAT GOES TO ITALY… VIA KIFISIA
City life can be exhausting and everybody wishes for an antidote to monotony and fatigue. Fortunately, even in the chaos of a metropolis, you can always discover small oases that can offer you a valuable break from the stress and pressure of everyday life; for instance, hangouts with authentic Italian cuisine reminding of homemade food at its best… such as Casa di Rena, in Kifissia, Athens. Before you lose yourself in the magic of its delicious choices, you have the chance to relax in its warm and friendly environment. PROLAT has decisively contributed to the creation of this attractive environment: apart from Lavaplaster, which has been used in the modern bathrooms of the restaurant, PROLAT has also coated all floors, both exterior and interior, with quartz mosaic, a material known for its high quality and versatility. The result is a functional and tasteful uninterrupted surface with no joints. The specific floor coating material, thanks to its quartz content, is particularly wear-resistant and suitable for all sorts of hard use. In addition, it is not affected by ordinary household chemicals and cleaning agents, therefore it is very easy to mop and clean. Modern life is challenging and hectic; hospitable corners like Casa di Rena make it more pleasant. And quality products like those of PROLAT thankfully make it easier!
