PROLAT GOES TO NAXOS!
In Naxos, the fertile island that rightly bears the title “Queen of the Cyclades”, the peaceful and rich in biodiversity nature once made Kazantzakis write, “If Paradise was on earth, it would be right here”. In such an idyllic landscape, in the village of Vivlos, a beautiful modern villa with evident elements of traditional island architecture, the Villa of delight and serenity, welcomes visitors in its comfortable and hospitable spaces and promises to enchant them with its view and earthy, relaxing colours that match perfectly with the serene natural environment. PROLAT contributed decisively to this attractive picture with two of its well-known top quality products: LavaPlaster for the bathrooms and Coloured Stone Mortar for the whole house. LavaPlaster needs no introduction. Its natural beauty and the absence of joints, which ensures a monolithic, perfectly smooth surface with no fissures, along with its high durability and waterproof qualities, have made it one of the most popular products of PROLAT. It is used both in new and in renovation works, for staircases, countertops, bathrooms, built beds etc. and is available in more than 150 lovely shades that cover all architectural and decoration needs and preferences. Furthermore, LavaPlaster may be covered with a special varnish that protects the surface against all sorts of stains. Coloured Stone Mortar, an equally practical and functional product of PROLAT, is an ideal solution for stone-built buildings, both for aesthetic reasons and to ensure waterproofing. It is a bioclimatic product consisting solely of natural ingredients: ceramic tile powder, silica sand, Theran earth and hydrated lime. The latter two create hydraulic properties that enhance its strength and waterproofing ability. One of the most remarkable advantages of Coloured Stone Mortar is that it allows the building to “breathe” while also lightening it and lending it special charm, partly thanks to its colour, which it owes to the tile powder it contains. These two excellent products of PROLAT were harmoniously combined to lead to the impressive final result captured in the photos: a particularly tasteful, relaxing and functional environment.
PROLAT GOES TO PATIO VILLAS!
In Neochori, Mani, perched on a hill that dominates a breathtaking landscape of wild beauty, Patio Villas, a luxury complex of private mansions, overlooks the endless sea. The four independent villas, combining typical traditional elements and all modern comforts, are an excellent example of the imposing architecture of Mani. PROLAT contributed to the creation of a particularly attractive image in perfect harmony with the natural environment with one of its most popular products, LavaPlaster. It is a reinforced material that can guarantee great durability and absolutely smooth, monolithic and waterproof surfaces only 4 mm thick. Here, PROLAT used LavaPlaster for the floors and bathrooms. LavaPlaster, which is also suitable for staircases, countertops, built beds etc., is available in more than 150 shades that can satisfy all preferences and demands, and impresses visitors with its natural beauty. In addition, the use of a special varnish protects fully surfaces against staining by pollutants, oils, etc. The contribution of PROLAT, however, was not limited to only one material. It is well known that in stone-built buildings it is very important to use high standard mortar both for aesthetic reasons and to ensure waterproofing. The solution suggested here by PROLAT was Coloured Stone Mortar, a bioclimatic material consisting solely of natural ingredients: ceramic tile powder, silica sand, Theran earth and hydrated lime. The combination of the two latter ones creates hydraulic properties that enhance its strength and waterproofing ability. PROLAT unconditionally recommends Coloured Stone Mortar even for areas with very low temperatures or near the sea. Lastly, it should be noted that the specific material allows buildings to “breathe”, while at the same time lending them a graceful appearance and a lovely colour thanks to the powdered tiles it contains. The final result fascinates the eye, proving once more the quality excellence of the products of PROLAT.
PROLAT GOES TO RAFINA!
One of the properties that are considered to be particularly desirable in a product is versatility. And one of the most popular PROLAT products that definitely belongs to this category is Quartz Mosaic – a material suitable for floor coating mainly, though not exclusively, in outdoor areas, small or big, public or private. PROLAT recommends Quartz Mosaic not only for pedestrian precincts, shops and eating establishments but also for private residences like the elegant house in Rafina shown in the photos, where it may be used on balconies, terraces, staircases, garden walkways and garages. A dark colour, such as QM61, is an ideal choice for parking spaces, and colour QM64 is truly beautiful for a house entrance, whereas the anti-slip edition (colour QM68) is strongly recommended for exterior staircases. Quartz Mosaic owes the vast variety of colours in which it is available to the different colorations of natural quartz stone, thanks to which it does not fade if exposed to sunlight and remains unaltered in any weather conditions, with no need for maintenance. Last but not least, PROLAT guarantees the great mechanical strength and elasticity of the product, which is also very easy to clean, as no joints are required. A clever and practical solution with various uses that covers perfectly all requirements, preferences and expectations.
PROLAT GOES TO ILIAS LALAOUNIS JEWELRY MUSEUM!
It is said that all that glitters is not gold… yet sometimes it is! In Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum, a truly magical place in the heart of the historical centre of the capital, at the very foot of the Acropolis, that used to house the workshops and family home of the famous goldsmith, artist and academician, it is not only the exquisite exhibits that glitter but also the building itself – both metaphorically and literally! On the Roof Garden, PROLAT was called on to contribute to the creation of an environment worthy of the glamour of the first and only Museum of Jewelry and Decorative Arts in Greece and it did, with an equally unique product: Quartz Mosaic. In this specific case, it was decided to use quartz from the Gold series (the most impressive one of the company thanks to the golden glints in the material), which is perfectly suited both for the building and for the theme of the museum. Quartz Mosaic is a versatile and tasteful anti-slip floor coating with outstanding mechanical strength, recommended by PROLAT mainly for outdoor areas of all types. The polyurethane resin that it contains lends perfect elasticity to the material, while the absence of joints makes it particularly easy to clean. PROLAT guarantees that Quartz Mosaic, which is available in various colours, thanks to the natural quartz stone contained, does not fade if exposed to sunlight, remains unaltered in any weather conditions and requires no maintenance. Quartz Mosaic Gold is indeed a valuable product that justifies both its reputation and its name! Construction Partner: Kappa Advice Colour Code Applied: QM70
PROLAT GOES TO SCHINIAS!
In Schinias, one of the best beaches of Attica, at the northeastern edge of the plain of Marathon, PROLAT had the chance to complete ideally the idyllic picture of a garden by the sea with its most suitable product for areas around swimming pools: Quartz Mosaic. It is an anti-slip floor coating material with outstanding mechanical strength and great elasticity that is perfect mainly, though not exclusively, for outdoor areas of all types and sizes. Quartz Mosaic is the reliable solution of PROLAT for hotels, shops or private residences like the one in the photos, not only because it is safe and practical, as it has no joints, therefore it is very easy to clean, but also because, thanks to its natural quartz stone, it does not fade if exposed to sunlight and is unaffected by any weather conditions with no need for maintenance. Moreover, an additional equally important and instantly visible advantage is its high aesthetic value highlighted through the various colours in which it is available. In this case, PROLAT chose colour QM68 of Quartz Mosaic, a shade of grey particularly restful for the eye that perfectly matches the green of the garden and the blue of the sea. It was the final and decisive touch in the creation of a pleasant and relaxing environment that invites you to enjoy the view, nature and the wonderful Greek summer.
PROLAT GOES TO PARIKIA!
PROLAT travelled once again to Paros, the beloved Cycladic island that is famous for its beautiful traditional villages and stunning golden beaches. There, in Parikia, the picturesque capital of the island that captivates the visitor with its paved alleys, whitewashed houses and little yards bursting with flowers, PROLAT had the chance to leave its creative mark on one of the most elegant and tasteful buildings of the area with one of its most popular products: LavaPaint. Because a special building like the old Petros Ragousis edifice, which has been proudly surveying the port since 1887, deserves nothing but the most special materials. And LavaPaint stands out indeed because it doesn’t merely give a monotonously uniform plastic surface, but offers a particularly attractive aesthetic result thanks to its slightly coarse texture that creates a pleasantly rugged sense of naturalness. Moreover, the colour that was chosen perfectly matches the island’s atmosphere and residential environment. PROLAT recommends LavaPaint with Kourasani for interior and exterior walls both in new works and in restorations, for their transformation into monolithic, waterproof, coloured surfaces. The product is also available in a special edition as a finishing render in exterior thermal insulation systems. LavaPaint guarantees all three desirable properties of a top quality paint: practicality, durability and beauty.
PROLAT GOES TO AGIA PARASKEVI!
Now that summer – a very hot one, according to predictions – is ante portas, every chance for a little coolness is more than welcome in a densely built city like Athens. And it is a blessing if you happen to have a comfortable exterior space of your own that offers you endless views and various possibilities for optimal exploitation like this private rooftop in Agia Paraskevi. The white furniture that reminds you of holidays and sunny beaches, the well-tended plants, the elegant floor lamps and, of course, the Jacuzzi create a wonderful image which PROLAT completed ideally with its Quartz Mosaic. It is a top quality floor coating material suitable for various uses, especially on rooftops, terraces, balconies, gardens and areas around swimming pools, as it possesses anti-slip properties and exhibits outstanding mechanical strength. PROLAT chose a discreet, pale shade of warm grey (QM15) that matches perfectly the colours of the furniture and the blue of the Attican sky. Moreover, Quartz Mosaic possesses 100% elasticity thanks to the polyurethane resin that it contains and it is very easy to clean as no joints are needed. Lastly, since its natural quartz stone does not fade if exposed to sunlight, PROLAT guarantees that Quartz Mosaic remains unaltered even in adverse weather conditions and requires no special maintenance. One of the many high quality products of PROLAT that makes everyday life easier and brings beauty and colour to daily routine!
ATHENIAN BALCONY METAMORPHOSIS BY PROLAT!
A balcony with a view of the Acropolis, one of the most beautiful and famous historical monuments in the world, is by definition privileged. With the right materials, however, it can be literally turned into a little private oasis of peace and tranquility, a tasteful and practical extension of the flat that allows you to relax and daydream enjoying from above an uninterrupted view of Athens, the city that never sleeps. The product chosen by PROLAT for coating this balcony floor was Quartz Mosaic, which is ideal for outdoor areas such as terraces, balconies, garden walkways, staircases etc. It is a particularly hard-wearing anti-slip material that doesn’t need any joints, therefore it is quite easy to clean. Quartz Mosaic, one of the most popular products of PROLAT, possesses great elasticity due to the polyurethane resin that it contains and is not affected by small capillary cracks in the substrate. Moreover, it is available in a rich variety of colors thanks to the different colorations of natural quartz stone, which, precisely because it is natural, does not fade if exposed to sunlight; the floor remains unaffected even by the most adverse weather conditions and requires no maintenance. Like all solutions proposed by PROLAT, Quartz Mosaic combines the full spectrum of a top quality product’s practical properties with a really perfect aesthetic result. The pictures prove it beyond any doubt.
PROLAT GOES TO SPETSES!
In seaside areas, both in private residences and in professional premises, the construction materials chosen must ensure not only a visually attractive final result but mainly high resistance to sunlight, all sorts of adverse weather conditions and humidity. This was one of the reasons why PROLAT suggested a specific solution for all the exterior floor surfaces of a modern all-day coffee bar literally on the waves, Cielo Mar on the picturesque island of Spetses: its Quartz Mosaic. It is an anti-slip material suitable for floor coating mainly in outdoor areas, especially if they are subject to frequent and heavy use. PROLAT guarantees that Quartz Mosaic possesses outstanding mechanical strength and great elasticity thanks to the polyurethane resin that it contains, and is very easy to clean with ordinary household chemicals as it has no joints. Moreover, thanks to its natural quartz stone, it is available in a wide variety of colours. From this rich colour palette, PROLAT selected colour QΜ65, a mild earthy shade that blends harmoniously with the natural environment and contrasts beautifully with the blue sea. Lastly, as Quartz Mosaic contains natural quartz stone, it does not fade if exposed to sunlight and PROLAT assures that it remains unaltered in any weather conditions with no need for maintenance. A particularly practical and tasteful material for special works of the highest standards!
PROLAT GOES TO CULTIVOS!
Color, as we all know, is what gives life both to private and professional places and creates atmosphere, as it directly influences not only mood but also the image we wish to show to the others, either supporting or undermining it. This is why the choice of the right color is so important. Choosing the right paint is equally important, given that, apart from quality, we should also take into account factors such as durability, convenience, the aesthetic dimension, and of course price. PROLAT guarantees that its natural paint with kourasani, LavaPaint, performs excellently in all these areas. It is an outstanding product, suitable for exterior and interior walls, as in the case of the shop shown in the picture, one of the Cultivos Coffee chain shops, where the objective was to create a warm and friendly environment that would be pleasant and relaxing for customers. The aim was evidently achieved: PROLAT applied LavaPaint to the walls of the popular espresso & brew bar in one of its many attractive color shades (LP12, LP36, LP74). In contrast to the ordinary paints in the market, LavaPaint offers a unique natural sense thanks to its slightly coarse texture. If we add all its practical advantages to aesthetic originality and excellence, as it may be used both in new works and in restorations, transforming existing walls into monolithic waterproof surfaces, it is clear that it is an ideal solution for all kinds of walls and interior vertical surfaces in public or private spaces. It should finally be noted that LavaPaint is also available as a finishing render in exterior thermal insulation systems. Let’s give some color to everyday life then… PROLAT knows the way!
