PROLAT GOES TO PLAKA!

A renovation in Plaka, the “neighborhood of the gods” just below the sacred rock of the Acropolis, is not a mere construction work but a true ritual as the result has to be in complete harmony with its neoclassical buildings, most of which are listed, retaining the picture of Athens as it was a century ago. Such an important mission requires of course the right materials. PROLAT, with great respect for the colour, character and history of this picturesque part of the Greek capital, rejuvenated the façade and interior walls of this building on Scholiou Street with LavaPaint with Kourasani, the perfect choice when we seek not just a monotonous and indifferent plastic surface but a unique natural one that attracts and pleasantly surprises the eye. The secret lies in its slightly coarse texture that differentiates if from ordinary paints and creates a special sense of naturalness and freshness. Both for exterior and for interior walls of neoclassical buildings PROLAT recommends LavaPaint with Kourasani, which can transform them into monolithic waterproof coloured surfaces. Besides, the product has been approved by all archaeological services. The contribution of PROLAT to the impressive renovation of the above building was not limited to the use of LavaPaint but included one more top quality product, LavaPlaster Cream, which was used in the bathrooms. It is a particularly practical waterproof material in ready paste form that is suitable for floors and walls and ideal for various creative uses and DIY works. LavaPlaster Cream guarantees excellent functionality, high durability and an impeccable aesthetic result – like all the products of PROLAT.

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 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 HALANDRI!

A garden in a built-up urban area is not only a precious source of oxygen but also an oasis of beauty and tranquillity that relaxes you and soothes your soul. It goes without saying then that the use of concrete on its paths would greatly diminish its value and aesthetically harm its natural environment. Here too, however, PROLAT has the solution: its ready-made Stabilized Ceramic Floor, an ecological bioclimatic material suitable for all sorts of outdoor spaces and ideal especially for yards, gardens, pedestrian areas, etc. In the big verdant garden of the villa shown in the photo, which is a creation of PLETHRON CONSTRUCTION Company, PROLAT applied it on all walkways. Stabilized Ceramic Floor owes its beautiful natural colour to the ground tiles, pozzolan Theran earth and the pebbles it contains. It is precisely these ingredients that make it water permeable and, as a result, it absorbs rainwater, so the soil does not dry up. With the choice of Ceramic Floor, PROLAT guarantees a ceramic-earthen final surface that is both “compact” and particularly comfortable for walking. It must also be noted that it is a cold floor that contributes to a pleasant microclimate even when it is very hot. PROLAT recommends Stabilized Ceramic Floor not only for its aesthetic excellence but also because it is the most practical and economical solution in comparison with other types of floors. Another excellent product of PROLAT that satisfies even the most demanding needs and preferences, always respecting customers and the environment.

PROLAT GOES TO KOUKAKI!

In a grey metropolis full of cement like Athens the best you can hope for is to be able to enjoy a peaceful green garden or a balcony with a view. And it is double luck if this view includes one of the most beautiful and famous monuments of the world like the Acropolis. PROLAT was called upon to renovate such a lovely balcony with its most suitable product for floor coating, mainly in outside areas: Quartz Mosaic. One of its greatest advantages is that it can be nicely applied to smooth concrete, common cement mortar and old mosaic floor or tiles that do not need to be removed. PROLAT highly recommends Quartz Mosaic for terraces and balconies like the one in the photo, as it is an anti-slip material that exhibits outstanding mechanical strength and 100% elasticity. Moreover, it needs no joints, therefore it is particularly easy to clean with ordinary household cleaners and wash with a garden hose. Lastly, PROLAT guarantees that Quartz Mosaic does not fade if exposed to sunlight, remains unaltered in any weather conditions and requires no maintenance thanks to its natural quartz stone, to the different colorations of which it owes the wide variety colours it is available in. Today more than ever before the hectic lifestyle and the stressors of living in a big city call for rejuvenating touches of beauty. And PROLAT, once again, is here to give solutions with its recognized high- quality products, which are not only practical and convenient to use but also offer wonderful aesthetic results.

PROLAT GOES TO METROPOLITAN EXPO!

The vital role that colours play in our lives is well known and generally accepted: they add beauty to our homes and workplaces and can literally transform them, they inspire and rejuvenate us or they relax us and calm us down – take your pick! This is why choosing the right colour is even more important when you have to do with places that receive large numbers of visitors on a daily basis and aspire to make them feel comfortable and lift their mood. Luckily, PROLAT, always ready to offer handy and practical ideas, had the ideal solution for this case: LavaPaint with Kourasani, one of its most popular products, a bioclimatic material available in a wide variety of colours that is suitable both for exterior and interior walls. The perfect aesthetic result achieved is evident in the pictures of Refill – Coffee & Snacks canteen in the modern exhibition centre Metropolitan Expo near Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos. The soft, discreet colour shade of LavaPaint that was selected for the walls and the ceiling creates the pleasant, warm and friendly atmosphere required in such a shop, as well as a very special sense of naturalness and freshness thanks to the product’s slightly coarse texture, which is what differentiates it from usual paints. When you seek an original, attractively rugged but natural result as opposed to the monotony of a merely painted surface, PROLAT has the answer: LavaPaint, a top quality product that transforms walls to monolithic colourful surfaces. Here, it has been applied even on a secret door so that it appears to be one with the wall. Moreover, the special composition of LavaPaint guarantees excellent breathability and a waterproof, durable and elastic surface. They say that there is no true beauty without colour. PROLAT endorses that and offers you the perfect solution to change and bring beauty to your everyday life!

PROLAT LOVES BOOKS!

When you cross the door of a bookshop, you enter not just another shop but a truly magical world that offers you endless possibilities through reading: to travel, learn, explore, reflect, dream and – above all – to lose yourself in a book, recharging the batteries of your mind and soul. As Dr. Seuss, the renowned children’s book writer, has beautifully put it, “You can find magic anywhere; all you need is a book”. It is this kind of sweet aura that is radiated by LOGOPEGNIA (WORDPLAY), at 44 Saint Alexander Street, in Palaio Faliro, Athens, an amazing new bookshop created with the inspired renovation of an old one, thus continuing an almost 50-year old tradition. And, since we are talking about inspiration and magic, PROLAT took… its own magic wand and, with its outstanding, top quality products, turned an ordinary shop into a bright, friendly and tasteful place ready to welcome visitors of all ages and satisfy all reading interests. PROLAT used on the floor its new product, LavaPlaster Cream, an excellent, hard-wearing and waterproof material in paste form, available in more than 200 colours and suitable for DIY works as well. PROLAT had a classical, tried and tested solution for the exterior area too: Quartz Mosaic, an anti-slip floor coating material with remarkable mechanical strength and elasticity, also available in a wide variety of colours, which, thanks to the natural quartz stone it contains, does not fade if exposed to sunlight and remains unaltered even in adverse weather conditions with no need for maintenance. Finally, with LavaPaint on the walls, PROLAT ensured an original and highly attractive aesthetic result thanks to its slightly coarse texture that creates an impressive sense of naturalness and freshness. The mild, discreet colours of the materials selected have decisively contributed to the creation of a pleasant, warm and welcoming atmosphere that attracts and relaxes visitors. As Walt Disney once said, “There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates’ loot on Treasure Island”. LOGOPEGNIA bookshop knows it very well and is waiting for you to come and discover all its precious hidden treasures!
