PROLAT GOES TO AEGINA!
The secret for a successful renovation is to create something original, attractive and functional building upon whatever tasteful and symbolical is worth keeping and marrying old and new elements. Panagakis Crepe Café in beautiful Aegina, continuing a 150-year family tradition as an eating establishment, keeps pleasing both the palate and the eye of its loyal customers through its recently renovated shop. PROLAT played a leading part in the café’s new image by choosing LavaPaint Finishing Render with Kourasani for all the walls. LavaPaint always makes a difference because, contrary to ordinary paints that can offer nothing more than an indifferent plastic surface, it can guarantee a special, refreshingly rough natural feeling with its slightly coarse texture and discreet, restful colours. Moreover, LavaPaint is suitable both for interior and exterior walls and perfectly waterproof. For the bathrooms, PROLAT chose LavaPlaster, a tried, tested and well known material that creates monolithic and completely waterproof surfaces. LavaPlaster is available in more than 150 lovely shades and, thanks to the use of a special varnish, it is fully protected against staining by pollutants, oils, etc. PROLAT products, such as LavaPaint and LavaPlaster, combine excellent durability, natural beauty, practical advantages and competitive prices, which makes them an ideal solution both for new works and for all sorts of renovations. Because quality is always the key.
PROLAT GOES TO FLISVOS MARINA!
Any professional place destined either for work or for public reception, besides being primarily safe, of course, should ideally be spacious, and have good lighting (preferably natural), an ergonomic layout and a tasteful appearance. PROLAT can significantly contribute to at least two of the above four features with one of its most popular products, LavaPlaster. These offices in Flisvos Marina, designed by the architects Constantina Dela and Lena Chalkiopoulou and constructed by Monogram, are an excellent example that clearly shows some of the advantages of this particularly practical and clever material. PROLAT applied LavaPlaster to all floors, creating monolithic, smooth and completely jointless surfaces only 4mm thick that make the space look noticeably larger and lighter. It is a reinforced and perfectly waterproof material suitable also for staircases, countertops, bathrooms, etc. It is available in more than 150 colours that cover all demands and preferences. Finally, it is worth noting that the use of a special varnish ensures full protection of the surface against all kinds of staining. LavaPlaster is, therefore, a versatile quality product absolutely worthy of its reputation that bears the signature of PROLAT.
PROLAT GOES TO AGHIOS DIMITRIOS!
What role does workplace play in work performance? A most important one, according to the findings of all relevant research. It has indeed been proved that a pleasant, safe and functional work environment has a positive effect on personnel, creating feelings of wellbeing and eagerness for action that contribute decisively to productivity increase and job satisfaction. The same goes for appropriate colour selection, of course. The layout and decoration of this spacious and sunny office in Aghios Dimitrios, Athens, was based on this rationale, making good use of one of the highest quality products of PROLAT suitable for interior floor coating: LavaMosaic. Given that LavaMosaic is an anti-slip material that exhibits outstanding mechanical strength, PROLAT unreservedly recommends it for all kinds of professional places. Moreover, its natural beauty and the restful, discreet colours in which it is available offer a particularly tasteful final effect and the uninterrupted, joint-free surface makes the space look larger and accents the modern decoration. Finally, PROLAT guarantees that, thanks to a special varnish, LavaMosaic is easily cleaned and does not stain, which makes it the most practical and reliable solution even for conditions of continuous and hard use. What else could one expect from a floor coating material?
PROLAT GOES TO BENETTON!
It is common knowledge that the exterior of a shop has a direct influence on consumers’ crucial first crucial impression and, by extension, on their desire to visit it and their purchase intention. Just like a beautiful cover that tempts you to buy a book and explore its content. Benetton is a company that needs no introduction. It does not rest on the laurels of brand recognition, however, and always makes sure its shops aesthetically reflect the high quality of its products. This is the case with the company shop in Psychico, Athens, where the cooperation between Benetton and PROLAT has led to a particularly successful and attractive result. The product used on the broader exterior space around the shop entrance was Quartz Mosaic, which is ideal for floor coating mainly in outdoor areas. PROLAT has many reasons to be proud of its Quartz Mosaic: it is an anti-slip material that exhibits remarkable mechanical strength, does not need joints and is very easy to clean. Furthermore, it is available in a rich variety of colours thanks to the different colourations of the natural quartz stone, which also ensures a beautiful appearance and has an additional advantage: it does not fade if exposed to sunlight. This is why PROLAT can reliably guarantee that Quartz Mosaic remains unaltered in any weather conditions and requires no maintenance, which therefore makes it the best choice for exterior floor coating of all types and for any use.
PROLAT GOES TO MENIDI!
It’s nice to stand out through constant improvement efforts. This is what really matters in all aspects of life: never settle for what you find, but, using all your knowledge, skill and imagination, always try to make it even better. PROLAT, for instance, going beyond ordinary paints, has created a product which, in addition to its practical advantages, can radically change the external appearance of a building, attracting glances, interest and, consequently, in the case of shops, new customers. LavaPaint, a natural paint with kourasani developed by PROLAT, does not offer a monotonously uniform plastic surface, as most paints do; its slightly coarse texture guarantees an original result, creating a refreshing sense of naturalness. MoreShop, a women’s wear boutique in Menidi, Attica, is a characteristic example. One glance is enough to realize how clearly it stands out, like a little oasis of tastefulness in the built environment of a densely populated urban district. The aesthetic dimension of the final result, however, is not the only reason why PROLAT is so proud of the specific product: LavaPaint is a coloured spatula-applied finishing render suitable both for new works and for renovations involving either interior or exterior walls, which offers excellent waterproof protection. Finally, it is worth noting that LavaPaint, one of the most popular products of PROLAT, is also available as a finishing render in exterior thermal insulation systems for building façades. It’s nice to stand out. And so simple, after all.
PROLAT GOES TO PETROUPOLI!
What can make a difference and turn one of the many identical impersonal buildings of a big city into a really interesting one? PROLAT has the answer: the right materials; not just quality materials but special and unique ones that can give colour, life and character to any residence or workplace, such as Arte de Pelo hairdresser’s in Petroupoli, Athens. LavaPaint, for instance, the finishing render that PROLAT applied to the façade and walls of the two-storey building, is not an ordinary paint that can offer nothing but a merely painted surface; its slightly coarse texture creates a rugged sense of naturalness surprisingly appealing to the eye. As in every shop, the material needed for interior floors should be practical, hard-wearing and easy to clean, but at the same time attractive to clients too. Once again, PROLAT had the solution: LavaMosaic is an anti-slip floor coating with outstanding mechanical strength and no joints and, thanks to a special varnish, it never stains. Furthermore, it is distinguished for its natural beauty. A special touch of freshness and elegance is added to the ergonomically simple and modernly decorated interior with the use of Betocore for mirror stands and partitions. With Betocore, one of the most innovative and versatile products of PROLAT, you can create original and tasteful objects and furniture that stand out thanks to their concrete-like appearance and texture. Finally, the balcony was coated with Quartz Mosaic, another product of PROLAT which combines all the aesthetic advantages of natural quartz stone in addition to the essential qualities that any exterior floor coating material should exhibit (anti-slip properties, ease of cleaning, wear resistance and resistance to sunlight and all weather conditions). Behind every beautiful and functional place, apart from architectural inspiration and passion for decoration, there is usually another open secret: the choice of the appropriate materials that will best serve its purpose and show its image to advantage.
PROLAT GOES TO KAVOURI!
Simple, austere lines, clean shapes, open, light spaces and jointless, uninterrupted surfaces that reflect sunlight and show the calming colours to advantage create a restful, friendly and pleasant environment that allows us to relax and enjoy our personal and family moments after a stressful, tiring day. This is the architectural and decorative style adopted by this private residence in Kavouri, Athens, where modern and classical elements blend harmoniously, offering tranquillity, spaciousness and functionality. The contribution of PROLAT to the remarkably tasteful final result was once again decisive: the material used on stairs and floors was Lavaplaster, a well-known reinforced and perfectly waterproof product distinguished for its natural beauty. For exterior floors and balconies, PROLAT chose Quartz Mosaic, a particularly practical anti-slip material with extraordinary mechanical strength, which, thanks to the natural quartz stone contained, does not fade if exposed to sunlight, remains unaltered in time and unaffected by adverse weather conditions and does not require maintenance. Finally, to all interior walls PROLAT applied LavaPaint, which, in contrast to ordinary paints, guarantees a unique sense of freshness and naturalness thanks to its slightly coarse texture. Conclusion: the choice of suitable quality materials may convert a house into the home of our dreams.
PROLAT GOES TO KAMINIA!
Our home is neither a mere shelter from everyday stress nor just the place where we live, rest and recharge our batteries, but also a broader mirror of ourselves. Naturally, it directly influences our mood and mental health. This is why it is often not just desirable but absolutely necessary to improve, change and renovate our personal environment so as to feel rejuvenated and full of new positive energy and zest for life. In such renovations, colour choices play a vital role. The pictures prove beyond any doubt that any ordinary residence, regardless of size and at a very low cost, may be literally transformed into your dream home in a couple of days and only with minor interventions. PROLAT added its own decisive touches to the renovation of the specific house in Kaminia, Athens, applying LavaPaint to the bedroom and sitting room walls and to the fireplace overmantel. In contrast to usual paints that give a monotonously uniform plastic surface, LavaPaint, one of the most popular products of PROLAT, creates a unique sense of naturalness and freshness thanks to its slightly coarse texture. So, if you wish to transform existing walls into monolithic, waterproof, coloured surfaces and have an aesthetic result that is bound to satisfy even the most demanding tastes, LavaPaint by PROLAT is the ideal solution. Quickly, easily and economically!
PROLAT GOES TO NEOS VOUTZAS!
At the coastal resort of Neos Voutzas, amphitheatrically built on a slope with uninterrupted views over the South Euboean Gulf, this austere yet elegant country house with clean lines and pale, restful colours blends harmoniously with the natural environment and offers a marvellous chance for quality living and relaxation just a stone’s throw from the Greek capital. PROLAT, with its rich experience and excellent products, has contributed decisively to the creation of a tasteful and absolutely functional residence. The product used on exterior stairs and floors and around the swimming pool was Quartz Mosaic, a particularly wear-resistant and anti-slip material made by mixing natural quartz stone and resins that does not require maintenance. To the exterior walls of the house PROLAT has applied its natural paint, which is waterproof and its beautiful appearance remains unaltered over time. Finally, for the interior floors and the bathrooms, PROLAT has chosen Lavaplaster. The overall final result fully covers the whole spectrum of everyday life needs and meets even the most demanding aesthetic expectations.
PROLAT GOES TO OLOF PALME PARK!
In densely populated cities, parks do not only serve as green lungs that replenish oxygen in the atmosphere but are also valuable oases of beauty amid the urban grey and multifunctional recreation centres hosting all sorts of sports and cultural activities. A perfect example is Olof Palme Park in Thessaloniki, a completely renovated historical green area specially configured so as to respond to the inhabitants and visitors’ needs. Apart from various improvements and additions, today the park offers walking, running and biking paths for users of all ages, including people with limited mobility. The ceramic floor of PROLAT is a natural, bioclimatic material ideal for use by pedestrians, athletes, toddlers, people in wheelchairs, etc. PROLAT floor, as Renzo Piano’s team named it after our cooperation at the park of Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, is characterized by remarkable natural beauty. Furthermore, it absorbs rain waters, thus preventing the underground from drying up.
