Exclusive flats with a beautifully designed facade in Málaga

In a privileged location in Málaga, close to the residential area of El Limonar, is this exclusive development of flats for sale called Eleven. The project is located in a strategic enclave, with all kinds of services in the vicinity and well connected to the city’s landmarks. Its proximity to the sea, just a few metres from La Malagueta Beach, and to the old town, can be seen in the architectural design by the architects of DTR_studio from its very facade.

The white colour, the pure, horizontal lines and the polished finishes of the facade, in which Dekton plays a prominent role, make this design a blend of the contemporary and the reminiscences of Mediterranean tradition.

A material that blends in with its surroundings

‘The polished material mirrors the image of the surrounding trees,’ say the architects, referring to the area where Dekton Blaze surface was installed, a greyish tone with metallic tints which, in its glossy finish, enhances the shine and elegantly reflects the sunlight and the context. The landscaped areas of the project extend into the building. This is not the only colour used on the facade of this development, as the architects made the most of the vast array of Dekton finishes to create a unique combination of different colours, all in neutral shades.

Dekton Blaze was complemented by other colours such as Dekton Kovic, with its neutral grey base tone and natural veining; Dekton Eter, with its dark granite structure and contemporary feel; and Dekton Sasea, an elegant and refined cream shade.

Large format and adhesive system

The wide range of options, as well as the large format of the slabs and the technical features of the material (such as strength and durability), were the reasons why Dekton was chosen for this ventilated facade. In this case, 4 and 8 mm thick Dekton slabs were used, weighing 10 and 20 kg/m2 respectively, which, due to their lightness, facilitate their handling and installation on site.

A seamless cladding without visible fixings, which is what the architect wanted in his design, was achieved with an adhesive system, which includes the pre-treatment and priming of the profile and the Dekton slab, a double-sided tape and a bead of adhesive. Visible safety clips in a similar colour to the Dekton slab were also fitted as additional fixings. This system allows the planner to freely place the pieces in any format and layout. Installation must be carried out by a qualified fitter and in accordance with the supplier’s temperature control instructions at the time of installation.
