January 15, 2019
3.800m2 of the ultracompact surface Dekton ® by Cosentino has been used in the façade of the hotel MU Jiaoxi (former Le Meridien) in Taiwan.
The hotel Mu Jiaoxi (former Le Meridien), located in Yilan county, is a 5 star luxury hotel which offers a unique experience to its guests, with a beautiful avant-garde architecture, and a wide diversity in quality services and amenities. The building, finalized in July 2017, applies in its façade 3.800m2 of Dekton® by Cosentino ultracompact surface in the colours Aura (1,300m2) and Kelya (2,500m2).
Trans Globe, the owner of the Mu Jiaoxi hotel, fell in love with the aesthetic of Dekton® Aura and its similarity to Carrara marble. Dekton® Kelya was chosen for its perfect contrast with Dekton® Aura, as well as with the façade design as a whole, and for its sophisticated design. The natural character of Dekton®, its advanced technology and easy maintenance were key elements to develop the project.
The advantages and benefits of Dekton® ultracompact applied to the Mu Jiaoxi façade
Dekton® allows a uniform design to be created, making all the walls of the building appear clad in a single covering. Qualities such as its high resistance to ultraviolet rays, its resistance to extreme temperatures, its very good dimensional stability, its colour stability, its resistance to scratching, its low porosity and its high stain and graffiti resistance are essential properties for its use for exterior façades with these characteristics.
Dekton® by Cosentino has ETA 14/0413 (European Technical Assessment) and CE (for ventilated façades in accordance with ETAG 034) certifications that attest to its ideal nature as a cladding for ventilated façades.
