The innovative ultra-compact surface, Dekton® by Cosentino has been selected for the exterior façade of the luxury, five-star Le Meridien Hotel in Taipei, Taiwan. Situated in Yilan county, the beautiful resort offers guests an exclusive experience, boasting outstanding avant-garde architecture, high-quality rooms and professional services. The revolutionary surface plays a significant role in the hotel’s design, due to the impressive 3,800m2 of Dekton® used for the external structure.
Dekton® Aura Façade
Dekton® Keyla Façade
Aiming to reflect the nature of the hotel’s surroundings within its design, owners, Trans Globe were immediately drawn to the striking aesthetic of Dekton® Aura because of its natural marble look and delicate veining. Providing unwavering consistency, Dekton® Aura is unique in that its design can be seamlessly continued between slabs thanks to its bookmatching functionality. From its Natural Collection, Dekton® Keyla was also chosen for part of the façade in order to contrast and complement due to its warm rich and intense hue.
Combining practicality with elegance, Dekton® boasts a high resistance to UV rays, heat and thermal shock. Manufactured in large-format slabs (up to 320cm x 144cm) and available in a range of thicknesses, its low porosity and highly adaptable qualities make it perfect for use on both indoor and outdoor applications such as façades, wall cladding and high traffic areas such as flooring and stairs.
