November 6, 2020
Cosentino is delighted to present the 17th issue of its magazine: C – Architecture & Everything Else. This magazine shares insights on leading innovations, designs and projects that contribute towards a more sustainable and beautiful world, thus collaborating with the world of architecture from the field of communication.
The cover of C 17 features a spectacular view of the façade of the Kap West office building in Munich, designed by Wiel Arets Architects, where more than 12,600 m2 of Dekton by Cosentino were used to create a uniform façade. Further details of the project can be found in the Cosentino section of the magazine. The façade was a challenging construction project. Also in the Cosentino section, you will find an extensive article on a private project located in Sa Talaia, in the west of Ibiza. It is Villa Omnia, a house designed by Jano Blanco, where straight lines and large formats are perfectly combined with minimalism, nature and art. Both Dekton and Silestone surfaces are part of this masterpiece.
In the Architecture section, C 17 shows the new co-working space that the Madrid-based architecture studio Selgascano has built in Hollywood. A complex of sixty oval pavilions, immersed in a lush garden designed to celebrate outdoor life.
Arts hosts the photography series “Iran’s New Landscape”, by Manuel Álvarez Diestro, in which the buildings on the outskirts of Tehran evoke apocalyptic landscapes and pose a reflection on the growth of the urban population. A superb aesthetic and critical look through the lens of a camera.
The Style section is dedicated to Irina Dzhus, a Ukrainian designer and stylist, who launched her clothing brand DZHUS back in 2010. The internationally renowned brand is characterized by its vanguardism, functionality, innovation and ethical commitment against animal cruelty.
In Menorca, a house brings new life to a former stone quarry. We are talking about Ca’n Terra, a visual and natural delight that reinvents the use of an excavated space. Ensamble Studio makes use of technology to digitally shape the interior of the cavern and achieve high structural accuracy. As the studio says, “history becomes architecture”. This article is part of the Interior section of C 17, which also includes the refurbishment project of a vaulted house located in Villanueva de la Serena, Badajoz. In the project, developed by Jose María Sánchez, the spatiality achieved stands out, thanks to its structural audacity.
In Interview, critic Vladimir Belogolovsky and architect Gong Dong analyse the evolution of architecture since the Modern Movement and the impact it has had in the East and West, drawing parallels between China and Spain. Finally, C 17 travels to Barcelona where it covers some of its main architectural highlights. And this is the place where the new Cosentino City Barcelona will be opening its doors in the coming weeks.
