Dekton: a durable material for a glued façade

Located in the coastal town of Vera (Almería) and featuring a modern design and top quality materials is the newly built home of a prominent local builder. For the indoor and outdoor spaces of his new home, the builder has relied on Cosentino’s materials, as he usually does for his professional projects. 

For the unique glued façade of this house, 520 m2 of Dekton surfaces were used. Specifically, the colour chosen was Blanc Concrete, an aged white with small spots and veins in light grey and beige that give the façade a flawless appearance. Glued façade systems provide building claddings with excellent visual results and lower maintenance compared to other finishes. This system allows the ultra-compact surface by Cosentino to be glued directly to the exterior plaster of the building.

Dekton is an ultra-compact material with unique properties in terms of versatility and resistance. In fact, it can withstand all types of weather conditions while maintaining its appearance and insulating properties throughout its entire lifespan. Even when exposed to the constant and powerful sunlight typical of Almería!

A ventilated façade also by Dekton

A ventilated façade is a façade construction system that has an air gap between the cladding and the insulation, which eliminates thermal bridges and condensation problems. This provides excellent thermal performance and prevents moisture.

This house in Vera combines a glued façade system with a ventilated façade system, which extends over 175 m2. Dekton was the material of choice for both types of façade systems. As for the colours, Blanc Concrete and Fossil -a dark grey background crossed by very natural veins and spots- were chosen. Its finish gives the material an aged and old look typical of fossilised pieces, creating a modern contrast full of character when combined with Dekton Blanc Concrete.
