Taman Permata, in Singapore, is a very unique place located a stone’s throw from the city centre and, at the same time, facing the Windsor Nature Park, more specifically, opposite the MacRitchie Reservoir, a huge lake just a few minutes’ walk away.

The Kyoob Architects team was therefore aware that the façade design project for a residential villa in Taman Permata would be exposed to difficult weather conditions.

“As the project site is on the edge of the reservoir area, we were concerned that the constant high humidity would wear down the exterior surfaces”, explains the studio. “Furthermore, the owners wanted to take care of the cleaning themselves, as they are not used to having help for this task. We therefore needed materials that were practical, durable and easy to maintain, both indoors and outdoors”, they further say.

Dekton Bromo for a dark, textured finish with hard-wearing properties

In addition to these two requirements, the material to be used had to be dark. “We were considering dark coloured materials for the façade cladding, such as stone, charred timber, textured paint, mineral paint… But then we came up with Dekton Bromo, which has the natural effect of black, slate-like stone and does not look flat”, say the architects.

Among the many features that attracted the professionals was the fact that Dekton, unlike natural stone, is a non-porous material, which makes it easier to maintain. They were also attracted by its maximum thickness of 12 mm, which is much thinner and lighter than stone and, therefore, easier to install. “It is also UV-resistant, which makes it suitable for use on the east-facing front façade”, they say.

After making sure that Dekton could meet all their requirements, they chose another Dekton surface to finish off the pitched roof. Specifically, they chose Soke, a colour inspired by classic grey cement. “We like the fact that it is stain-resistant and more durable than the original concrete finish”, the studio says.

Sensa Black Beauty, the star of the kitchen

Once the façade was decided, the project managers continued their research into Cosentino’s materials. “We are pleased that the Dekton series has so many colours, patterns and textures from which to choose. In addition to Dekton surfaces, we loved the look and feel of Sensa Black Beauty from the very beginning, and the dry kitchen was designed around an island with a 3-metre worktop in this material. It can be said that we are especially fond of dark colours”, the studio says.

“Sensa offers a wide range of stain-resistant, protected natural stone well suited for the functional kitchen island, which is also the hub for entertainment. There is no need to worry about placing hot pans directly on its surface or stains from accidental spills; it is another low-maintenance surface for which we are very grateful”, the studio explains.

Matt finish Dekton Entzo, the perfect replacement for marble in the bathroom

Another colour Kyoob Architects fell in love with was Dekton Entzo with a matt finish, which turned out to be the perfect replacement for the matt finish statuario marble and volakas marble originally intended for the bathroom cladding.

“In order to optimise the Dekton slabs, we used the same stone cutting process as with marble. As Dekton slabs are thinner and lighter, the process resulted in larger pieces that could be safely handled and fitted. We are very satisfied with the large slabs, which allow for fewer joints. As a result, it is very easy to clean”, the studio concludes.

However, it is its interior spaces featuring the finest and most precious finishes where the luxury of this development shines at its best. For this reason, from the very first phase of the project which included 284 high-end flats, Cosentino products have been a must-have.

“From kitchen worktops and vanities to wood-look drawer fronts and shower and bathroom claddings, Dekton stands out in every flat”, explains Cosentino South Africa. “After meeting with the architect, providing several samples and making a mockup of the show flat, it was decided to use Dekton in thicknesses of 4, 8, 12 and 20 mm”, they further say.

In the words of its developers, Stein City is a “residential city”, a high-end development spread over eight square kilometres of lush green areas in Johannesburg. Among its many luxurious amenities are its golf course (designed by the renowned Nicklaus Design firm), its heliport, its equestrian facility, its excellent school and its 300 square metre lagoon.

Dekton: one material, endless applications

Indeed, there are not many projects that showcase the limitless versatility of the ultra-compact Dekton by Cosentino surface like this one does. “Because of its resistance to scratches, stains, heat, freezing and thawing, its stability, its availability in large format slabs (which means fewer joints) and its low maintenance, Dekton was the ideal choice”, explains the team of Cosentino South Africa, who teamed up with SCAD Architects, who were in charge of the project.

Thus, the kitchen worktop features 12 mm Dekton Natura slabs, a surface that replicates the quintessential style of marble with a soft grey veining and a glass-like gloss, achieved thanks to a unique nanotechnology-based treatment. As for its cladding, the material of choice was 8 mm Dekton Kreta, a matt grey shade inspired by traditional cement floors that evokes a sense of serenity and restraint.

Cosentino creates a bespoke colour for the project

For the vanity worktop, the material used was Dekton Glacier, an ultra glossy surface with fine golden veins over a white background. As for the drawer cladding, the material of choice was Valterra, a colour that replicates the patterns of natural wood but with all the advantages of Dekton. In both cases, a 12 mm thickness was chosen, which was also used for the bathtub cladding. Conversely, a bespoke colour called Dekton Greta was created for the shower cladding.

“This project is of great importance to Cosentino South Africa for several reasons. First of all, it is the first major development in the country made entirely of Dekton, specifically, using a large quantity of Dekton Slim (4 mm). Secondly, Dekton was the ideal finish for a multitude of different interior applications thanks to its fantastic features and versatility. Had a different material been used, it would have been limited to certain applications, but not Dekton!”, Cosentino South Africa says finally.

High durability and care for the environment thanks to Dekton, Silestone and Sensa

Common areas to relax in, stunning roof terraces, two swimming pools, barbecue huts, lounges, gym… The second phase of Element 27, the first rental community in Western Australia, has just opened its doors in a luxury setting with every possible amenity.

Element 27 is also a sustainable complex, with charging stations for electric cars, energy-efficient appliances and innovative strategies for water and energy treatment. As a result, it has become Australia’s first carbon neutral flat community.

To obtain the strength that the materials of a rental flat require, the sophistication inherent in this high-end complex and the respect for the environment that Element 27 embodies, the award-winning firm Hillam Architects had it clear: Cosentino surfaces would be their reference product.

“Any Cosentino surface is extremely hard and resistant to stains and marks. This development was built for rental purposes, so the durability of the materials is very important”, explains the studio. And they further say: “Seamless shower walls and trays are a great advantage in terms of maintenance, especially considering Perth’s hard water. At the same time, Cosentino products offer a visually appealing quality”.

In fact, Sentinel, the developer of the complex, always uses materials from the Cosentino brands in their projects: “Sentinel’s overall policy is to use Dekton, Silestone or Sensa by Cosentino for worktops, splashbacks, etc. This helps to maintain consistency between the projects they own and manage, and to ensure a global supply chain”.

Powerful and sophisticated colours

The worktops and fronts in Element 27 feature Cosentino surfaces. Specifically, the material used was Silestone Charcoal Soapstone with a velvety Suede finish. Inspired by the popular soapstone, this tone has a blue-grey finish with strong grey veins, which stands out for its character, depth and movement.

Silestone was also the material of choice for the worktop and front in the laundry area. In this case, Miami White’s warm shade and glossy Polished finish was chosen. In the bathroom, the walls are clad in Dekton Opera, a colour inspired by the elegant Italian Carrara marble thanks to its simple light grey veining that adds depth and character to its creamy white background.

Meanwhile, the shower tray features the Kador Suite model, a rectangular-shaped tray with a contemporary style, for which Silestone Kensho Suede was chosen. Its silky, harmonious grey surface creates environments with an Asian and Zen touch, which makes perfect sense given the decorative aspects of the project.

A rich, textured colour palette inspired by high-end ceramics

“The design of Element 27 responds to the identity of the Fine China precinct, where the complex is located. The rich material palette used for the project conveys the industrial heritage of the site, while blending in with the materiality of the surrounding developments”, says the studio.

In addition, the details of its façade, specially the nuances in its pattern, allude to the subtle variations in texture and colour of this type of ceramic.

For instance, Silestone was used for the walls of the lift and the custom-made desk at the entrance of the building. In this case, the colour chosen was Calypso, a sober and refined tone that adds contrast and depth to bright spaces.

Last but not least, a different Cosentino material was used for the worktop in the barbecue area. The surface chosen was Sensa Black Beauty, an Indian granite with exclusive anti-stain protection. With its black background crossed by white veins reminiscent of the foam of the waves in a wild ocean, this tone is perfectly suited to the richness that Hillam Architects wanted to capture.

An old duplex in Barcelona, with small, dark and chaotic spaces, has been brought back to life thanks to the modern renovation project by GV419 +arquitectura, which stands out for its large, welcoming, open and bright spaces.

To this end, the layout was completely rethought: now located on the ground floor is the living and dining area, with an open plan kitchen. As white is the main colour used throughout the house (in combination with wood and touches of gold), Silestone Cincel Grey was the colour of choice for the kitchen. In the words of the architects, this colour is “reminiscent of a microcement finish, but offers much better performance” and it was used for both the worktop and the splashback.

Indeed, this Silestone finish features a versatile neutral grey shade which balances easily between warm and cool shades. In addition, it stands out for its pleasant Suede finish, which offers a velvety texture and full colour consistency.

But, according to the professionals in charge of the project, in addition to its design, this Cosentino product stands out for its extraordinary properties: it is resistant to scratches, impacts, acids and stains, and offers extra hygiene, making it perfect for a room like the kitchen.

Silestone Glow Suede: high brightness and a unique texture

Also on the ground floor is the children’s bedroom and a small bathroom, as well as two beautiful terraces with panoramic views of Barcelona. Upstairs, meanwhile, there is a wonderful master bedroom with a dressing room, a work area and a large open-plan bathroom with separate toilet and shower cubicles, where Silestone Ethereal Glow Suede stands out.

“Silestone Ethereal Glow Suede has allowed us to deal with all the elements of the bathroom with great precision. This finish was chosen for its luminosity, thus avoiding a dark background for the suite. In addition, it has a very elegant veining and its Suede finish offers a touch that a natural marble surface could never offer”, explains GV419 +arquitectura.

A bespoke washbasin unit made in Silestone

The jewel in the crown is in the centre of the en-suite bathroom area, in the form of a large washbasin unit made entirely in Silestone. The oak drawers and the washbasin taps, with separate spout and mixer “for added visibility and style” round off the unit. This product, which stands out for its elegance, is made of 24-carat brushed gold and belongs to the Ministar collection of the Spanish tap manufacturer Maier.

The shower walls and tray in this bathroom also feature Silestone Ethereal Glow in large format slabs. “The machining process in the workshop made it possible to accurately fit Maier built-in shower taps, in this case with up to five channels for the different functions: hand shower, wall jets, rain, waterfall and spray”, the studio says. Furthermore, the kitchen is also fitted with Maier’s taps; in this case, a pull-out tap with two functions in matt nickel.

Cosentino: end-to-end support

“Once the details of the bathroom were defined, we worked side by side with Cosentino‘s commercial department, which allowed us to check every last detail of the manufacturing process. Cosentino was also commissioned to manufacture the centrepiece of the washbasin unit, achieving an excellent result”, the studio says.

The studio is very satisfied after using the brand’s products: “Cosentino City Barcelona is a great space to work with the client and get to know the wide range of products that the company offers, their technical features and all the installation possibilities, which made it easier to make a quick decision on the materials to be used for this project”, the studio says finally.

“Design, technique, research. These are my key words for each and every one of my projects, which are strongly inspired by the character of the customer and the context”, explains Italian architect Virginia Lorello. These three principles also guided her when she undertook the renovation of a villa in Mariano Comense, which she turned into a modern and functional home.

“The space that required the most thought was the large open-plan area on the ground floor, which includes the entrance, the living room and the kitchen. The particular shape of the space and the need to restore certain functions to it required careful preliminary work, in order to enhance the existing geometries and make the most of the available space”, says Lorello.

Thus, we decided to use the wooden panelling on the walls and doors to convey the journey through the interior of the space and act as a “multimedia wall”. A dropped ceiling further encloses the entrance space and is supported, on the opposite side, by a piece of furniture with a fireplace, opposite the sofa area in the living room.

A wall fireplace with Dekton panelling

The fireplace is clad in Dekton Lunar, a reinterpretation of conventional cement inspired by industrial design with an off-white background that makes it very trendy. “The design of the Lunar slabs fully reflects the personality of the project, which uses mainly desaturated and slightly cool tones, but without losing its cosy character”, says Lorello. Thanks to this, and to the use of large format slabs (cut to size), this element features a homogeneous, magnificent, elegant and very contemporary appearance.

But in addition to its design, the choice of Dekton is also due to the technical characteristics that make it a unique material, such as its high tolerance to fire and heat, which it can withstand without affecting its surface.

Dekton Lunar for the kitchen worktop

“Opposite the living room is an open kitchen which has been designed to be pleasant, practical and suitable for different times of the day”, Lorello further says. Dekton Lunar is also present in the kitchen. Specifically, it has been used on the worktop and the island. As well as creating a visual harmony with the fireplace, the material was chosen for its high resistance to impact, abrasion, stains and scratches.

The bathroom, another room taking advantage of Dekton’s features

The bathroom is the last room in this house in Mariano Comense in which the ultra-compact Dekton surface has been used. In particular, it was used in different thicknesses for the floor, walls and countertop, as it is a material that is completely resistant to water and moisture.

“Harmony and visual continuity are key in projects”, explains Lorello. “In this case, a hard surface resistant to water, heat and corrosive agents was required in three different rooms of the house: bathroom, fireplace and kitchen worktop”, she further says.

“Dekton is a practical, versatile and thin material that has allowed us to solve several major construction problems and that, above all, reflects the ethical and design principles of our studio, which favours natural materials and does not conceal their true nature through imitations”, says the architect.

Joann Kandrac & Kelly Kole, the creative minds behind the Atlanta-based interior design studio Kandrac & Kole Interior Designs, Inc. are experts in all things residential and commercial design. The duo has partnered with Cosentino for many projects in the past and love Silestone for its incredible properties and beauty. For this home in Marietta, GA, their client wanted to create an addition to their residence which included a master bathroom, powder room, large closets and laundry room.

When designing the master bath, the designers wanted it to truly be a space for wellness that exudes luxury and elegance. They achieved just that by pairing Silestone Dor vanity tops with rich brass fixtures and a tiled backsplash. Dor features a silky white backdrop with striking gold veining creating the perfect cohesion with the fixtures and achieving that spa-like sensation they desired.

They also specified Silestone in the color Lyra for the countertops in the laundry room. The color features a wide chromatic range of gray, brown, and beige tones that pair beautifully with the gray cabinetry and allow the unique wallpaper to shine. Additionally, Silestone’s superior technical properties ensure that the beauty of the product will remain untouched through time and use.

Kandrac & Kole love visiting the newly inaugurated Cosentino City Atlanta where they get inspired by the new products and innovations Cosentino has to offer. For this stunning project, they trusted two unique Silestone shades in a suede finish to bring the homeowner’s dream to life!

“We love to create luxurious and spa-like master bathrooms. This stunning Silestone Dor countertop playing off of the brass light fixtures and faucets gave us the exact look we were going for!”

“We were looking for a mix of wood, stone and ceramics to give the house a Mediterranean touch”, say the owners of this modern house in Vera (Almería, Spain). After buying the plot in 2012, it was not until 2021 that this couple with children decided to start building their 250-metre home (plus basement), planning the project requirements together with the architect. They chose the finishes and decoration themselves.

“The house has Dekton everywhere”, they say. “It is a very clean, non-porous material, which is great now that we have a puppy. We don’t have to worry about what might be left behind, as is the case with marble! Besides, we love its wide range of colours”.

Indoor-outdoor connection thanks to a very versatile flooring

All the floors feature Dekton Lunar, a reinterpretation of conventional cement inspired by industrial design with an off-white background that makes it very trendy. The outdoor flooring is also made of the same material, creating an indoor-outdoor continuity which is very much on trend.

The terrace features a combination of Lunar and Soke, a colour also inspired by classic cement flooring with a realistic veining in an attractive range of greys and which was used for the large table and outdoor shower tray. The same colour scheme is used for the swimming pool, clad in Lunar, while its fountain features Soke.

An eye-catching kitchen featuring Dekton Bergen

Inside the house, the elegant kitchen with an island in Dekton Bergen, a colour inspired by natural Portobello stone, stands out. The beauty of its greyish veins, with sculptural pattern on a whitish background with delicate filigree, makes it a trendy design full of character and elegance.  

In addition, the island has an office area also in Dekton. Specifically, the colour chosen was Micron, a dark gradient on a black background. A timeless design reminiscent of the most outstanding microcements on the market. 

Four bathrooms with distinctive character thanks to Dekton

The ultra-compact surface, which is available in an endless range of designs and colours, also plays a major role in the bathrooms. For the hall bathroom they chose Dekton Laos, a dark, weathered colour with a very contemporary soft matt finish.

“We saw this colour in the Almería showroom. It was outdoors and, as we got closer, the indirect light on its surface reminded us of our honeymoon in Vietnam and Cambodia”, says the couple. Following this inspiration, they designed a bathroom with Asian touches.

There are three other bathrooms in the house. The first is next to their son’s bedroom and is clad in Dekton Vera, “in honour of the place where we live”, in the words of the owners. Its cement background makes it a fusion between the natural and the industrial, while its pale veining break with conventional colours and brings an innate delicacy.

For their daughters’ bathroom they chose Dekton Entzo, a flagship colour inspired by Calacatta Gold marble. This colour is well known for the realism and naturalness of the random pattern of its golden veins. 

Last but not least, the couple’s bathroom is clad in Dekton Opera, a colour inspired by fine Italian Carrara marble. In addition, the new Dekton Velvet Texture gives it a velvety finish that is sensational to the touch. 

“We love Cosentino products”, say the owners of this spectacular house. “Recently, we have even used Dekton to clad an aluminium shed near the swimming pool and it has turned out beautifully”.

Silestone gives a lot of character to this luxury villa

Designed by Emre Akoğlu, this house is the definition of luxury: spacious rooms, several floors and a large estate with outdoor areas including a swimming pool. The interior design of the house combines a renovated classic style with an eclectic mix of materials and textures. Among them is Silestone by Cosentino, which has been used for the bed frame and headboard in one of the master bedrooms. In addition to the bed, the designer also chose Silestone to clad the bathroom doors, creating a unified design concept that gives the house a lot of character.

The veining of the fabulous Marquina marble for a bed

The versatility of Silestone allowed the designer to create a bespoke bed. The colour chosen was Eternal Marquina: “it was the product that best captured the deep black effect I was looking for when I designed the bed, with its beautiful contrasting white veins”, explains the designer. Inspired by Spanish black Marquina marble, this colour is so powerful that, when used on the bed, it becomes the highlight of the entire room.

Integrity in design

In combination with the bed frame, the bathroom doors also feature small pieces of the same material. Eternal Marquina adorns the door frames and a small central panel, making access to the bathroom majestic. “The aim was to preserve the integrity of the design, for which we used the same material”, says Emre Akoğlu.

Versatile and long lasting

The properties of the material were among the advantages that led the designer to choose this Silestone colour. “Obviously, the durability of the material was important. In addition, its 12 mm thickness allowed me to create the design I was looking for in these applications with a lightweight material”, he further says. Furthermore, Silestone is a hybrid surface composed of minerals and recycled materials which, thanks to its unique and innovative HybriQ+ technology, requires minimal maintenance and makes it resistant to stains and scratches.

“Obviously, the durability of the material was important. In addition, its 12 mm thickness allowed me to create the design I was looking for in these applications with a lightweight material”.

A comfortable, elegant and private three-storey home

Converting three floors of a residential building into a single family dwelling. This was the project developed by Leal Ribas, a studio based in Curitiba, Paraná (Brazil). The 600-metre space has been completely refurbished to meet the needs of a couple and their two daughters “with a lot of comfort, luxury, privacy and functionality”, in the words of the studio. The aim was “to transform the space into a haven for the family”.

According to the studio, to achieve this they used materials that “have comfort, modernity and technology in their DNA”. “That is why we chose Dekton and Silestone, both from Cosentino”. In fact, the ultra-compact Dekton surface was used for the garden flooring, the swimming pool cladding and all the worktops in the bathrooms, the laundry room and the gourmet kitchen, demonstrating its great versatility. As for Silestone, it was used for some furniture, including the living room table, as well as for the indoor flooring.
