Dekton by Cosentino shines in this mixed-use building in downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan. Located on Water Street, the commercial portion of the development is known as The Warner Building while the residential wing is named 180 E. Water Street. This project is the true definition of cross-disciplinary collaboration, where various teams across Cosentino worked hand-in-hand with the architecture firm Tower Pinkster Titus Associates Inc., and contractor Riverside Group to achieve the perfect ventilated facade.

Riverside Group had worked with Dekton in the past and understood its performance and technical capabilities. The original material selected for the facade was travertine natural stone, but Riverside introduced Dekton to the architect, and the rest was history. The Cosentino team shared large samples of Dekton Sterling, a unique gray-ish beige tone, as well as all technical data sheets, product and performance declarations and warranty, which cemented the architect’s decision.

This facade is unlike any other, featuring large panels with mitred edges installed in complex three-dimensional angles on beams and column joints. In order to flawlessly execute this complex design requirement, the Cosentino factory in Spain created different mockups to ensure a perfect fit. All parties were trained by Cosentino’s quality team, which secured a flawless Dekton installation.

The sleek shade of Dekton Sterling not only looks beautiful and modern today, but will stay looking that way for years to come. Dekton’s stain and scratch resistant properties coupled with maintenance-free durability and resistance to extreme weather patterns are just what this busy building needs.

“The panels and install look great and recognition from the architect and owner has been sent our way already.”
