Revamping the aesthetics of a hospital by combining functionality and beauty means choosing the right materials for the heavy traffic to which this type of building is subjected to. In the case of the Medipol Bahçelievler Hospital in Istanbul, Dekton was the solution to give a fresh look to its lobby and cafeteria while guaranteeing that the surfaces will stand the test of time.

‘The materials used to clad the lobby floor had to be highly resistant to all types of stains due to the heavy traffic in the hospital building,’ says Medipol Hospital Group, which owns the design rights. Cosentino’s advice helped to ensure that the refurbishment was carried out quickly, as required by the investor. ‘Cosentino also provided special training in fabrication and installation to masonry companies and subcontractors who had not previously worked with Dekton,’ they explain.

A hard-wearing cream floor

Dekton Sasea was chosen for the entire hospital lobby area. ‘This cream colour was a perfect match for the metal and wood features of the space,’ they say. Large slabs were chosen to minimise joints and create a sense of continuity throughout the lobby, reception and lifts.

Due to its low porosity, Dekton lends itself perfectly to this type of application, as it is resistant to stains and scratches. Moreover, it is a very hygienic and easy to clean surface, so it stays looking as good as new even in high-traffic buildings, such as a hospital.

Stylish touch for the cafeteria

Hospital cafeterias are probably the busiest hospitality venues in a city like Istanbul. In this case, Dekton was also used for the worktops and walls of this space which is visited by hundreds of people every day. In the cafeteria bar, the colour Kelya takes centre stage. Inspired by dark marble with light veins, it brings a touch of refinement to the space.

In keeping with this, the deep Eter colour, with its black and grey shades, elegantly adorns the columns. In contrast, Kairos, a colour inspired by statuary marble, has been used for the interior of the bar, with a bright white background and elegant grey veining.
