ToHa Ron Arad & Avner Yashar

The TOHA building in Tel Aviv, Israel, is lined with over 28,000 m2 of Dekton® by Cosentino, spread over the facade, the pavement, the elevators, the ceilings and the interior divisions. In the centre of Tel Aviv, the ToHA building was designed by Ron Arad with the local team of Avner Yashar. The ToHa building offers a unique office complex fit out with a public garden, an observation deck, and a restaurant. More than 28,000 square meters of Dekton® by Cosentino clad the ensemble, and appear on the ventilated facades, flooring, elevators, ceilings, and the interior partitions. The Dekton pieces, of 10.000 different dimensions and types, were produced and cut at the Cosentino headquarters in Spain, and then transported by sea to Israel. One of the main strategies in the design of the project was that of reducing the built area at street level to create a large park with the idea of giving the surroundings a public character. The building emerges, therefore, atop two large legs that widen gradually and create a twisting volume. Because of its geometric versatility, Dekton manages to adapt with precision to this formal complexity thanks to its endless range of formats, with

Fermín Vázquez Arquitectos

Desde el viernes 7 de diciembre hasta el 17 de enero, la galería de arquitectura berlinesa Aedes expondrá la obra del estudio b720. Con motivo de su vigésimo aniversario, el estudio dirigido por Fermín Vázquez ha colaborado con la Galería Aedes y Dekton by Cosentino en la exposición Enchanting Traces, un recorrido por su obra reciente. La muestra se organiza en torno a una réplica de los puestos del Mercado dels Encants, el proyecto central de la exposición. Una sucesión de materiales, maquetas y documentos gráficos nos acercan al método proyectual del estudio y a su forma de hacer arquitectura desde la percepción y la reflexión.  En el centro de la instalación se reúnen ahora los restos materiales de la producción de estos 20 años evocando un puesto en el mercado de los Encants Barcelona, proyecto central del discurso expositivo. Alrededor de este “mercado” se han dispuesto sobre paneles plegados, fragmentos de cada uno de los proyectos. Estos soportes han heredado la materialidad de la obra Encants

Dressed in Dekton Valdebebas 127 by Carlos Rubio Carvajal

The pursuit of maximum quality is common to both the exterior and the interior finishes, so in this case too materials such as Silestones or Dekton by Cosentino are chosen for kitchens and bathrooms. The main objective of the project was to make the most of the site’s privileged location by the central park of Valdebebas, an 80-hectare green lung, and ensure that all the apartments would have direct contact with it. Valdebebas 127 concentrates the built mass in two parallel bands, one facing the park, with three towers that go up atop a platform for commercial premises, and another facing the promenade with a continuous block comprised of five lower buildings. The separation between the towers also affords the apartments in the block views of the Guadarrama mountain range as well as the park.  The design of the tower seeks a formal and compositive interplay at the building’s corners, alternating the position of the living room and the terrace to achieve a dynamic zipper effect that gives the complex a distinctive image. The treatment of the large garden areas between the buildings is a particularly important element in the project. The perimeter of the site remains open, offering vi
