In this project have been used mainly and largely ceramic materials, due to its diversity in terms of formats, finishes and colors, its ease of execution, its versatility both for outdoor uses on deck (waterproofing) and pavements (friction and wear) and as interiors in floors and walls of bathrooms (watertightness) and for being natural products from the earth, mud and sand, which generate natural, calm and comfortable environments.
So there are 3 important elements in which the ceramic has given the appropriate response to the project’s demands: the roof bricks have been used as structural elements in the floors, as a complement to the visible structure of steel beams and joists; the clay tile has been used as an alternative to the flat tile on the roof, due to its versatility to be used both in vertical and horizontal elements, also appearing in the reception wall and as a flooring in the common space at double height of the ground floor; finally, the traditional tile has served to get an open solution of bathroom in the rooms, both in floors and walls and even forming unique craft ceramic sinks.
