Sustainable Silestone® and Dekton® Surfaces Specified at Architect Practice, Studio Power

Multi-disciplinary architectural practice, Studio Power has specified Cosentino’s Silestone®  in Arcilla Red from the carbon neutral Sunlit Days collection for a freestanding island and matching flooring at its Salford studio.  Dekton® Eter has also been selected for the kitchen area worksurfaces and splashback.
“We explored various materials during the design process and felt that the warmth, earthiness and calmness of the Arcilla Red Silestone® was perfect for the studio island unit.  We have always aspired to have a sculptural installation and Arcilla Red Silestone® has done just that! Meanwhile, Dekton® Eter has been perfectly combined with the matt charcoal grey kitchen units to achieve a coherent monochromatic backdrop, which acts as a shadow to showcase the Arcilla Red Silestone® installation to its fullest potential,” says Jyh Lee, Architect at Studio Power.
Studio Power specified Silestone® in Arcilla Red for both the kitchen island and flooring.  The island is designed in a 12mm thickness and the flooring, 20mm.  This carbon neutral material is made from 20% recycled materials and is a fully sustainable choice.  Part of the Sunlit Days collection, it’s a deep and earthy red that adds warmth and a statement look to the open-plan space. A hybrid surface of premium minerals, quartz and recycled materials, Silestone® ’s innovative HybriQ+ technology ensures it is also low maintenance with a high resistance to scratches and stains, making it the perfect choice for this busy working studio.
Dekton® Eter in a 12mm thickness was then selected for the kitchen area worksurfaces with an 8mm thickness for the splashbacks.  Fabricated by Bolton-based Signature Splashbacks, this innovative ultracompact surface is made from a mix of porcelain, glass and quartz.  It’s extremely scratch resistant, stain resistant, fire and heat resistant with high strength and versatility in its application.  Along with residential projects of any size, whether kitchen or bathroom worktops and wall cladding, it can also be used for residential building facades, flooring, furniture and shower trays.
Just like Silestone® ’s Sunlit Days collection, Dekton® is also carbon neutral and combines sustainability with safety and energy efficiency.  Dekton® has LEED and BREEAM certifications in environmental and sustainable design along with the highest classification in fire resistance.  Part of Dekton®’s Natural collection, Eter is a dramatic black and grey-toned surface material with a contemporary look ideal for Studio Power’s kitchen area.
