PORCELANOSA Grupo Projects: the KRION® mineral compact brings the Four Seasons Hotel in Casablanca to life
Friday May 19th, 2017 · PORCELANOSA Grupo
Done by the prestigious Foster+Partners architecture studio, the PORCELANOSA Grupo is present at the luxurious Four Seasons hotel in Casablanca, Morocco. The leading material, in this case, is the KRION® Solid Surface mineral compact, which brings some of the most important and demanding parts of the project to life.
In this regard, it is possible to find KRION® in the catering area of the luxury hotel, specifically, in its 9101 KRION® Crystal White+ version. In this space, and thanks to the malleability and thermocurving properties of the material, one can distinguish three large pieces without visual joints. The first of them is a wave-like 16m-long bench, with the different curve radius that takes up much of the dining room and goes as far as the corridor. The second of the pieces is the bar counter, C-shaped and 9.5m in length and 4m wide. It is highlighted because of having a shelf on its closed side, where both ice and fresh fish are to be placed. Additionally, and as a partition item, this piece is provided with an impressive column, also manufactured with the acrylic stone, which divides the counter at the back. The third and last of the KRION® pieces is the big oval counter, 10m long and 7m wide, whose spiral shape provides the space with uniqueness and a sinuous cutting-edge character.
The Four Seasons hotel in Casablanca is certainly a complex characterised by its modernity and contemporaneity. KRION® keeps to these aspects , since we are dealing with a highly-versatile mineral material with unique properties. Furthermore, it results in being ideal for the contract spaces and those of high traffic, because of its high resistance and durability.
Four Seasons: a luxury hotel on the coast of Morocco
The Four Seasons is a five-storey hotel with 186 rooms, 29 of which are suites. It is characterised by being a luxury hotel complex, the ideal place for a dream holiday or to stay in when on business trips.

Casablanca, for its part, is the largest city in Morocco, and it is considered to be the economic and commercial heart of the country.
