PORCELANOSA Grupo Projects: Exclusivity and experience in the facade of Carlos Guinot’s Jewellery Shop
Wednesday July 12th, 2017 · PORCELANOSA Grupo
In the Old City of Castellon, very close to the symbolic “puerta del sol”, there is one of the most emblematic jeweller’s in the city, “Carlos Guinot Joyería“. Since 1956, its committed and hard-working jewellers have offered a professional, discreet and quality service to each of their clients. Three generations paying tribute to precious stones and the most exclusive jewels have turned them into a leading and respected Jeweller’s in the luxury market sector.
Last year, and done through the Andres Benet architecture studio, the jeweller’s went through a big makeover in order to provide a more sophisticated and cutting-edge style to the experience and knowledge that fully endorses them. The refurbishment had the collaboration from the PORCELANOSA Grupo, both in the materials contribution for the facade and in its assembly through its specialised firm in building and assembly systems, Butech.
The versatility and elegance of the KRION® Solid Surface
One of the spaces that took on more significance in the project was the jewellery shop facade, since this required a modern and sumptuous aesthetic to attract customers, giving the leading role to the jewellery on show, as well as being adapted to all kinds of temperatures and external conditions.
Similarly, the facade should ensure the security of the jewellery shop and any possible vandalism. Therefore, the KRION® Solid Surface compact mineral in the 6501 CREAM finish was opted for, and the K-FIX facade anchoring system from the Butech group company. KRION® is a cutting-edge material whose solid surface is characterized by its durability, ease of repair, low maintenance and easy cleaning.
Its high natural mineral content and low level in resins, provides the material with great versatility and strength, being capable of adapting to all types of projects. In this case, it allows for illuminated signs to be included on the façade, along with safeguarding its inalterability over time.
As if it were a piece of jewellery, the content, lightness and jointless finish by KRION® has made creating a facade with an infinite aspect possible, one which most certainly catches everyone’s eye.
