With the aim of accommodating a cosy space, and characterised by a modern fresh appearance, Par-ker® Oxford Castaño ceramic parquet by Porcelanosa has been selected as the general flooring as part of the new facilities. A material with a warm appearance, and with simple maintenance and easy-to-clean properties, it offers the resistance of porcelain tiles when the levels of pedestrian traffic are high, such as a shopping premises similar to this one.

With regard to the equipping of the bathroom, ceramic washbasins (Neox collection) by Noken have been installed. Defined by a modern design of evocative lines that seems to be moulded in order to embrace the countertop they are placed on.
