Inspired by the Calacatta marble, the Atlantis Polished model by Arklam hoards a project carried out by Adrihosan and the Tres60 architecture studio in a house in the Albufera of Valencia (Spain)

Marble floor and wall tiles have become a trend-setting decorative resource

In this context, white marbles, with their rich variety of nuances, are the protagonists of all types of spaces, both new construction and refurbishment. This is an option that occupies a preferential place in the selections of interior designers, decorators and architects and that means reinterpreting a classic to become a product of maximum actuality.

And, within the range of white marbles, without a doubt, one of the most appreciated is the Calacatta marble, which is precisely the one that has inspired one of Arklam’s most outstanding models: Atlantis Polished, which stands out not only for its spectacular design, but also for its versatility to cover all types of surfaces, as is evident in one of the latest projects carried out by Adrihosan in collaboration with the design and architecture studio Tres60, consisting of the design and construction of a single-family home located in the Albufera area of Valencia (Spain). With a thickness of 6 mm and formats 1000×3000 and 1500×2600, Atlantis Polished covers different rooms of this house of two-story house. Thus, this model of large-format sintered massis the protagonist in the living room kitchen, where it has been placed on floors and walls. In addition, the countertop has been installed in the 12 mm version, in 1500×3200 format, belonging to the Arklam Countertops range, whose properties are especially suitable for this type of surface, which requires maximum resistance and hygiene, along with easy cleaning and minimum maintenance. Atlantis Polished has also been applied in the washing room and engine room next to the kitchen, as well as in the entrance area to the home, also covering the steps of the staircase leading to the upper floor.

“Atlantis (Arklam) provides all the technical features of large format sintered mass, among which resistance and durability must be taken into account”

Durable beauty

The choice of Atlantis Polished for this residential project responds to several factors. According to Miguel Ángel Pérez Mesa, architect and director of Tres60, “this model has an exceptional aesthetics, marked by the subtle grey veins typical of the Calacatta marble, and presents a natural purity and a spectacular shine that contribute to enhancing the luminosity of the spaces”. Ricardo Hoyos, commercial director of Adrihosan, adds that this product for flooring, cladding and countertops “provides all the technical features of large format sintered mass, among which resistance and durability must be taken into account”. Despite its delicate appearance, the ultra-compact surface of Arklam’s Atlantis model remains unaltered by everyday wear and tear and the passage of time.
