‘PROGRESS AND INTERACTIVITY: THE ESSENTIAL PROPERTIES OF MODERN CONSTRUCTION, ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN.’ Project Director Ruzanna Sarkisova

On the edge of the present and the future Dear friends, For two years we have built up knowledge and now we have the opportunity to apply it in practice. MosBuild Magazine No. 9 is a pilot content project, which will promote the most progressive and successful working principles in all areas connected with the formation of our surroundings. The main theme in the current issue is technology and nature, and their ability to play the role of elements that complement one another and work together in modern life. Sustainable development of our living environment, green architecture and intelligent building design will become regular topics in our articles. In the ‘Design’ section, we have collected materials on current trends in interior design, which have come from fashion industry trends. The fashionable colours, textures and moods created by famous clothes designers have continued in a variety of home col-

lections. This season's preferences are 3D effects, black and white monochrome colour solutions, large scale decor elements and the always popular eco-style trend, Pure and Nature. The main challenge of the new format is to develop a universal language that can be understood by all professionals involved in the creation of property, and to follow the interrelationship of construction, architecture and design. In keeping with this logic, we have arranged the sections in order of the building, or rather the creative, process, from the project design and architecture to items of decoration. We do not claim a comprehensive analysis of global architecture and design, but we are taking the first steps in this direction, mapping out the clearest trends that balance on the edge of the present and the future in architecture and design.

What did national groups present at the country’s main exhibition? Seventeen national teams were present at MosBuild, the international building and interiors exhibition, which finished recently. The stands of Belgium, Hungary, Germany, Greece, Spain, Italy, China, South Korea, Lithuania, Malaysia, Portugal, Serbia, Taiwan, Finland, France, Croatia and the Czech Republic, which were grouped under the flags of their countries, generated a lot of interest from visitors, industry professionals and exhibitors. At the exhibition, ITALY presented a variety of ceramic tiles, sanitary ware, stone, technical ceramics and manufacturing equipment. Sixty companies – whose participation was supported by the Italian Trade Commission (ICE), Confindustria Ceramica (the association of Italian ceramics), Confindustria Marmomacchine (the Italian association of manufacturers and users of machinery and other equipment for natural stone processing) and ACIMAC (the

Association for Italian Manufacturers of Machinery and Equipment for Ceramics) – shared by two of the largest exhibition spaces. The design of the ‘Ceramics of Italy’ stand produced a warm and welcoming atmosphere in traditional Italian style. As for the ‘Made in Italy’ space, it demonstrated to visitors the might of Italian design, with its unique innovative and creative capabilities. The Italian Ambassador to Russia, Mr. Antonio Zanardi Landi, visited the exhibition and assessed the results of the Italian national group’s participation in the event. According to Mr. Landi, the MosBuild exhibition is of great international importance. At the show business relationships and partnerships are established that help to develop not only the construction industry but also global economic relations. Andrea Serri, the official representative of the Italian group, commented: ’We certainly appreciate the opportunities that are presented to the manufacturers, architects, designers, importers and distributors participating in MosBuild. The exhibition occupies a leading position in the Russian market, the rapid development of which is determined by the significant increase in investment in construction.‛

‘IN BELGIUM, THEY SAY THAT WHEN CONSTRUCTION IS GROWING EVERYTHING IS GROWING. THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY IS A THERMOMETER FOR DETERMINING HOW THE COUNTRY’S ECONOMY IS DEVELOPING. OVER 20 COMPANIES FROM BELGIUM PARTICIPATED IN THE MOSBUILD EXHIBITION. THEY ARE ACTIVE PARTICIPANTS IN THE RUSSIAN CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY.’ From a speech by the Belgian Ambassador to Russia Mr. Guy Trouveroy

The SPANISH national group stand offered up a variety of colours to the exhibition visitors. It was organised with the support of Ascer, the association of ceramic manufacturers, and featured the slogan ‘Distinctively Unique’. In a space of 2400 square metres, Spain’s national group brought together more than 50 Spanish companies, showing collections created specifically for Russian consumers. The central stand, ‘Tile of Spain’, which traditionally serves as a beacon of information for the Spanish group, was this year notable for its advanced and innovative design. The idea for the design was developed by the Russian architect Denis Avanesov. Spain presented its new image to visitors, attempting to convey the uniqueness of its colourful solutions, and, most importantly, the high quality of Spanish products. GERMANY was represented in all three sectors of the exhibition. Together with the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology and the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry (AUMA), 41 companies demonstrated 8400 product types across various segments of the construction and interiors in-

dustry. The area occupied by the German national group totalled more than 4000 square metres. SERBIA will certainly be seen by Russian industry professionals as a reliable partner in the construction industry, given that it is the only non-CIS country that has concluded a free trade agreement with Russia. A duty-free export market with 1 billion consumers, a growing real estate market, as well as the internal growth of the construction industry, attracted the interest of many industry professionals to the stands of this particular country. For the exhibition FINLAND brought together leading sustainable building companies. The national group only exhibited eco-friendly labelled products. The focus in the positioning of the Finnish products at MosBuild was on eco-friendliness, energy efficiency, safety and reliability. By presenting such products at the exhibition, Finland supported MosBuild’s efforts to promote the development of the international eco-quality movement in the construction and interiors industry.

MosBuild 2013 The group first visited the stand of Rosstyle, which has operated in the market since 1996 and is the largest supplier of decorative materials in Russia and the CIS. Rosstyle has exhibited at MosBuild for the past 13 years, and each year the company demonstrates new designs and products that meet modern requirements and standards. At the stand of Samara Gypsum Plant, one of the largest businesses in the Russian gypsum industry, company representatives spoke about the plant’s main specialisation - namely, the production of highstrength and building gypsum, gypsum partition boards and dry construction mixes. The Volgograd company Volma, which also specialises in the production of interior finishing materials, is one of the regular exhibitors. For over 6 years, at its stand at MosBuild the company has staged master classes and presentations of new materials. The guests showed great interest in the products of Albes, a manufacturer of construction materials for exterior and interior finishing of buildings and structures. Particular attention was given to the suspended metal ceilings, ventilated facade systems, profiles for plasterboard and lights. The exhibition tour ended at the stand of Alfa Profil. Occupying a leading position in the construction market, the company produces PVC finishing materials: vinyl, acrylic and vertical siding, block house, facade panels, rainwater systems, plastic panels, battens and window sills. The guests of honour shared the view that the standard of presentation of products was very high, fully reflecting the latest industry trends. More information at www.mosbuild.com

The best solutions from young architects The results of the 2nd international MosBuild Architecture and Design Awards (MADA) have been announced. From young architects and architectural students the jury chose the winners in the categories ‘Best architectural solution for creating an accessible environment’ and ‘Best sustainable architecture project’. In the first category the winners were: Diana Vatinyan (Russia), a young architect, and Maria Kataryan (Russia), a student at an architectural university. In the second category the winners were: Jordi Comas Mora, a young architect from Spain, and Konrad Urbanowicz, a Polish architecture student.

In the category ‘Best sustainable architecture project’ Maria Kataryan proposed an eco-friendly path of development for Moscow and the Moscow suburbs. Ms. Kataryan proposes creating an urban environment, where all the components complement each other, creating an energy-efficient and eco-friendly space. For example, the efficiency of greenhouses in Moscow can be improved by combining types of agricultural crops that together would produce more yield than individually. According to the project, energy-efficient businesses that do not harm the environment will help to provide greenhouses with energy. Ms. Kataryan understands how difficult it is today to realise such a project, but a sustainable living environment looks very attractive and in the future may be in demand among Muscovites.

Jordi Comas Mora proposed an accessible environment solution in the historical centre of Ripoll, Girona province, Spain. The basic idea of the project is to expand the pedestrian zone to the most significant quarters of Ripoll (placa st. Eudald and placa Grand), to return a historical character to the centre, making it convenient for people, not for cars. Jordi Comas Mora began his project with st. Eudald, the largest square in the city. It should be cleared of urban

furniture and paved. Through the paving the perimeter of a church that once stood on the site is returned. The reconstruction will also take in placa Grand, which is shaped more like an avenue and is the business and entertainment centre of Ripoll. Placa Grand shall also be paved. The same covering on the pavements, road and car parks creates a uniformity of space and in the future will help to repurpose the entire space into a pedestrian area. The creator of the project proposes using granite for paving the streets, as it is strong enough to withstand the weight of vehicles. At the same time, as an alternate covering for special areas, metal will be used (to highlight the perimeter of the church and stay zones). It was decided to use metal because, firstly, Ripoll was a major production centre of the steel industry, and secondly, to join the road paving with Lira Square, which is planned with iron paving. Three types of lighting have been developed for the centre of Ripoll, the choice of which depends on the location: linear streetlamps for the avenue, sculptural lights for stay zones and hanging lamps for streets and porches. Fitted LEDs in the pavement minimise energy costs. Some trees surrounded by white river stones will protect the stay and walk areas from vehicles. More information at www.mada-awards.com

NEWS l ARCHITECTURE

London’s Shard The highest skyscraper in London opened this year, offering a fascinating attraction for tourists with a viewing gallery on the top five floors. The Shard is a 306 m skyscraper in London designed by the architect Renzo Piano. The building is pyramid shaped and clad in glass. The 72 floors of the skyscraper cover an area of 110,000 sqm, with offices, elite apartments, a luxury hotel, restaurants and viewing galleries – the typical set of features for a modern complex. The skyscraper stands at a major transport hub, London Bridge (railway station, bus station and underground stop), and with the neighbouring buildings creates a modern architectural complex of glass and metal.

Architecture for fauna and flora In Copenhagen, a new oceanarium, The Blue Planet, has opened, becoming the largest in Northern Europe. Fifty-three aquariums totalling more than 7 million litres house over 450 species of fish and marine mammals. The building of the Danish oceanarium has attracted attention for the original architecture and unusual curves of the facade. The Blue Planet was designed by the Danish architectural firm 3XN. The difficult task of protecting the building from cold, moisture and unwanted noise was solved through the use of durable and reliable ROCKWOOL thermal insulation. Since the building is located close to Copenhagen Airport, one of the main tasks in the construction was to choose an acoustic solution that would protect the aquatic life from extraneous noise. Another important challenge was protecting the building envelope from the harmful effects of precipitation. As the walls of the building are positioned at an angle of less than 80°, they function not as walls but as a roof, and it was therefore necessary to choose ap-

propriate materials to prevent the harmful effects of precipitation on such an unusual roof. These issues have been addressed through the use of rigid insulation boards from ROCKWOOL and solutions for insulating ventilated facades. Thanks to the high density of the rigid boards, optimal sound insulation is provided. The properties of the facade thermal insulation allow the material to transfer the effect of moisture without losing its useful qualities. The fireproof properties of stone wool, from which both materials are made, provide reliable protection of the building facades. The new oceanarium blends into the natural landscape and will not only delight visitors, but will also be protected for years to come by the durable and eco-friendly materials of ROCKWOOL.

In 2013 she was honoured with the title of ‘Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres de la République Française’ and in 2002 she was honoured with the title of ‘Officier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres de la République Française’. Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas embrace innovation as well as tradition. They have become known for bold designs using expressive forms and modern materials: glass, inox and aluminium. They are known not only as architects, but also as designers of interior.

The French National Archive Centre, established at the time of the French Revolution, holds political documents from the seventeenth century to the present day. The new complex - which will house, among other documents, Napoleon’s last will and testament - was recently completed in the Parisian suburb of Pierrefitte-sur-Seine based on a design by the Fuksas studio. The project includes two buildings: an administrative building and archive building. The first includes offices, a 300-seat conference hall and exhibition halls.

The building has six levels. The upper floors are offcentre from each other, resembling a casually piled up stack of books. The lower levels of the building are made of transparent materials, but the architect has positioned a diamond-shaped metal grid on the top three floors, which visually relates them to the facade of the archive building next to it, which is covered with diamond-shaped plates of glass and aluminum. The sleek silhouette of the archive serves as a backdrop to the administrative building. The entire surface is covered with aluminium plates, apart from a few glass inserts through which sunlight enters the reading rooms. The building has ten floors with 220 archive rooms. There are also repositories of historical documents and reading rooms with 160 seats. The space between the buildings is filled with decorative pools featuring original sculptures by Antony Gormley. The sculptures rise from the surface of the water and are reflected in the facades, creating a play of light and shade that gives vitality to the whole complex. The buildings are connected by walkways over the pools. In 2005, the National Archives Centre design by Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas was named the best of 120 entries in an architectural competition. Eight years later the design has been brought to life. The complex in the suburbs of Paris is a modern temple of historical memory and the science. MosBuild magazine #9

Formula 1 in architecture This year, Alubond U.S.A exhibited at MosBuild Fenestration for the first time. The great interest in the stand was not only caused by the products on display and professional advice of American experts, but also by the level of attention given to each visitor to the stand. To enter the broad Russian market, Alubond U.S.A envisages product delivery times irrespective of distance. As part of its strategic expansion plan, Alubond U.S.A has established Alubond Europe in Serbia, with a capacity of 2 million square metres. This factory is intended to meet the demand in 40 countries in Europe and in Russia, and new production facilities in Sri Lanka and Saudi Arabia have made U.S.A Alubond the biggest brand of metal composite panels in the world. Architects in more than 90 countries use panels from Alubond U.S.A for the facades of prestigious buildings. One striking example of the successful combination of architecture and material is Yas Hotel in Abu Dhabi. The hotel is located 15 minutes from the city centre and 10 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport. It is also near the Formula 1 and Yas Marina Formula 1 tracks; the hotel was built for to accommodate the guests and participants of these events. One part of Yas Hotel stands on land and the other on water. Five hundred five-star rooms have panoramic views of the water and F1 track. The unique style and design, smooth lines and changing LED lighting make Yas Hotel another architectural landmark of Abu Dhabi.

MosBuild magazine #9


PROJECT l ARCHITECTURE

The house is located in a cul-de-sac, but because the property is in the elite segment of the market, it was necessary to give it an innovative appearance. The result is a facade that changes at different times of the year. Another objective of the project was to buck the trend of constructing large buildings in our cities, which lack green spaces. The total area of the three-storey house is 248 m². On the ground floor is the garage and utility rooms, on the first floor the bedrooms and bathrooms, and on the third floor the living room and kitchen. The flat roof includes a terrace and small swimming pool. Redefining the conventional positions of the rooms and functions (private space downstairs and guest space upstairs) is more than justified in this case. The staircase, which leads to the roof and unites all the floors, stands alongside the house as a separate feature. The glass roof of the staircase is constructed from the CR 120 Reynaers Aluminium system, which lights all the interior of the building during the day. The vertical garden on the building’s facade revives the urban environment and is a good example of caring for the environment in the heart of the city, improving air quality and insulating the building’s inhabitants from noise and heat.

An American record In New York, the construction of the World Trade Centre continues. Freedom Tower, the main building of the new complex, has reached its planned height of 541 m or 1776 ft, a symbolic number as it is the year that the United States Declaration of Independence was signed.

The tower is the tallest skyscraper in the Western hemisphere and ranks third tallest in the world. After long negotiations and surveys of New Yorkers, the project proposed by Daniel Libeskin was chosen and in 2006 construction began on the building. For increased security, the socle part of the skyscraper is a powerful reinforced concrete structure. On the outside it is faced with unusual prismatic shaped glass elements. All the facades of the building are also faced with special glass in a blue shade. The glass fa-

cades are ideal for the viewing platforms and restaurants that are located on the upper floors of the skyscraper and have stunning views of the city. The 104 floors of the Freedom Tower will house offices of international companies and public services, exhibition spaces, viewing galleries and restaurants. The centre of the tower will be a huge hall, 24 m high. On the underground level will be vestibules connecting the building to the New York subway and train station. Construction is due to be completed in 2014.

A ship sails with glass The residential complex Fregat [NEO] in Krasnoyarsk is positioned as a closed complex of comfortable living. It is built in line with the new urban house-building concept ‘free& guard’. The essence of the concept is reliable protection of the complex against negative factors, as well as high-tech engineering solutions that provide maximum freedom and comfort to residents. The facade solution of this ‘three-mast sailing ship’ is based on the ALT F50 system from ALUTECH, while for the windows and doors of the ALT and W C4862 systems have been used.

Current trends For the first time in the construction of MIBC ‘Moscow-City’, products from the Russian aluminium profiles manufacturer Realit are being used for the glazing of the buildings’ facades. By the end of 2013, four large projects will be built using the element facade series RF 68 EF from Realit. Two of them have been written about previously: a recreation complex with a winter garden and hotel, which is part of the Moscow International Business Centre ‘Moscow-City’, and the Gazoil City residential complex. One of the new projects, which is scheduled for completion in 2013, is a multifunctional complex on Poklonnaya Hill. The complex will consist of five buildings: three 13-storey towers with luxury apartments, one 6-storey building with office and retail premises, and a 20-storey office tower with commercial space on the ground floor. The tallest tower in the complex is being built using the element facade series RF 68 EF from Realit. In the rest of the buildings the facades are being made from the classic series RF 50. The total area of the complex is approximately 150,000 sqm. The area of the RF EF 68 glazing is about 15,000 sqm. For these projects, the design department at Realit has developed an aluminum profile for connecting a stick system facade with an element facade, as well as a profile and rubber sealer for a fracture angle of 50 between the elements. The Realit element facade enables aluminium panoramic windows and exits to verandas, terraces, loggias and balconies to be added to the building.

Best of the best In 2013, Capital Group was named ‘Developer of the Decade‛ at the CRE Awards. The purpose of the special category dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the awards was to identify the best of the best in construction and real estate development over the past ten years. Among the nominees were major market players who have been named ‘Developer of the Year‛ in the 10 years that the awards have been running: Crocus Group, Belaya Ploshchad, Capital Partners, IKEA, Forum Preoperties and Enka. The head office of Capital Group is located in the Capital City complex at the Moscow International Business Centre ‘Moscow-City‛. In 2010, the mixed-use Capital City complex capital was named among the top ten best skyscrapers in the world by the prestigious international Emporis Skyscraper Award. Capital City was the only fully constructed and operational Russian skyscraper to achieve such a high ranking (the project was assessed on criteria such as architecture and design, functionality, innovation engineering systems, and comfort for residents and visitors). The purpose of the Emporis Skyscraper Award is to highlight projects ’that promote the development of aesthetic taste in inhabitants of megacities, embody a striving for new horizons in architecture and, at the same time, harmoniously fit into the surrounding urban landscape‛.

Creative credo: ‘Taking in the raw data via a kind of meditation, I try to tune in to the correct understanding of the challenges and personality of the customer. The fate of the project largely depends on this. Ideas emerge as the result of observation of the space and the desire to make it awaken new images in the subconscious. The essence of any creative work is seeking out something. The result serves as a basis for the next step. The purpose of the journey is its continuation.’ Project architects Dmitri Bykov and Dmitry Korshunov

Architectural workshop Architect’s bio: The DIA architectural studio was conceived on 12 January 1993. Bykov and fellow architect Kochanov decided to set up a private business, taking their ideas and enthusiasm as starting capital, which more than compensated for their lack of significant experience. The architects also wanted professional and financial freedom. Surprisingly, their fellow students, Dmitry Korshunov and Irina Borzova, wanted to be involved in Bykov and Kochanov’s enterprise. And amazingly they are still there today. DIA is now a community of architects led by Dmitry Bykov.

The periodic participation of the studio’s architects in various contests, including internationally, has brought many prizes and certificates. The studio’s architects have won Russian and international competitions. DIA’s chief architect Dmitry Bykov is a full member of the Moscow Architectural Society and Union of Moscow Architects. The average area of the studio’s projects is increasing significantly and the proportion of private houses, with respect to interiors, is growing. DIA has successful experience in the reconstruction of small sites for social and office functions.


PROJECT l CONSTRUCTION

Dmitry Bykov was born in Moscow and graduated from the Moscow Institute of Architecture in 1987. He then worked at the Sergey Kiselyev and Partners architectural practice until 1993. In the same year, he founded the DIA architectural studio. All his projects are characterised by clean lines, strict taste and a balance of proportions. Bykov only takes private orders and does not build anything large in the city as a matter of principle.

CONSTRUCTION l PROJECT

Project: The house in Nikolo-Urupino is a contemporary reading of European tradition, and simplicity of form extended to Japanese economy. Dmitry Bykov: ‘While studying at the institute I related badly to neo classicism. When I was older I realised that it was made by brilliant masters; the architecture is interestingly drawn and everything is imbued with a conservative sense. And without a healthy conservatism the new cannot exist, like black without white. Now there is no need to construct buildings with the mathematical principles of Vitruvius, but if architects don’t think about proportionality, the result is nonsense. The problem of finding proportions is a current one.’ Volumetric-spatial composition The house consists of two volumes spaced from each other and sharing the same roof. All the main rooms of the house are contained in the main volume, while the secondary voluem is designed for the technical facilities. The main part of the house is under a duo-pitch roof, one of the pitches of which

covers the second volume, which is extended with a covered terrace. An unusual part of the volumetric-spatial composition is the house’s base. It is relatively small in size and is split over three levels, two of which combines vital functions: foundations, perimeter paving and pool deck. Decorating materials and facade details The unusual base is covered with sandstone sawn into thin slabs. Both volumes of the house are finished with Dutch facing brick. The roof is covered with ceramic slate. The window openings are framed with wooden inlays. The windows themselves are double-glazed in wooden frames. All the wooden parts of the facades are made of softwood and coated with special dyes. The connecting elements made of stainless steel. Layout solutions On the first floor of the auxiliary block are a twocar garage, storeroom for garden machinery and tools, and a furnace. On the second floor is an apartment and pantry. The planning structure of the first

floor of the main building was highly unusual. Firstly, the proportions: it is a 3.5 m square located in a line. Along the longitudinal axis are non-living spaces (kitchen, hall, bathrooms, etc.), which from two sides can be passed along the galleries by the windows. On one side this space is completed by a living and dining room, and on the other by a guest bedroom and laundry room. As a result, the first floor space is perceived as a single entity, lit by abundant natural light. The layout of the second floor is simpler and traditional. Adjoining the gallery running along the main facade are the master bedroom with dressing room and bathroom; study; and guest and children’s bedrooms with bathroom and dressing room. Good sound insulation is used for this combination of rooms. Building solutions The structural basis of the building is load-bearing brick cross walls and monolithic reinforced concrete foundation slab. The ceilings are monolithic reinforced concrete. The roof structure is steel. Ventilation ducts are gathered together in four tubes. There is central air-conditioning and a collector heating system. The heating equipment includes radiators and floor convectors. The roof’s water catchment system is directly connected with the site’s drainage system, so that the water collected from the roof is removed from the plot by pipes located in the soil.

ROMAN COLLECTION In 2013, KERAMA MARAZZI presented a new conceptual collection of ceramic, porcelain and mosaic tiles called the Roman Collection.

40

MosBuild magazine #9

It is dedicated to the theme of the eternal city of Rome, which for several thousand years has inspired artists, musicians, poets and writers to create. It also inspired the designers of KERAMA MARAZZI to create a new collection with its own character. The result is a ceramic tile in light, neutral colours with detailed decor, which will be ideal for the interiors of modern shopping centres, airports, restaurants, hotels and, of course, private apartments. The Roman Collection is a true embodiment of Roman classicism. The names of the series in the collection are reminiscent of past and future travels to the eternal city: Villa Borghese, Barberini, Frascati, Villa Medici, Ravenna, Ferentino, and so on. The ceramic wall and floor tile series Ravenna imitates the traditional mosaic technique, known since ancient Rome. To the glaze is applied a design that is covered by a layer of new material – spherical fritt. The design shows through the fritt, creating a mosaic effect. The Lazio series is a symbiosis of ancient artistic traditions and modern technologies. The ceramic tile is in classic monochrome colours and features a geometrical pattern in the form of a maze. The glaze is matte with a lustre stamp.

Changing tile for glass For over 12 years, Ligron has manufactured and sold kitchen tops and wall panels made of laminate, natural wood and artificial stone. But the most interesting trend in recent years for the company has been the use of tempered glass. Exclusive, original, expressive - these words barely do justice to the glass kitchen tops, panels and furniture created with this material. The basic collection of finishes for glass products, Vitrodesign by Ligron, reproduces the pattern and colours of natural stone and precious wood. However, trends in decoration are constantly changing, and natural patterns are being replaced by prints of photographic images and unusual designs. Tempered or refined glass can have a glossy or matte surface with printed design, as well as with any nonstandard image. The advantages of decorative glass include UV resistance, high heat resistance and good adhesion (connection of paint and glass), which means the glass panels can be used in wet environments.

A union of beauty and functionality GROHE Minta – the attractive, innovative and most popular kitchen mixer tap – has risen another level higher in technical excellence. Now, to wash dirty hands, you can turn on the tap simply by touching the GROHE Minta Touch with the back of your hand, wrist, elbow or even a fingertip. The tap can also be controlled using a mechanical lever. The smooth motion of the spout when turning makes it easy to handle. A pull-out spray increases the coverage angle of the tap and works in different modes. The spout height makes it easy to fill large containers. GROHE Minta Touch comes in three versions: with a smoothly curved C-spout, with an attractive L-shaped spout and pull-out aerator, and with a pull-out spray on a flexible hose. The separately installed Grohtherm Micro thermostat, together with EasyTouch technology, can supply warm water automatically, which will help set the preferred temperature of the water and offer 100% protection from scalding.

Refined nature The nature of our planet is surprisingly rich in organic and perfect forms. It’s a real goldmine of ideas. The use of floristic diversity is a current trend and fertile ground for creative interpretation. The designers of Color Symphony cleverly interweave floral designs with forms borne from their imagination. The new and exclusive Nature wallpaper collection, recently introduced by Rosstyle, is a perfect example of such interaction.

Profession as reward Responding to the age-old philosophical question ‘What is the most important thing in life?’, wise people agree that the most important thing in life is loving life. Following their logic, let’s assume that the main thing in a profession is to love one’s profession. The energy given out by the surrounding world must be multiplied and given back. Architecture and design is an excellent way of doing this. The Tatiana Mironova architectural studio was created in 1996 as the design division of Mosproekte-3. In 2004, the studio became an independent project and attained the status of an exclusive architect’s practice. Over the past 16 years, the creative team, headed by CEO and architect Tatiana Mironova, has realised more than 150 design projects: buildings of different levels of complexity and purpose, such as private residences, mansions, apartments, shops, offices and entertainment centres. In October 2012, the Tatiana Mironova architectural studio was awarded in two categories at the International Property Awards Europe. Tatiana Mironova’s projects received honorary ‘Five Stars’ and ‘Best Interior Design’.

‘Architecture is the finest of the arts. I adore it. I consider it a reward that I do such a wonderful thing. I like and respect our clients, who have entrusted to me their most precious thing: their home.’ Tatiana Mironova

The European Property Awards features the best projects in residential and commercial real estate from all over the world. Each country has its own round of the competition. The European winners - along with the winners from the Arab countries, the Middle East, United States, South America, Africa and the AsiaPacific region - are nominated at the world famous competition, which since its launch 19 years ago has turned into the most prestigious competition in residential and commercial real estate. At the next and final stage, the projects in each category that have received the highest rating of ‘Five Stars’ at the International Property Awards will compete for the title of ‘World’s Best’, the best design project in the world in 2012-2013. The winners will be announced in the final, which will be held in winter in London. The Tatiana Mironova architectural studio received two awards of “Five Stars” and will participate in the upcoming finals.

PROJECT l INTERIORS

Tatiana Mironova: “The house was very light from the outset, due to the numerous panoramic windows on all four sides. I wanted to keep this positive mood, so we opted for a light, intelligent and elegant interior with high-quality, expensive furniture. “The clients invited us to work on the interior when the house was already fully built. The original layout of the building did not require significant changes, and the client asked us to glaze the vast outdoor terraces and to turn them into proper accommodation. So in their place appeared spacious bedrooms and a billiards room under the ‘open sky’ (glass roof). The building was so light that I wanted to preserve and enhance the atmosphere. The colour of the walls and ceilings, richly decorated with moulded rosettes and caissons, is white or light cream. The open portals, doors, columns, and most of the items are dark and are made of solid wood. The contrast of dark and light looks very classy and elegant and, at the same time does, not weigh down the space, because there are far more bright shades in the space. Some interior elements reference art-deco style. The characteristics of this style can be seen in the

simple geometric lines of the upholstered furniture, in the large proportions of the rooms and even in the lights from rough cut glass. And yet no particular style can be assigned to the interior; it is more of a mix of different classical styles. Discussing the interior they wanted, the clients said just two words: “noble” and “intelligent”. And this is the basis of a classical direction. Naturally, many classical techniques were used, both in the organisation of the space and in the decoration. In each room the central axis is defined. The fireplace and TV screen opposite each other in the living room are positioned strictly along the axis and a round moulded rosette with chandelier on the ceiling visually divides the room into two parts. With this solution it does not jump out at you that the wide portal between the living room and lounge is located asymmetrically to the winter garden. To some extent, the design is influenced by colonial style. Large solid furniture, rattan tables, and leopard and zebra colouring of the chair upholstery are partly diluted by the conservatism of the classical and art deco styles. The area of the bedroom is impressive: 200 square metres. So that the owners feel comfortable in such a large area, the space has been divided into several zones. There is a dining area, equipped with two cupboards with built-in refrigerators, stove and breakfast bar to prepare light snacks and drinks. Right in the centre, under a transparent pyramidal atrium, on a raised floor from solid wood with a silk carpet, is a bed from the Ralph Lauren collection. On either side of it are two symmetrically positioned round tables with very comfortable, deep armchairs. On the opposite side to the entrance are two sofa groups.

The bar counter separates the dining room from the kitchen zone. The kitchen features a large cornice, which repeats the shape of the capitals of the columns from tinted wood.

The home theatre is in the basement. For improved sound insulation the walls are covered with panels of natural leather.

One is near the fireplace, which is integrated into a rectangular structure from onyx, and the second is by the home theatre, which is finished in the exact same way as the onyx structure. Each of the zones in the bedroom is accented by elegant chandeliers, similar to huge bouquets of white roses. The owners decided to make the bedroom interior romantic and gentle. The perimeter of the ceiling is decorated with a moulded 60 cm cornice of pink flower buds made by Russian craftsmen. On entering the house for the first time, you are struck by the abundance of light pouring in from the numerous panoramic windows.

The idea of the ‘House for all times’ project was to bring together what was previously not thought possible to join. The architect combines materials, styles and elements to create a single, harmonious space: stained solid wood edged with a textured pattern that sparkles in the light, and a mixture of art deco, modern and art nouveau elements. The extraordinary design gives the house a refined look, which will remain for all times. In this house there are enough artistic and architectural treasures for several houses. The architects, craftsmen and partners have really exceeded themselves to create this fantastically beautiful and unusual interior. On first entering this welcoming house everyone is impressed by its interior. Everyone is expecting to see something completely different. The wooden house has been built by Honka in their very recognisable style. Once inside you’re not sure whether it is a new classic, modern or contemporary artdeco style. The main thing that strikes you is the finish of the walls. They are all made of wood with the texture preserved, but with colour and decoration. The owners saw their new home very differently.

The heart of the home is the kitchen and breakfast room. They become a favourite place for family fun. A round table, attractive chairs, bar stools upholstered in velvet, a kitchen island imitating a bar counter, Lam Lee lighting – all these items create an atmosphere of comfort. ble style. The architect, as is often the case, had to look for a compromise. Tatiana Mironova: ‘If you look at the layout of the house, it is very strict, symmetrical and precise. The rooms on the first floor — hall, living room, dining room, kitchen, breakfast room and guest bathrooms - are situated along the main axis leading from the large mirrors in the hall to the corner area in the living room. On the lower floor there is a billiard room, a study, a library, staff room and bathrooms. On the second floor are the master bedroom and a teenager’s bedroom. The floor plan, though it seems logical and simple, is far from it. The wooden house its own architectural features and there is no escaping them. The fireplace could only be positioned in a specific location, the stairs were designed as a separate, independent structure that does not respond to shrinkage of the house, and it was not possible to move the loadbearing pillars and walls. With the help of architectural and design tricks we've managed to iron out all those issues so that an ordinary person won’t notice how many complex engineering issues were solved for the sake of beauty. But, of course, first of all, we have been developing the basic style of the home - its colouring and atmosphere. Speaking honestly, it was a great artistic experiment. The interior is brought together by contrasting elements: the wooden beams are coated with a tint, and from above a textured painting that plays on the light. Wooden ceilings blend with the moulded cornice, and classic furniture stands on a floor of leather tiles. Due to this unusual design, the house is both fashionable and, so to speak, out of time.’

The walls and ceilings in the house become a field for experimentation. The natural colour of wooden walls has been replaced by painting them in a beautiful gray tone. On parts of the walls textured plaster has been applied and on other parts they are covered by a relief, which plays on the light of the painting. There are two cornices: one is wooden, and the second, wider one is moulded. The wooden cornice was manufactured by the well-known Provasi factory. The result exceeded all expectations, and the factory owner personally came to the house to admire the work of his craftsmen. MosBuild magazine #9

The bedroom, bathroom and private office of the house owners are decorated in colonial style. The bed is upholstered with leather, and everything looks respectable.

The main room in the house is the living room. A corridor from the entry doors (main door and door to garden) leads to the living room and is paved with African slate stone in unusual colours. It is graphite, but with spots of green, brown and rusty red. The central zone of the corridor is decorated with a great slab of another rare stone, which is gray-green with streaks of graphite, red and brown. The living room decoration required a special approach. Firstly, the room is very large and needed large items. Secondly, in this space it was necessary to marry classic and modern style.

This easy way to diversify an interior is becoming more popular and involves giant sizes.

Pure & Nature Naturalness is an eternal trend in interiors. This trend is reflected in the colour preferences and textures. Increasingly, in interior decoration so-called “unpainted� colours are used, which give a certain wear to furniture, decor and textiles. The roughness of raw wood, coolness of natural stone and fluffiness of fur are tactile sensations that remind us of the connection with land and nature, and are an integral part of the eco-style. 4

Hadi Teherani:

Unity of architecture and design Specialists and those who appreciate original interiors are always interested in innovative products. One such product is Scale Living, a free-form carpet tile collection from Vorwerk Carpet. The carpet is a ’puzzle‛ of various shapes, colour combinations and materials, allowing you to pick an individual carpet that best matches the interior. The Scale Living collection was created by the German architect Hadi Teherani, who is of Iranian origin. In addition to buildings, offices, residential complexes, shopping centres and train stations, Teherani designs kitchen interiors, bathroom collections, wallpapers and office furniture. Among his most famous works are the ICE high-speed train station in Frankfurt (Germany), the twin towers in Dubai (U.A.E.) and the Garden Tower in Istanbul (Turkey). Several Russian projects are currently being implemented: the Cosmo Park business centre, a 45-story highrise on Profsoyuznaya Street and the Setun Hills office and shopping complex. The most important aspects in Teherani’s buildings are eco-friendliness and suitability to the site. The architect employs extensive greening in his projects, placing plants directly on building facades. This approach was prominent in the Swiss Re office building in Munich. According to the architect, he ’placed a field vertically and erected a building inside‛. A no less significant example of Teherani’s eco-architecture is the glass ’crane houses‛ built in the old harbour of Cologne. Taking El Lissitzky’s idea of horizontal skyscrapers, Teherani raised them above the city, giving the appearance of port cranes. The glass skyscrapers of strict geometrical form accommodate residential apartments and offices, with courtyards for residents and workers from the offices. The principles embodied in Hadi Teherani’s architecture are also found in his product design work. His collection of wallpapers are characterised by strict and concise designs. Great thought is given to the colour combinations. Teherani’s wallpapers are geared towards high-tech, modern and minimalistic interiors.

The smooth angles offer comfort and a pleasant interior appearance regardless of the size of the bathroom. The items are fitted with concealed fastener systems and are suitable for both individual rooms and public spaces.

collection was awarded the prestigious Red Dot Design Award and NeoCon award. The collection includes lounge tables and armchairs, chairs with wooden movable seats, conference tables, cabinets and sideboards with integrated multimedia technology. The S 8000 conference table deserves particular attention. The design combines functionality and visual simplicity. The elegant solid leg of the table, curving like a ribbon, supports the table and then comes to the tabletop surface, turning into a functional element with built-in multimedia devices. Hadi Teherani’s creativity is very diverse, but all his creations are characterised by integrity, simplicity and functionality. According to the architect, ’architecture should awake emotions and, at the same time, be an organic part of the urban space‛. Teherani’s innovative ideas are highly valued by the world of architecture and design: his collections and projects have won numerous awards and are popular among professionals.

Iconic Design combines classical European furniture design with modern colours of upholstery fabric from Lauren’s collections. The main principle for the designer is the use of exclusively natural materials. The Iconic Design fabrics come in a carefully chosen range of colours and are of the highest quality. They are produced by the most skilled craftsmen from all over the world, thus ensuring the quality of Ralph Lauren Home. The Left Bank collection continues the restrained luxury style and includes everything needed to complete the interior: furniture, fabrics, lighting, accessories and tableware. Textile in natural colours from 100% wool and flax sets the tone of the entire collection. Left Bank includes tablecloths, bedspreads, blankets, pillows and bed linens in striped colours. Handmade ceramic tableware is available in the same colour scheme. The Left Bank furniture collection is made of blackened wood with wicker elements. All the items have a deliberately simple outline shape. According to Ralph Lauren, the trend this season is to create interiors from natural materials. The fabrics should be in subtle but, at the same time, deep tones. A combination of luxury forms, modern craftsmanship and a slight hint of shabby chic underlines the style of ’American aristocracy‛ so beloved by Ralph Lauren. 2

Mario Mazzer’s intensive minimalism All genius design is simple. This truth is evident in the work of the Italian designer and architect Mario Mazzer, whose collections and interiors have become a model of minimalism and functionality. One of the latest pieces by the designer is the Minotti Cucine kitchen Interior, which is constructed from precise geometric elements using only natural materials. First of all, Mazzer has concealed familiar details: hoods are hidden behind facades and counter tops on some models are visually absent. The result is a classic design that will hardly ever go out of fashion. As the designer says: ’there are materials created by man – laminate, plastic, composite – and there are materials created by God: stone, wood and metal. What a man makes becomes outmoded over time. What God makes never becomes outmoded‛. The designer gives a lot of attention to the bathroom space. The interior of straight lines and angles is visually simple, but at the same time functional. The copper shine of the bath tub contrasts with the saturated colour of wood or stone framing its perimeter. The Euclide basins in this interior are a perfect circle shape in a parallelepiped. The basin is made from an antibacterial alloy sunk in the pedestal, which is made of copper with a lining of wood or stone. Among the furniture collections, one of the new pieces by Mario Mazzer is a series of modern ergonomic armchairs. The designer has created models with a chromed frame and plastic seats, as well as chairs upholstered with fabric or leather. The seats and frame are made in different colours: metallic, anthracite, white, sand, yellow and red khaki. Mario Mazzer’s light collection, Up Lamp, was created for Lucente and is a model of minimalistic design. The products consist of ’legs‛ and ’hats‛ made of polyethylene fabric and LEDs. The lights can be used for both outdoor and indoor lighting. To make the Up Lamp even more homely, knitted lampshades can be slipped over the ’hats‛. The concise forms of Mario Mazzer’s designs have not gone unnoticed by the global community of designers. In 2013, his flat recessed handles for sliding doors, FLAT and OTTO, won a Red Dot Design Award. The handles were designed for Manital. Russian designers learnt about Mario Mazzer at MosBuild 2013, where he presented the Morelli door handle collection which features Swarovski crystals. 3

Benedini: Bathroom minimalism The Italian designer Emanuele Benedini founded the Benedini Associati studio in 1973, focusing on creating collections of bathroom fixtures, taps, showers, furniture, and bathroom accessories under the brand name Agape. The founder and principal designer of Benedini Associati adheres to a minimalist style and the studio’s main collections are in this style. Emanuele Benedini’s products have received several prestigious awards for industrial design, including the Design Plus and Compasso D'Oro. One of the studio’s creative developments is the Roto series of basins with pedestal in bright colours: orange, green, grey or brilliant white. The design of the product resembles a strictly symmetrical shape of vase. The main focus of the new Flat XL Plus bathroom furniture collection by Benedini Associati is functionality. Organically fitted onto the cabinet door is a towel hanger. The basin for the Flat XL Plus collection was specially developed by the Spanish designer Javier Lopez. The symmetry and uniform thickness of all the elements emphasises the unity of the collection, and the flowing shape of the basin, which is reminiscent of a piece of marble worn down by water, softens the severe lines of the furniture.

Alena Agafonova: Ceramics in art deco style Alena Agafonova, the art director of the interior boutique RIM.ru, has not simply followed in the footsteps of her architect parents, but has also expanded her creativity with design projects. It is thanks to her work in interior decoration that the name Alena Agafonova is heard the international art community. The designer works closely with the company Cottoveneto. She is the head of the RIM.ru creative laboratory, the exclusive distributor of Cottoveneto in Russia. In the new season, the creative alliance has developed even further: Alena Agafonova has created her first collection of ceramic tiles for Cottoveneto. According to the designer, the collection is a variation on familiar motifs. First of all, she has used a combination of colours and textures of natural stone, which in some cases have been increased to the size of the tiles, while in other cases they have been reduced to create decors with lots of small items. The result is an exclusive collection of ceramic tiles in art deco style. The MosBuild exhibition has made working with young architects and architectural students a priority. The business programme has a number of events aimed at skills development and experience sharing between experts. MosBuild magazine #9

A Mecca for students The winner of Architectural Concepts Competition for the Museum and Educational Centre of the Polytechnic Museum and Lomonosov Moscow State University has been announced. The project will be carried out by the creative tandem of the Massimiliano Fuksas Architetto architectural practice (Italy) and SPEECH Tchoban & Kuznetsov (Russia). The centre is to be built near Universitet metro station, on Lomonosov Prospekt. The building, with a total area of 31, 403 sqm, will stand out from the surrounding buildings because of its unusual shape and colour. The building consists of four geometric shapes of irregular form, resembling a huge bluegreen crystal cut by the wind. The unusual colour of the building is the result of the effects of nature: oxidation of the copper cladding of the facade. The Museum and Educational Centre will include: two auditoria (500 and 800 seats) similar to a parallelepiped from red wood, three winter gardens under a glass roof, several auditoriums and conference rooms, a science and technology centre, exhibition halls, an art gallery, museum, cinema, laboratory, workshop, library, cafe and shop. Kristian Sullivan, the project leader from FUKSAS, comments: ’In front

of the building we have made an open space and the semi-open ground floor is actually a forum where entrances to the public space are planned from different sides. Such permeability contrasts with the upper part of the building – a conflict between the rationality of the urban environment and mysticism of the city. The shape of the building is an organic entity that is constantly growing and evolving as an idea or discovery. The main materials that we plan to use to in the construction are copper with patina that fully conforms to current urban trends. We hope that our project will be important for Moscow and will affect the quality of life in the city as a whole.‛ According to the architects, the building will be a striking symbol of the triumph of information technology, and may become a Mecca for science students, postgraduates and scientists.

Spanish decor Spanish ceramic tiles are valued throughout the world for their rich colours and original textures. Designers’ ideas are being realised through innovative ceramic coatings, such as in the products of Colorobbia, an exhibitor at MosBuild 2013. At the company’s stand, Colorobbia presented a comprehensive range of materials and colours: enamel, crystallins and engobe for creating matte, glossy, silk-like, transparent and imitation metal surfaces; as well as transparent, matte and opaque frit. One of Colorobbia’s main products is pigments. They differ in saturation and variety of colour, and provide easy dispersion and fast staining power. In addition, the company introduced a series of materials whose technical and aesthetic characteristics give ceramic tiles additional value. They include grain coatings and mixes for decorating during baking.

INTERIOR

A home treatment facility A frantic pace of life, constant stresses, deterioration of the environment and other factors are making people look for new ways of fighting illness in the 21st century. One such method is salt therapy, or rather new developments based on its main principles. The modern Salt Cave halotherapy complex is a cave of salt crystals in the house. Salt treatment involves spending some time in a microclimate saturated with particles of salt - this is the best method of halotherapy. It is particularly effective for ARVI, asthma, allergies, and bronchial and skin diseases. The greatest healing effect in the salt room (halotherapy room) is achieved in conjunction with special psychotherapeutic influence. A cozy and relaxing atmosphere is created by the design of the treatment space, which imitates the interior of natural salt caves. The walls, floor and ceiling are covered with natural salt slab carved from rock salt (Tyretsk, Iletsk and Artemov deposits). The integrity of the crystal lattice from the ancient rock is preserved in the slab. This gives it not only a unique design but also significantly higher medical-prophylactic efficacy. Salt slab is able to naturally disinfect and ionise the air, unlike many

air purifiers and ionisers. These benefits also apply to the furniture made of salt blocks. In addition, all the items of furniture and decoration can be made with a combination of extra systems: light systems with changing colour spectrum; a system of special long-wavelength emitters for saturating the air with sodium aeroions and for creating a relaxing, warm surface. The extra systems can be controlled remotely or using a Smart Home system, with an interface based on a tablet computer. The unique technology of salt application allows you to imitate various elements of design: caves, stalactites and stalagmites. The smooth white colour of the walls with unique salt pattern, combined with the muted decorative lighting and lack of external noise, create a feeling of being in a real salt cave. All this creates a positive environment, making a stay in the salt room not only beneficial but also enjoyable.


CONCEPT l DESIGN

A feature of the AGG-03 halo generator is the presence of a bactericidal air purification system, which is supplied for ionised aerosol. In this way, the maximum therapeutic effect is achieved by immersion in the aero dispersed environment saturated with dry, highly dispersed ionised aerosol of sodium, with a stable low humidity and a constant comfortable temperature from +22 to +24 degrees celsius.

Development by Alutech Group The facade solution of the Fregat [NEO] residential complex in Krasnoyarsk is based on the ALT F50 system from ALUTECH, while for the windows and doors of the ALT and W C4862 systems have been used. ALT F50 is a classic example of a time-tested facade column-beam system. Owing to the new hub solutions the system makes it possible to realise the most anime's ideas of architects and has already established itself as a reliable product at sites of varying complexity. Facades based on the F50 ALT system are notable not only for their appearance but also their excellent technical characteristics, which have been confirmed by laboratory testing. The heat transfer resistance of the facade meets the high requirements for thermal insulation of building envelopes and amounts to 1 m2 ° c/W. The ALT C48 system can be used to manufacture structures of exterior and interior doors, automatic sliding doors, entrance groups, anterooms, shop windows and interior partitions. The series of window profiles with furniture ‘euro-groove’ can be used for windows with various types of opening. The ALT C48 system has a variety of joint connections and simple assembly. The optimal ratio of geometric and strength properties of the profiles provides reliable long-term operation of structures based on the ALT C48 system.

The ALT W62 thermal insulated system is a series of profiles with 62 mm mounting depth, designed for the manufacture of window, door and semi-translucent configurations and structures of various degree of complexity, meeting the strictest technical thermo-and sound insulation requirements. The system is based on combined profiles consisting of two interconnected aluminium profiles with the help of two elements made of polyamide reinforced with fiberglass. Combination of two materials enables the manufacturing of thermal insulated profiles that ensure good performance of the static constructions and sound joint connections.

Elite wooden windows and doors from Germany The elite windows and doors of KNEER GmbH are produced at three factories in Germany that are equipped with the latest automated equipment, thereby virtually eliminating the impact of human error on the quality of the wooden windows and doors. KNEER GmbH products are known for consistent quality, regardless of the series, year of production, and so on. The wooden windows have a special treatment applied to them to increase their working life: • an impregnation protects the wood from damaging fungi and mould, reduces moisture differences in the wood, and permanently preserves the quality of the wood surface. • a primer helps create reliable adhesion of the upper layers of the coating to the painted surface. • painting is necessary to control the moisture content of the wood, making it easier to maintain the wooden window. All the best wooden windows are made with the use of new painting systems: weather-resistant and environmentally friendly water-soluble acrylic paints with very short drying time in nautral conditions. The production process is fully automated. For modern wooden windows there are a number of optional accessories: mosquito nets, blinds, roller shutters and other options. The windows can be equipped with an alarm system, and can be controlled using a remote or fixed console. You can also choose any colour from the RAL catalogues.

Architectural ceramic facade panels The Russian company Ceramics Terracotta offers its own brand, Ceramics Terracotta, and is the exclusive distributor of Favemanc ceramic facade panels from Spain. The Ceramics Terracotta range is made from terracotta clay of the highest quality using modern, highprecision equipment in the factory of Sociedade de Cer창mica Ladrilhos S.A. in Portugal. The panels have been certified and meet all building codes in the EU and Russia. Ceramics Terracotta products combine a high strength cellular material with the natural beauty and warmth of terracotta. A growing number of architects are using this technology not only for designing new buildings, but also for the reconstruction and restoration of old buildings, where it provides additional aesthetic advantages, along with flexibility of design and the ability to make virtually any shape. The use of Ceramics Terracotta ventilated facade gives advantages in heat insulation, as cellular ceramics offer natural thermal protection of a building, and the continuous ventilation of air inside the structure helps keep a stable temperature. It is estimated that with the use of a ventilated facade you can reduce energy consumption and, as a consequence, achieve energy savings of 25 % compared to traditionally finished walls. A ventilated facade of cellular ceramic creates a barrier that improves the acoustic properties of sound absorption by 6 dB, which corresponds to a 50 % reduction of noise inside the building. Ventilated facade technology enables the installation of technical lines (pipes, cables, telecommunication cables, water and gas) inside the facade, hidden from view. Ceramics Terracotta panels, with water-repellent coating, allow you to create facades that do not require maintenance, as this is done by rain water. Ceramics Terracotta panels are made by extruding terracotta clay through profiled holes in a matrix, followed by baking, while combining and using a mixture of natural clay and firing temperatures to gain a unique range of natural terracotta colours. In addition to natural surface types, the panels can be painted and glazed. The colour range is very diverse. The surface of the panels can be finished with a textured coating of imitation stone or rustic coating. Patterning in conjunction with special profiling produces a skilful imitation of any type of surface. A highly durable, indelible coating is applied before the baking of the ceramic. All this, combined with selected translucent structures, makes Ceramics Terracotta an ideal building solution for modern architecture.

ORIENT colour Tarkett, one of the leading flooring manufacturers, has introduced a new colour, ORIENT, to the designer vinyl tile collection Art Vinyl NEW AGE. ORIENT is designed in the form of strips styled like wood and combining deep grey shades. The shades can be light, dark, ashen, greyish or cream beige with a white streak of grey or with pink streaks. But the main theme is definitely soft and soothing. The Art Vinyl NEW AGE covering is durable, waterresistant, and resistant to abrasion and dents from the legs of furniture. The elements of the NEW AGE collection are perfectly consistent with one another, and the modular format of the flooring allows you to create different geometric designs, combining and alternating the wood-like and tile-like items.

Aged laminated floors CLASSEN-RUS is the updated Extravagant Dynamic collection with a new surface, Risseiche Da Capo, which is a deep structure of wood with shine. The collection is available in six finishes. A distinctive feature of the collection is the visual and tactile repetition of the structure of the wood fibres with clear cutting of the wood along the length of the boards. The gentle shine of the Heliochrome structure adds a radiant polish to the wood. The Megaloc glue-free laying system, which is extremely easy and fast, is a patented laminate flooring laying system by CLASSEN (European patent EP 1415056). The laying technique is modelled on a tile with a locking element that allows you to combine ease of laying with high stability of cross joint. When fastening the panels the locking element goes into another slot and this ensures a stable joint. All the Extravagant collections have a V-bevel on all four sides, so that they look like natural wooden planks when laid. To the edge of Extravagant laminate is applied a water resistant protective layer called Isowaxx. The Extravagant laminate collections are made from eco-friendly wood with PEFC certification. The guarantee period for all the Extravagant collections is 15 years (for residential buildings).
