GREEN | Lea Ceramiche | Hotel Milla Montis

Between nature and artifice: Lea Ceramiche’s high-performance surfaces for Hotel Milla Montis

Located in a small alpine village in South Tyrol, Milla Montis is a new hotel designed to blend in with the surrounding landscape and to constantly dialogue with the natural environment.

Conceived by Peter Pichler Architecture, the hotel is a tangible example of sustainable construction enhanced by a refined and contemporary design. The modern building features four staggered volumes characterised by black larch cladding and large curved cuts on the façades that create a close relationship between inside and outside, between artifice and nature.

In line with the project’s ecological concept, eco-friendly materials are used in all the spaces. For example, Lea Ceramiche’s Waterfall collection was chosen for the wall tiles, a ceramic product that realistically reinterprets slate, a natural stone. Made using only natural raw materials, with recycling of non-ceramic waste and scrap, thanks to heavy investment in the latest production technologies, it is a 100% eco-friendly material. In the Dark Flow colour, Waterfall covers the surfaces of bathrooms and spa areas, adding a natural and elegant touch; resistant and easy to clean, it is also distinguished by its Protect® antibacterial protection, which guarantees maximum hygiene of the spaces. In the 20 mm-thick version, which is stronger and more resistant, it covers the external areas, perfectly integrating with the formal language of the interior in line with the structure’s essential and minimalist style.

PROJECTS | Lea Ceramiche | 520 West 28th NYC by Zaha Hadid Architects

Material and technical qualities coupled with the aesthetic values of Lea Ceramiche’s materials enter the 520 West 28th architectural complex, Zaha Hadid Architects’ first residential project in New York.

The collaboration with the prestigious London-based architecture firm is the latest of many partnerships between Lea Ceramiche and internationally renowned professionals. In recent years the company has worked with firms such as: Studio OMA (Rem Koolhaas with Chris van Duijn and Federico Pompignoli) for the Torre Prada Terrace; Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca and Giovanni La Varra for the Bosco Verticale; Fabio Novembre for Casa Milan: these important collaborations testify to the company’s ability to dialogue with high-end companies, as well as to the quality of its materials and to its extensive catalogue, which enables it to satisfy any style and technical efficiency requirements.

Located between the High Line and 28th Street, the architecturally striking building was designed to dialogue with the lively surrounding urban environment, the Chelsea neighbourhood in Manhattan. The eleven floors, which encompass a total of 39 apartments, each with its own identity and different viewpoints of the neighbourhood, feature a series of volumes that flow into each other, intertwining. The outer envelope, characterized by large glass windows and curved steel lines, is a clear hallmark of the style of the great architect, who won the Pritzker Prize and died prematurely in 2016. The innovative and modern design also distinguishes the building’s interiors, not only the futuristic, over 3 metre-high apartments designed by Jennifer Post Design and West Chin Architects, but also the 25-metre covered swimming pool, the IMAX cinema, the gym, the underground garage with a robotic system, and meticulously designed spaces that have made the futuristic building the new icon of the New York skyline.

Metropolis by Lea Ceramiche is the collection selected for the building’s Back of House areas. Presented in the Tokyo White colour, it creates surfaces with a neutral and bright colour; the series’ essential and contemporary style adapts very harmoniously to the setting, making the spaces airy and welcoming. Metropolis is also characterized by the special Protect antibacterial protection integrated in the material, which guarantees healthy, safe and protected environments, offering a perfect mix of aesthetic pleasure, quality, comfort, functionality and durability.

Stoneglass HD 2022

IC4HD welcomes back to the group STONEGLASS®

STONEGLASS® is a material produced by a process of dissolving and crystallization of silicon particles, very similar to the formation of natural granite. STONEGLASS® retains all the properties of glass intact, and combines them with the qualities of stone. A zero environmental impact product, the material is manufactured through a process that achieves crystallization without the use of resins or solvents, so it can be used with no risk to health and emits no odor. It does not contain any components or substances harmful to health, and it’s completely recyclable.
