The Club Herradura project is
the winner of the 2020 edition of the Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition in the
residential category. We ask the Mexican design studio Bolivar Arquitectos to
tell us about the project created with the Q-Stone collection by Provenza
are a multidisciplinary architectural and design firm involved in different
kind of projects from residential, commercial, institutional, hospitality.
This house is located right in front of a golf course, so we developed a linear scheme so most of the areas of the house took advantage of the views not just no the green but to the surrounded mountains. We designed this house in 3 leves with very clean lines ,to reach a great sense of transparency between the indoors and the outdoors a 50 feet long steel structure was putted in the façade facing the golf course, this allowed us to get great open views.
the past years we have worked with minimal materials for the exterior 85% should be the
same material and then we contrast with another material in this case we used
as our main material Q stone gray nature in opus format which give us a tremendous
result in terms of image, it is so natural that you can not even see the joints
between each piece. In
my opinion gray is the most neutral of the colors since you can move to warms
as weel to the cold color palette.
Q-Stone by Provenza coverings have an extraordinary quality, style and design, which confer a supreme personality and elegance to the space as a whole: the reflections of light that dance on each individual tile give the project an incomparable spaciousness.
Low maintenance is a key element when a material for the hospitality industry is chosen. So, material with these characteristics will be the winners.
