Dekton®, the ultra-compact surface by Cosentino Group, shows all its potential, versatility and infinite architectural and design possibilities at the “Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar”, a project that has already become an emblematic and broad-reaching project, for this revolutionary product, fruit of the innovative capacity of the multinational from Almeria. The Academy is conceived as high performance centre with the most advanced technology, maximum comfort and spectacular facilities in which Dekton® is a key constructive and unifying element through the centre.

Cosentino Group has fitted over 40,000m2 of this innovative material in all available thicknesses and applications. Dekton® can be found inside the Academy for panelling, flooring, worktops, stairs and skirting, especially emphasizing its use on the façades of the two main buildings of the complex, the swimming pools and the spa area.

This project has become a real showcase of the wide range of colours of Dekton®, using up to twelve different colours of the material, such as “Domoos”, “Keon”, “Korus”, “Trilium”, “Ventus” or “Zenith”, among others. Furthermore, as proof of the company’s involvement in the project, and the close relationship established between Cosentino and the project managers, led by the Catalan architect, David Iglesias, two colours were developed especially for the project, one in a blue tone and the other in white.

The campus boasts more than 24,000 m2 of built up areas, mainly distributed between the residence, training school and different sports facilities: 26 tennis courts, 10 padel tennis courts, 2 squash courts, 3 swimming pools, regulation football pitch, athletics track, 3 sports halls and a fitness centre.

The common areas of the complex are also of note, such as changing rooms, cafeterias, clinic, spa and green areas. All areas have been fitted with Dekton® ultra compact surfacing as it is a versatile material that can meet different requirements in terms of format, thickness, colour, finishes and its high resistance and durability.

Fruit of this commitment, the Spanish company also contributed to the project with its other reference Silestone®, and its products in natural stone, thus showing the variety of Cosentino’s portfolio of products and solutions. This has largely contributed to the company becoming an official sponsor of the “Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar”. Specifically, Silestone® is present with 130 shower trays in “Blanco Zeus” and “Suede” finish. This very same tonality and texture was also chosen for the more than 100 bathroom worktops with integrated “Elegance” sinks, from the “Cosentino Bath Collection”.

The “Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar” has been selected as the best national project in the latest edition of the prestigious Macael Awards organised by the Association of Marble Businessmen Andalusia.
