Case study: Atlas Concorde sets the tone at San Antonio Resort

With the aim of creating a harmonious fusion between man and nature to amplify the beauty of the light reflected off the Ionian Sea and the pure white local architecture, porcelain floor and wall tiles were selected from the Atlas Concorde Boost World collection at this Greek island resort…

Overlooking the Ionian Sea in the heart of the Greek island of Corfu, the San Antonio Resort is the perfect blend of elegance and wellbeing. The way it relates to the landscape represents a lifestyle where everything contributes to creating beauty, in a perfect balance between nature and architecture. The choice of materials is decisive when pursuing this harmony, and Atlas Concorde surfaces are the key to establishing an interaction between the design and the surrounding environment, with the aim of making the boundary between natural and artificial less and less perceptible.

Atlas Concorde collections respond to this need by creating a sensory exchange of light and color with the landscape, while at the same time managing to make their own powerful stylistic statement. For the San Antonio Resort in Corfu, the troweled concrete-effect porcelain tiles proved to be the perfect choice for both the outdoor areas and the spaces adjacent to the bar, guaranteeing both beauty and superior technical performance. The ceramic surfaces of the Boost Collection, the first member of the Boost World family – the set of collections inspired by the endless looks of the concrete effect – are presented here in a muted coloring that has helped create a refined, original setting, in harmony with the Greek landscape.

In fact, the concrete-effect flooring was able to establish a balanced dialogue with the surrounding materials and colours, creating a total look with a striking visual impact, not to mention a surface that is both safe and easy to clean and maintain. The Grip finish, also used for outdoor areas adjacent to the pool, complements the tiles’ beauty with excellent performance as they reduce the risk of slips and falls, proving essential for a high-traffic area that is often wet. Atlas Concorde’s slip-resistant ceramic surfaces are also resistant to frost, stains, dirt, and bacteria, making them easy to clean and maintain.
