In virtue of their perfect planarity, extreme lightness and excellent mechanical properties, LAMINAM large-size ceramic slabs with minimum thickness are the perfect product in the interiors, as wall cladding and flooring in residential and public contexts.
Among the latest reference of the company, particularly interesting are the internal coverings of the new buildings of the University of Sydney Business School signed by Woods Bagot, a world-leading architectural firm with a team of over 800 professionals in the different offices in Australia, Asia, Middle East, Europe and North America.
The vision for the University complex is to create a global, 21st century business Learning environment that fosters productive interactions with the business community, responding to the needs of current and future tertiary students in a compelling model of cutting edge management education.
To this end, Woods Bagot has designed an architectural solution in the form of a series of boxes clustered around social, collaborative “glue” spaces.
For the flooring of the University buildings has been chosen the collection I Naturali Pietre in the finishing Pietra di Savoia Grigia, size 1000x3000mm thickness 5.6 mm that faithfully reproduces the technical essence and aesthetics of the material from which it draws inspiration, revealing textures with high technological value. Its smooth and surprisingly structured surfaces create a strong effect of coherence and continuity merging the spaces between them and thus strenghtening the sense of togetherness and sharing that informs the entire project. The sunlight that reaches the spaces through the large windows and the building’s central skylight is reflected on the floor giving a sense of great luminosity and emphasizing the natural effect of the ceramic surfaces.
