Our team of engineers, architects and installation experts share your passion for architecture and beautiful buildings. And we’re ready to help you create a stunning, sustainable porcelain facade project.
Here are a few examples by creative designers like you…
The Clare is a majestic building that is located in the heart of the Upper East Side in Manhattan, New York. Located at 301 East 61st Street, the Clare has 19 stories and 30 residential units. The condominium’s design focuses on the use of natural light in every space, and its exterior features a bright beige color.
Unique to this project, Porcelanosa was able to develop custom porcelain panels that emulated the same look as the natural limestone that was used throughout the base of the building.
After completing the project, the architect Manuel Glas stated, “the open joint ventilated system, ease of installation, and durability of porcelain… inspired new ways to treat the facade.”
Other Porcelanosa tile and bath products are featured throughout the walls, floors, bathrooms, and balconies of the units within the building.
The Nevins is a modern high-rise residential building that is located in the trendy Boerum Hill area of Brooklyn, New York. It is close to the Fort Greene Park, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and the Brooklyn Bridge.
The 21 story building houses 73 different residences that range from studios to 3 bedroom units that take up entire floors.
Issac & Stern Architects worked with Porcelanosa to find the perfect texture and color for their façade design. The Nevins is completely covered in 21,000 square feet of Porcelanosa’s concrete-look Dover Arena porcelain panels, which were cut down to 12 3/8” x 47” panels specifically for the project.
Hudson 36 is a newly constructed high-rise building on 36th Street in Manhattan, New York. It is a 39 story multifamily building that has over 250 rental units, retail space, and more – all with stunning views of the Hudson River.
The building is located in the up and coming Hudson Yards area, and is within walking distance of the Vessel, the High Line, many shops and restaurants in Hudson Yards, Penn Station, and the Javits Center.
The building’s façade features over 50,000 square feet of Porcelanosa’s Ark White Bright large format porcelain panels, which features a custom developed color that was created with Ismael Leyva Architects for this project.
The protruding bright, white facade accents many windows, glass panels, and metal louvres, and truly stands out amongst its urban surroundings.
