House at Quinta da Beloura

Sintra, Portugal

Located at Quinta da Beloura, Sintra, this house was supplied with 5 different materials in separate areas. The Architect, responsable for both project and construction of the residence, chose marbles, limestones and granites, wisely using important factors such as resistance, beauty and price.

For the kitchen the client selected the Black Impala granite for its resistance and colour shade. Straight lines in pieces of 40*40cm on the floor and kitchen tops made out in the same material. All polished and sealed.

For the social bathroom the choice was for Beige Travertine. With its natural holes dully filled with transparent resin and polished final finishing, this material covers the floor and walls of the area and a vanity top of 4cm thickness (made by 2cm+2cm glued material with a perfect result).

On the remaining bathrooms of the house, Bianco Carrara marble was applied in its polished finishing. The paving and walls of the areas were made in cut-to-size pieces in such a way that the veining structure of the marble was maintained: our preparation and drawings optimized the natural beauty of that stone.

In all the common areas: stairs, corridors, entrance hall, etc, the Architect chose the national limestone Ataíja Cream. It is a material that, besides a cream uniform tone, also combines important factors such as price and resistance. In fact, this is the portuguese limestone with the lower absoption coefficient (similar to the one you can get on marbles) and a geological structure rather resistant to abrasion.

For the fireplace the client also prefered Ataíja Cream. This choice allowed some uniformity and continuity to the different areas of the house and accomplished the goal of having a modern-trace fireplace with a neutral and light colour shade. The goals were accomplished and the results were approved!
