Atlas Concorde porcelain tiles play a leading role in the indoor and outdoor design of the new Emerald Zanzibar Resort & Spa, a 5L star deluxe facility of the Leading Hotels of the World.
Designed by DeLoguArchitecture, an international architectural firm based in Rome, Emerald Zanzibar Resort & Spa, with its variety of environments and 250 suites mostly overlooking the sea, provides stage for the various earthy effects of the complete Atlas Concorde product system.
Inaugurated on December 1, 2022, Emerald Zanzibar Resort & Spa covers an area of 10 hectares along the coast featuring white sand beaches at the village of Matemwe and opposite the island of Mnemba.
Pathways and broad outdoor spaces shine thanks to the special treatment of the natural stone used in the Blockcollection, which has a distinct material strength perfect for shining in the sunlight.
For the areas around the pools the choice fell on the Klif and Marvel Stone collections, also used in some areas of the interior, exploiting their non-slip surfaces and resistance, along with their respective interpretations of stone: Klif with its shades of gray and textured surface and Marvel Stone with its look replicating the eternal elegance of marble.
Used in multiple hues, wood-effect floor and wall tiles from the Etic and Etic Pro collections were chosen for various areas of the resort, from the Asiatique restaurant, where they play a key role in creating the venue’s overall style, to the convention center, playing with the dark colors of matte rosewood and the brightness of varnished oak. The intense natural and authentic character of wood comes alive on the surface of the porcelain tiles, conveying the timeless appeal of the original material in a contemporary design. And so it is that the rooms, kids club, and some of the shops in the resort were transformed into spaces with a simple, welcoming esthetic. The combination with the Klif and Trust collections, inspired by the earthy strength and rich details of natural stone, translates the union of Western and Eastern culture that is the common thread of the entire project into a style of interior design, where the refinement of an avant-garde look is blended with the allure of the magic typical of age-old local traditions.
From the Boost world, the set of collections that feature the concrete effect in a variety of looks with a clear industrial vibe, the Boostcollection was selected for the flooring of Emerald Zanzibar Resort & Spa's main "Aqua" restaurant, which explores the color scale of grays, and Venti Boost, which interprets the tradition of encaustic tiles, for its distinct decorative attitude.
Emerald Zanzibar Resort & Spa opted for the Marvel, Marvel Dream, and Marvel Stone collections, chosen to bring the absolute elegance of this material to the spa and areas surrounding the pools, among others.
Atlas Plan, a brand specialized in large kitchen, table, and furnishing slabs, which together with Atlas Concorde floor and wall tiles and Atlas Concorde Habitat bathroom fixtures makes up the complete Atlas Concorde product system, was chosen to clad the sinks in the luxurious suites with a pool.
