Agrob Buchtal-Letter | 01/2018
 
Dear Madam/Sir,

How international and versatile the fields of application of architectural ceramics can be, is represented by the two projects we are showing you this time: the Oasia Hotel in Singapore by WOHA and Patricia Urquiola as well as a building ensemble in the Lithuanian city of Kaunas by Kita Kryptis. They are making a point on how pool and façade ceramics contribute in creating extraordinary architectural concepts. On a completely other level, the new DryTile systems serves a distinct cause – facilitating a much faster and a from all points of view more efficient tile laying.

Kind regards,
Your AGROB BUCHTAL team
Tropical skyscraper by WOHA and Patricia Urquiola

The Oasia Hotel, designed by WOHA, in the central business district Singapore is by all means and standards a unique project, redefining what a high-rise can be in humid tropical climates. Aside from the red façade – soon to be completely green – the sky gardens also offer greenery, fresh air, and opportunities for natural cross-ventilation, as well as representing the most visibly sustainable and delightful, aspects of the building. While WOHA can be credited for the architecture of the tower itself, the actual design of the sky gardens is the work of Spanish designer and architect Patricia Urquiola, who was responsible for all interiors as well as the outdoor spaces of the hotel.
 
Castle view in Lithuania

Near the confluence of Neman and Neris Rivers, the architectural office Kita Kryptis was commissioned to design several residential buildings. They are placed in what is becoming the new Piliamiestis quarter, located opposite the monumental Old Castle of Kaunas. This historical Castle is not only centre stage in many of the views from the apartments, but it also formed a major reference for the architecture of the new buildings.

Collection 2018

The comprehensive new collection from AGROB BUCHTAL and JASBA offers a wide range of wall and floor tiles of various styles. From small mosaics to large sizes. In wood, marble or terrazzo look.
Dry tiling – The innovation

Fast, faster, finished: DryTile, the new dry tiling system with ceramic tiles. What’s special about DryTile is its cork layer which ensures that the tile is firmly suctioned to the floor. No mortar bed,
no adhesive. the inherent weight of the tile presses the cork layer into the subsurface where it bonds tightly and guarantees that everything stays firmly in place. Enhanced by decoupling with floating installation, cork also ensures increased impact sound insulation.
