Natural stone by L’Antic Colonial for the Plaza Mayor de Vila-real and the Glorieta de Sagunto square-PORCELANOSA GROUP.

tileThe main square of Sagunto, in the Valencia Region, will be given a totally new facelift and equipped with paving and other features from the Basalto Java range by L’Antic Colonial.

Architects’ studio vnbarquitectos, based in the same town, has been commissioned with the project. The space in this large square will be distributed into a series of 
zones, all of which are intended for different uses and age groups. 
However, every effort has been made to eliminate all of the existing 
barriers, to create an open, airy space that invites the population 
to use it. It will feature a library, Wi-Fi zone, garden areas and a recreation of the Convent of San Francisco, whose remains lie under the subsoil of the square.

L’Antic Colonial will provide over 4,500m2 of natural stone paving, together with edging materials, coverings and other architectural features, all from the Java Flameado range.

L’Antic Colonial has worked on other projects involving public spaces in 2009, specializing in large-scale outdoor ones like parks, squares or gardens. Examples are Plaza del Ayuntamiento in Villarreal, which has a special sentimental and cultural value, or the square of Banca March in Palma de Mallorca, using new paving in keeping with the architecture of the building. L’Antic Colonial, the specialist in natural stone, offers a wide range of materials for use outdoors and indoors, including marble, slate, granite, travertine, limestone and sandstone.
