Cosentino Vancouver Centre, Burnaby, BC
Larigakis Architecture worked with the Spanish building materials company, Cosentino, to create this new centre for them. The project includes a showroom, offices, training facility and distribution centre within an existing warehouse in Burnaby.
Cosentino is the world’s largest manufacturer of solid surface materials. Their products include well known quartz countertop line, Silestone, as well as the flooring and cladding material called Dekton. These materials were used throughout the project on floors, walls and in millwork to exhibit the materials’ diverse finishes and uses.
The new facilities are consistent with the company’s image as a producer of high quality, beautiful and precision-made building products. Each detail of the design was carefully considered. Lighting for the display of products was important with slabs displayed almost as works of art. The design is both highly functional and robust serving diverse purposes from display to warehouse distribution.
