Concept: As it is integrated into the hospital’s historic compound as an independent building, Roca wanted its collaboration with Kālida to combine design and functionality both in bathroom spaces and kitchen area, available for families who come looking for a place to find psychosocial support. Thus, along with the modern Rock-Art tiles, the Sofia basins, the compact Meridian WC or the Lanta and Targa faucets for bath and kitchen, respectively, practical accessories such as the Luna mirror, the Nuova towel rail or the Hotel’s range for public spaces coexist in this project. In addition to this we find the Access footrests and grab rails, an essential safety assurance in spaces for people with reduced mobility. Following the essence of the original modernist project, Kālida needed to respond to all needs with user-friendly solutions that combined beauty and accessibility. Not only did Roca provide all spaces with efficient, safe and comfortable designs, it also contributed with kitchen solutions in a project that is proof of the company’s commitment to society.

Other projects

The Tower has been re-painted several times since the initial construction. The original colour during creation “Venetian Red”, was a bright red. In 2014, with the remodelling focused mainly on the first floor, Venetian Red was used as the central theme of the project. According to the architect Alain Moatti, the choice of Roca was backed up by the values of design, technology and quality, as well as by the high resistance of Roca products which make them ideal for installation in public spaces with a high influx of visitors.
