Calle Lealtad, a street in the capital of Cantabria autonomous community, is home to one of Santander’s oldest construction and real estate companies: Cobo Mantecón. This company has been operating since 1965, providing services based on a philosophy of quality and excellence. Characteristics that have ensured a consolidated market position, enabling the company to operate from two premises.
In order to continue expanding and offering its customers the very best service, just over three months ago the company decided to revamp its offices. The versatility Starwood offers was the reason behind the construction company’s decision to use our material for the entire façade. It must be remembered that despite its wood effect and texture, our product’s ceramic features make it suitable for interior and exterior installation. Indeed, it is extremely resistant to high temperatures, as well as rain and humidity. This characteristic is essential in a city like Santander that is known for its fairly wet climate.
Cobo Mantecón opted for the Minnesota Honey model after previously discovering it at Santander Cerámica showrooms. A design that lends an air of modernity to any space and is guaranteed to create an impact. Indeed a walk along the street reveals that the company’s offices boast one of the most striking façades.
The irregular layout of the pieces is one of the most outstanding features of this wall. There is no structured arrangement for the joints between the tiles, although, the overall effect is completely harmonious.
The Minnesota Honey tone was the unanimous choice of the entire staff. It’s ideal contrast with the company’s sign and logo in shades of white. Everyone agreed that that combination of soft brown tones shows off to perfection the knots and veins featured on every piece.
