Tiara Shopping Centre - Moscow - Russia
Resistance, impermeability, and long-term unaltered aesthetic quality are the main performance features of FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti technical ceramics, which are increasingly chosen for projects involving large flows of people and machinery.
These projects include urban architectures such as hotels, airports, stations, hospitals, and shopping centres, all construction projects that involve prolonged use of flooring, constant stresses, and the need for daily maintenance.
The Tiara Shopping Centre, located at Michurinskij Prospekt 27 in Moscow, takes advantage of the properties of FMG ceramic slabs for both flooring in the interior environments and the ventilated façade on the exterior.
This choices demonstrates the superior reliability of the ceramic materials and the prestige of the Italian ceramics made by Iris Ceramica Group, qualities that have been recognized internationally for decades. With a commercial surface of 7,000 sqm (total area 15,000 sqm), the Tiara Shopping Centre is a modern commercial complex, well connected and easily reached both by car and with public transportation.
The Tiara project in Michurinskij Prospekt envisages the creation of an elegant, upscale shopping centre that in addition to the shops also offers entertainment services: restaurants, cinemas, exhibition spaces, and sales of local agricultural products and international specialities.
The FMG materials contributed to creating a very refined atmosphere, typical of the most high-end gathering places, thanks to the choice to use Maxfine marble-effect slabs.
The slabs laid in the interior, from the Alps Heart and Calacatta collections, respond to criteria of charm and elegance, and the luminosity of the entire environment is enhanced by the white colour and the traditional prestige inherent to marble, here featuring original veining that runs throughout the large slab.
The Crema Marfil Extra chosen for the ventilated façade combines the unparalleled aesthetic and technical qualities of FMG slabs, giving the building extensive benefits in terms of durability and resistance to pollutants, exposure to sunlight, and temperature changes.
Keeping the wall structure intact thanks to its non-absorbency, the FMG ceramic surface laid as a ventilated façade considerably extends the stability of the complex, from the technical point of view as well as the equally important aspect of its aesthetic impact in the urban context.
