Progetto esterno dello yacht Fuoriserie Kanga 40
At the beginning of 2017 I’ve been contacted by the architect Sabrina Iorio on behalf of the New York firm “Architecture at Large” of the architect Rafael Decadenas. As I said it was a very unique request, because I supposed to realize a bathroom in Tadelakt on board of a luxury yacht, in particular 4 out of 12 bathroom that were inside the ship, including the Captain’s bathroom. As I could noticed in the moment of the first site inspection, the total amount of the surfaces to be worked was approximately 50 square meters.
The particularity of that project wasn’t on its shapes or dimensions, but in its positions. Is very uncommon to work in a yacht bathroom, and such an unusual work can hide big issues for a material delicate as Tadelakt is.
On a general level, for a successful work the condition in which operate are crucial, it must be assured to be able to work with the right humidity level and to have the right spaces, because it will be necessary to operate on the floor and on the ceiling.
Once evaluated the general conditions, is necessary to look for which movable components can hide risks for the perfect Tadelakt realization that last in time, things that is really important in such works, where the expectation of the customer is the high quality and the care of every single detail.
The work on this massive ship, a 40,80 meters Fuoriserie Kanga by Baglietto that was inside the shipyards Cantieri Navali Cerri, very important company that operates since 1997 and located in La Spezia (Italy), started on march 2017 and was carried out during the ship building process. Let’s see the different phases that led to those luxury Tadelakt bathroom.
