In the centre of Nola, a small town in the province of Naples and a historical, cultural, and commercial centre, a particularly captivating restaurant has opened its doors for the first time.
Habituè - Vin & Cuisine has combined transformations in taste and architecture, in a location which began life as an apartment on the first floor of an eighteenth-century building near Piazza del Duomo.

Studio Arch.O organic architecture, Naples
Handled by the Studio Arch.O firm of architects in Naples, the project involved obtaining planning permission to change a private residential unit into a sophisticated eatery open to the public.
And the 6.5 mm-thick tiles measuring 160×320 cm were the solution chosen by Studio Arch.O, realising that these oversize porcelain stoneware tiles would become a key feature of the interior, giving its spaces elegance and a unique look. Infinito 2.0 was used in two main rooms at Habituè and also the toilets, in the Fior di Bosco version.
The same size was also chosen for the Res Art series in the Pottery line, which completed the supply of floor and wall tiles, lending the bathrooms a high-impact finish.
bakery & hotel (BED-BIKE-BREAD)
Located in the tourist village of Csopak, in Hungary, Buborék Csopak offers a cosy place for cyclists and nature walk enthusiasts to stay all year round, accompanied by various other services (BED-BIKE-BREAD). The building was completely refurbished in June 2022 to create a location that houses not only a bakery, but also a bike shop and a hotel. The upper floor has been repurposed to provide a comfortable place where travellers can stay the night and recharge their batteries (in more ways than one!).
What architects Eszter Bertóty and Edit Móder were aiming for was to create a space that was both functional and inviting, featuring a clean contemporary design born from a fusion of Scandinavian and Mediterranean moods.
Bathed in neutral tones, the interiors are furnished with modern furniture with natural materials predominating throughout. Inside the building then, the bakery's characteristic counter, the fireplace, and the bathrooms walls are all tiled with Ceramica Fondovalle porcelain stoneware from the Res Art collection, in the Talc, Pottery and Mud shades.Res art

Small but full of life, provincial but steeped in history, and filled with tourist attractions, Tartu is held to be the 'spiritual' capital of Estonia and is also home to one of the oldest universities in Northern Europe, with students making up one seventh of the city's population.Shards
ALEJA shopping centre in Ljubljana
The Aleja shopping centre was constructed with materials of the very highest quality. Ceramica Fondovalle was chosen to cover the interiors of the delicatessen sector of the Interspar hypermarket with concrete effect porcelain stoneware tiles from the Portland collection, in Lassen colour and 120x60 size.
Thanks to the striking patterning which resembles hand-trowelled concrete, the overall visual impact is extremely attractive. The simple, neutral colour adds value to the location, transforming the area into a small corner to be savoured with the eyes.Portland
