Grey Venezia Marble in the Gran Vía de Colón

Features

GREY VENEZIA

This project, by the Granada architect Muñoz Miranda, was undertaken entirely in Grey Venezia and involved the pavements on both sides of the Gran Vía de Colón avenue and the junctions with the perpendicular streets.

The paving consists of a band of some 9,500 m² for pedestrians, made of slabs 8 cm (1,300 m²) and 5 cm thick (7,600 m²) with the approaches to the zebra crossings of textured paving 5 cm thick 5 cm (600 m²) as well as another band of 1,500 m² on slopes consisting of large format thick pieces (±320 m³) separating the traffic and pedestrian areas and housing the planted areas, lampposts and canopies and other street furniture.

The separation between traffic and pedestrians is defined with a gutter to collect water on both sides (2,100 m). All this paving material has a textured finish that exponentially increases resistance to slipping.

AMBAR and DARK EMPERADOR

The Alameda Park runs along the Alameda Principal from the council offices to the sea. Better known as the Malaga Park, its latest remodelling used some 23,000 m² of marble in various very thick formats. Most of these were of flamed or cut Ambar marble in special formats, paving slabs, kerbs of various thicknesses, benches and fountains. This action included the pavements in some adjacent streets. Dark Emperador paving slabs were also installed, 10 cm thick, along the Paseo de los Curas.

GREY VENEZIA , CREMA MARFIL, AMBAR, red travertine,  white and green marble

The main shopping street in Malaga is the Calle Larios (6,500 m²). The pavement of this impressive space consists of a traffic band of cut and bevelled Grey Venezia delimited at both sides by a line of Crema Marfil guttering to collect water. All of this is 10 cm thick to ensure the material’s integrity despite the heavy transit and traffic. Crema Marfil in the pedestrian area is interrupted by perpendicular bands of white and green marble and longitudinal bands in 10 x 10 x 10 cm blocks of Grey Venezia and the finish against the façades. Sold white marble benches were also installed throughout the pedestrian area.

This fine street ends at the Plaza de la Constitución (4,500 m²), where the predominate  material is red travertine, 120/90 x 70 x 13 cm and blocks of 15 x 15 x 13 cm thick, accompanied by a kerb of Ambar marble that includes solid bollards to prevent vehicle access.
