The winner of the Quinquennial Tile Award, the international prize created by Fincibec Group for works of architecture and design made with ceramic products by MonocibecCentury and Naxos, the three companies of the group, is on one of the most beautiful stretches of the coast of South Africa.


Villa Hesquin, built at Wilderness, Western Cape at the end of 2015, is a creation of the architecture firm Bespoke design by Eddie da Silva.

The project features large glazings inserted in a structure with a light, luminous image, in spite of the dominant black color.

The ceramic surfaces were selected for harmonious insertion, in harmony with the stylistic approach of the design.

The wood effect of Woodtime by Monocibec and the cement and stone textures of Proxima by Century, sharing the gray color indicated by the designer as the main tone of the interiors, bring the right touch of warmth and personality to the spaces.

Stiles of Steve Joubert, the importer of Fincibec, worked in close collaboration with the architect and the manufacturer of the ceramic materials.


The fifth edition of the Quinquennial Tile Award is now under way.

Until 31 March 2018 it is possible to submit projects in the fields of residential, public and commercial/industrial architecture, built from 1/1/2013 to 31/12/2017. For the guidelines:
