A Sikh temple in the city of Tuto Mazara, Punjab State, has been renovated and expanded. With the aim of experimenting with new techniques and materials, the designer P.J. Singh decided to use the Corian® solid surface for the cladding of the internal walls, combined with natural stone – Agra Red sandstone – engraved and inlaid with mother-of-pearl.
Since the temple is a busy place every day, it was important to find a material that would be easy to clean, with technical and aesthetic qualities that would last in time. Because the ceremonies involve chanting, excellent acoustic performance was also a must. Corian® turned out to be the perfect solution.
The project for the temple in Tuto Mazara features the use of about 900 square meters of Corian® in the Glacier White color.
The solid surface for the interior walls has floral engraving.
