A World Champion swimmer with more than 100 titles under his belt, David Meca is no doubt a born competitor who loves challenges. That’s why the construction of his new home was just one more exciting test for him.
It was a very special comprehensive renovation project involving the top floor apartment of a singular building located in the middle of Gran Vía, one of the most emblematic streets in the Spanish capital, which required unique decor and materials to reflect the spirit of this great swimmer. His most personal journey yet, he has been working on it with great enthusiasm for the last year.
Having studied Architecture while living in the United States, he initially had a very clear idea for the design and construction of his new home. His interest and passion for decoration also helped him create an elegant and very stylish home. It’s a bright top-floor apartment with spacious windows featuring open areas and whitish tones.
“I think a home has to be very personal and you have to feel good in your home. Not to mention the fact it should be a bit of a reflection of yourself.”
In order to get the desired result, David was quite sure from the very beginning that he would choose Neolith® for the kitchen and bathroom in his new apartment as two of the most important areas of any home.
The waterfall island cladded in Neolith® Calacatta stands out in the swimmer’s impeccable open kitchen which connects to the living room and spectacular terrace for a 360º view of Madrid.
Inspired by the best Calacatta slabs from Carrara, this model offers a distinguished yet modern and minimalist design with fine greyish veins over a pure white background.
“Neolith is beautiful Sintered Stone but also robust, strong and elegant.”
These unique characteristics are what also made him choose Neolith® for the bathroom where the walls, furnishings and even the shower have been cladded using the same Calacatta model in a Silk finish for a feeling of continuity and wellbeing.
David Meca was able to create a pleasant and luxurious atmosphere of peace throughout the home by choosing materials as extraordinary as Neolith®, which has been integrated with the same taste and passion he’s known for.
