The designers opted for contemporary furnishings and fittings, a sophisticated lighting system and a complete restyling of the spaces, with special touches to give the rooms – characterised by their high ceilings – a special atmosphere. And amongst these special touches the coverings stand out for their superb quality. The entrance, foyer, reception, bar, wine cellar, restaurant and winter garden all have parquet flooring made from very special types of wood characterised by their unique finish and high resistance to wear and foot traffic. In the conference rooms, corridors and bedrooms, on the other hand, the designers decided to install high quality carpet, with each room having its own individual colour and pattern; details that transmit wellbeing to a client, with good soundproofing and a sense of tranquillity and warmth.
SPECIAL COVERINGS FOR A REFINED HOTEL
The contractor wanted to use exclusively Mapei systems to install around 2,000 m2 of wall and floor coverings – indeed, Mapei was able to offer manifold adhesives, primers, levelling and smoothing compounds with very low emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and with Blue Angel sign.
Furthermore, Mapei specialists provided on-site tailored recommendation for choosing the right products to refurbish the old substrates.
The first step was to treat the substrates with ECO PRIM PU 1K TURBO moisture-curing, rapid-drying polyurethane primer in combination with ECO PRIM T PLUS, acrylic primer in water dispersion. Local repairs have been carried out with PLANIPATCH, fine-graded cementitious levelling compound mixed with LATEX PLUS instead of water. Cracks have been sealed with PRIMER MF. At this point the substrates were levelled with ULTRAPLAN ECO PLUS self-levelling smoothing and levelling compound (produced and marketed in Germany). Once this had dried, around 900 m2 of wooden flooring were laid using ULTRABOND ECO S968 1K one-component, silylated polymer-based, solvent and plasticizer free adhesive and free of solvent content.
ULTRABOND ECO 170 high and fast grab adhesive in water dispersion was then used to install 1,100 m2 of textile floor coverings. The next step for the designers and owners is to completely renovate the sport resort next to the hotel.
