Enjoying views over the Adriatic Sea and just a stone’s throw from the medieval town of Rovinj, architects working on Croatia’s new Lone Hotel were intent on specifying the most luxurious, high quality fixtures and fittings throughout the five-star complex, which is why they turned to Geberit when it came to sourcing the most suitable piping and sanitary systems.
With its sweeping rows of terraces, the Hotel Lone looks like a pleasure ship surrounded by the forest and offers 236 rooms and 12 suites, as well as three restaurants and large conference facilities with four conference rooms, meeting rooms and a VIP lounge.
Architects for this prestigious project, 3LHD, relied on Geberit Know-How for a great many elements of the hotel’s design. Geberit piping systems feature throughout the six-storey Design Hotel, with Geberit Mepla and Geberit HDPE piping providing the ideal solution in terms of sustainability, durability and ease of installation, whilst Geberit Silent-db20 piping was also specified to solve acoustic issues that are so common in hotel design. In terms of roof drainage, Geberit also provided the solution here too, with its innovation siphon-action Pluvia roof drainage system, which provides a reliable service over large areas.
The washrooms in the communal areas of the hotel, along with the bathrooms in each of the guest bedrooms also feature Geberit innovations. It goes without saying that the high-end, luxurious finish that wall-hung sanitaryware creates was the natural choice for the interior designers, and Geberit’s Duofix framing system made installation of this a simple task, while the company’s concealed cisterns, hidden discreetly behind the wall for a minimal finish, offer water-saving benefits to the hotel too. In the public areas where hygiene is paramount, Geberit’s electronic urinal flush controls and taps are fitted as standard.
Commenting on this latest high profile specification project for Geberit, Andy Lever, Commercial Sales Director, said: "It was important to the developers that reliable, high-quality products be used in the Design Hotel. That is why a wide range of Geberit products was used to satisfy the demand for high quality."
