Altro ‘delivers style and sustainability’ for eco-holiday homes

ALTRO Ensemble modular flooring has been used throughout a new development of 21 modern, sustainable holiday homes; part of a new ‘eco’ hotel complex in Thuringia, Germany.

The chalet-style, solid wood accommodation has been built with high-quality natural materials, and sustainably equipped as part of an ecological construction project.
The build, including the interior design, required sustainable materials, sourced from local companies, helping reduce the hotel’s carbon footprint by keeping delivery miles low. This local supply chain also helped to contribute to the environmental balance of the hotel’s construction.

Flooring company, Alexander Oertel, recommended Altro Ensemble modular flooring for the interior floors owing to Altro’s membership of the German Sustainable Building Council (DNGB).

Other contributing factors included Altro’s policy of sourcing raw materials locally and these products being manufactured at the company’s nearby German site in Dessau.

‘It was important to us that we found a floor that fits our sustainability concept and at the same time looks stylish and modern,’ explains Katrin Schlottke of Bio-Seehotels.

Says Altro: ‘Altro Ensemble has up to 15dB impact sound reduction with added comfort underfoot, making it perfect for front of house areas in hotels including foyers and reception areas, restaurant and café dining areas, retail, offices, and student accommodation – any environment where design is key. With four modular sizes, you can mix and match to create unique patterns utilising colour and design. It combines with Altro Whiterock wall designs for a unique interior statement.’
