Altro delivers on style and sustainability for eco holiday homes

  • 16 Aug 2021

Altro Ensemble™ modular flooring features throughout a new development of 21 modern, sustainable holiday homes. These are part of a new ‘eco’ hotel complex in Thuringia, Germany.

The chalet-style 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. This was to help reduce the hotel’s carbon footprint by keeping delivery miles low. The local supply chain also helped to contribute to the environmental balance of the hotel’s construction.

Altro

Flooring company, Alexander Oertel, recommended Altro Ensemble modular flooring for the interior floors. This is due 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. 

‘Sustainability concept’

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

Altro Ensemble has up to 15dB impact sound reduction with added comfort underfoot. This makes 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.
