Ibidem restaurant, Arnuero, Spain

Ibidem restaurant, Arnuero, Spain

Award-winning chef chooses Altro for new restaurant in historic Cantabria

Altro Whiterock White

“Everyone is very satisfied with the result. Without a doubt I would recommend Altro Whiterock for this type of installation.”

Rubén Abascal,
Chef and Owner, Ibidem
Issue

Ibidem restaurant can be found within the old Palacio de Armas de Alvear, an historical house, built between the 18th and 19th centuries. It’s situated in the village of Castillo Siete Villas (Seven Villas Castle) in Arnuero, Cantabria.

Ibidem is a new restaurant, opened by award-winning chef Rubén Abascal. Abascal is known for his original desserts, including chocolate chess pieces and creations using liquid nitrogen. When it came to creating his new restaurant, he turned to Eugenio González and Beatriz Varea, architects from the BE2Arq studio.
Approach

The restaurant needed a kitchen that would look both attractive and professional to customers, however, food safety had to be a priority. To find a walls solution that would meet these needs, the architects contacted Altro.

“This work is the final step in fulfilling my dream of having my own restaurant, and this meant using the best quality materials”, explains Rubén Abascal. “Although the restaurant is set within an 18th century Cantabrian house, we needed a wall solution that could create a modern look and feel.”
Solution

To meet the needs of this new enterprise, Altro Whiterock White, a hygienic and impact-resistant alternative to tiles was chosen. With no joins, it creates a smooth surface from floor to ceiling, making cleaning easier and giving bacteria nowhere to hide. It can also be thermoformed to perfectly fit windows, again with no joins, ideal for Ibidem’s kitchen, which has deep-set windows.

“When you are part of a project headed by someone who puts so much passion into every detail of his restaurant, like Rubén Abascal, you have an increased responsibility, and know that you cannot fail. The work of our team has been exceptional.”

Luis Peña,
Manager, REYCA-C Decoration

Luis Peña chose Altro Whiterock without hesitation: “For the end user the advantage are durability, safety, hygiene and cleanability. For contractors, the benefits are speed of installation and a spectacular finish with hardly any dust, plus hours in saved time, compared with other materials. We are happy with the result and would definitely recommend it.”

Altro solution brings life to design-led Hull birth centre

June 2020

Altro solution brings life to design-led Hull birth centre

Altro Pisces, Altro Whiterock Digiclad, Altro Whiterock Satins, Altro Walkway 20, Altro Wood

A complete floors and walls solution from Altro has been used to create a relaxing, stylish home from home environment for mums-to-be in a new birth centre at Hull Women and Children’s Hospital.

The new midwife-led Fatima Allam Birth Centre meets the needs of women who want a more natural childbirth experience.

Andrew Ledger, contracts manager for Apleona, which provides facilities management for the building, oversaw the new construction and was part of the team that devised the overall concept.

“We specified Altro floors and walls from the start because we are using these products elsewhere in the hospital with a great deal of success. They meet all our clinical hygiene and infection control needs, while also offering a superb range of colours and textures, which makes them ideal for creating a modern and stylish environment.

“The quality and durability of Altro is a major factor too because, as a PFI project, the long-term cost is under close scrutiny.

Adele Howitt, from Studio Eleven Gallery & Workshop in Hull, won a commission from the hospital to design the interior concept.

“Once we had decided on colours, we worked closely with Altro to look at the specific products. They completely understood our practical and aesthetic needs.”

“I used Altro Whiterock Digiclad to create statement walls from floor to ceiling. This is a fantastic product for design-led projects because you can print any image or photograph onto it, and the quality is superb.”

Adele chose Altro Whiterock Satins for the shower rooms. She says “It has some wonderful shades, and the subtle, sheer texture is very stylish.”

Flooring for the birth centre was key to creating the homely, nonclinical feel. Andrew Ledger and the project team wanted natural, warm, wood-effect flooring and chose Altro Wood.

Andrew says: “Wet areas in clinical environments need to be very safe underfoot, so we chose Altro Pisces safety flooring for both the shower rooms and around the birthing pool. This flooring performs superbly in both wet or dry conditions, and with bare feet or shoes, so it’s perfect for keeping both patients and staff safe. Altro Pisces also looks good enough to work within our design themes and there are some great colours.”

The flooring was installed by Floorcovers UK. Partner Phil Morris said: “For quality and reliability Altro is the best, and they are a pleasure to work with."

The Altro wall sheet was fitted by Richardson Claddings. Owner Joe Richardson comments:

“The beauty of the Altro walls system is that it is so quiet, easy and clean to install. Altro sends the sheets to us ready-cut, which means minimal cutting or shaping on site.”

Andrew Ledger says: “We get a lot of medical professionals visiting from around the world and they say the centre is the best of its kind they have seen anywhere.

“Most importantly, the mothers who have given birth here are thrilled with it too.

“After each birth, the rooms are completely disinfected and cleaned, and the Altro floors and walls are proving very easy to maintain.

“We are delighted with this amazing facility.”
