Ibidem restaurant, Arnuero, Spain
Award-winning chef chooses Altro for new restaurant in historic Cantabria
Altro Whiterock White
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.
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.”
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.”

Hospital prescribes Altro Whiterock for its corridors
Responsible for developing, testing and distributing countless prescription drugs for the general public, pharmaceutical facilities adhere to a strict hygienic code. These environments strongly enforce protocols intended to prevent infections in patients that can occur when sterile compounds used to create medications are contaminated with harmful microbes during the manufacturing process or when stored improperly.
Interior finishes, such as wall panelling, are under close scrutiny in sterile application areas. Regulation requires that finishes must be smooth, non-porous, non-shedding, easy to clean and resistant to chemicals as well as staining. The actual installation must also be seamless to prevent cracks, gaps and fissures that can harbour microscopic bacteria.
A hospital pharmacy unit in Richmond, Canada realized that Altro wall panels satisfy these regulatory requirements and specified a combination of Altro Whiterock Satins and its glossy counterpart, Altro Whiterock Chameleon, for their recent renovation. Those involved in the decision were particularly fond of Altro Whiterock’s impressive hygienic properties and bacteria resistance.
Once installed, Altro Whiterock wall panels are heat welded together using a colour matched vinyl weldrod. This process creates a smooth, seamless surface that ensures there is no place to harbour contaminants.
Altro Whiterock is the hygienic alternative to tiles that’s impact resistant, grout-free and easy to clean. Its smooth white surface and classical purity make it a timeless choice for any interior. It is Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) approved and is made from a high-quality, food-safe PVCu polymer that can handle temperatures up to 60°C. It meets all current European Union (EU) Directives on health and hygiene. This makes it particularly suitable for use in commercial kitchens.;
