The interior design of the renewed Britannia Hotel has been developed by the Interior Design and Architecture Studio “Metropolis Arkitektur & Design AS” and the Hotel will be built and refurbished by Hent AS. The inauguration date is set for the end of 2018, beginning of 2019. There are 168 new rooms that will be built in addition to the existing 90 rooms, meaning Britannia Hotel will have a new total of 258 rooms, including tower suites, deluxe rooms, artist rooms and business rooms.
Starting July 2017, Eurocomponents will deliver two different bathroom typologies, in total 168 bathroom pods, with shell in steel frame and fiberboard panels on a concrete floor base. The total value of this prestigious order amounts to more than €3,5 million.
The client was astonished by the high level of finish and craftsmanship when inspecting the mock-up bathroom at the factory. There were some doubts beforehand regarding whether it would be possible to build such a complex and highly tailor-made product in an industrial environment. This is in fact the very essence of what Eurocomponents does best.
We manufacture customised high quality products in a safe industrial environment, using the best Italian materials and focusing on a refined craftsmanship. Among the many customised technical and tailor-made features the following are particularly of interest: washbasin top and shelves, bathroom floor and wall covering completely in customised Carrara Venatino marble slabs, marble fishbone pattern on floor, specially made taps with bronze finish, extra clear glass shower wall with bronze hinges, internal technical shaft behind WC wall as a solution to the lack of space in the hotel structure. In addition, a customised light design to create a warm environment and highlight the elevated comfort level of the room.
