Vicaima takes centre stage at theatre inspired Porto Hotel
Vicaima coloured laminates and performance door solutions have been selected to take pride of place at the recently refurbished four-star Mercure Porto Centro Hotel, close to an historic setting and UNESCO World Heritage site.
The Mercure Porto Centro Hotel, part of the Accor Hotels Group, is situated at the very heart of Porto city in Northern Portugal. Located in the culturally important Batalha district, the hotel has undergone a complete renovation in which inspiration has been drawn from the theatre to present unique spaces that combine the art and essence of Porto and its historic past.
To enhance the refined interior of this important leisure refurbishment, the hotel chose Olive Grey as the theme colour from Vicaima’s Dekordor HD Colours Range. This hard wearing continuous pressure laminate finish is ideal for such situations, affording durability and an extensive tonal range to cater for a multitude of interior design requirements. When it came to performance, room entrances were specified to have the Vicaima Portaro door system, which creates a completely matching door and frame. These units also afforded fire resistance to 30 minutes (FD30) and with acoustic soundproofing to 41dB. As a finishing flourish and to evoke the theatrical element, Vicaima were also asked to provide an integrated side panel with a built in LED strip. This custom element cast expressive ambient light and emphasised the beauty of the Vicaima door entrance system.
Dekordor HD in Olive Grey is just one of 22 attractive and contemporary laminate colour options from this exciting and recently introduced Vicaima range. With its easy to maintain and durable surface the product finish is ideally suited to hotels, student accommodation, medical, educational and commercial applications.
Vicaima offer an extensive range of innovative design options, with fire, acoustic and security performance. For further details about these and other products from the many Vicaima collections, visit the Vicaima website.
