HISTORIC SURREY HOTEL BENEFITS FROM VIEGA’S BATHROOM SOLUTIONS

Viega’s range of pre-wall bathroom systems and flush plates have been specified as part of a major refurbishment of The White Horse - a characterful hotel in the Surrey Hills that dates back to the 13th Century.

The £4 million expansion project, undertaken by Paton Developments, saw the complete remodelling of the guest accommodation and the creation of 16 new bedrooms and accompanying bathrooms. The refurbishment also included a redesign of the restaurant, bar and public areas within the hotel. Bathroom and spa specialist Utopia Projects provided design consultancy services and supplied the bathroom fixtures and fittings.

Each of the new en-suites combines a contemporary look and luxury feel and the use of concealed pre-wall bathroom systems supported the creation of a spacious and modern look in line with the design vision for the hotel. Although not on the original specification, Viega’s concealed cisterns and Visign for Style 10 chrome finish flush plates were chosen for the full roll out of the design across all 56 rooms. Viega products represented a cost-effective solution to achieving the high-quality finish required.

Howard Jones from Utopia Projects said: “We have worked with Viega on a number of diverse and high-end projects over the years and this has developed into a strong partnership. For the White Horse project, it was important to balance the need to create a high end, modern finish while ensuring that budgets were managed for the entire refurbishment.”
