The Dutch city of Woerden is located in the Netherlands’s green heart, just a few kilometres from Utrecht. A listed former military building dating from 1762, Stadshotel Woerden has recently been renovated and reopened. The family-run hotel managed by owner Driekus van Rossum also includes a restaurant and a bar, as well as a shop offering local products. The interior is a mix of traditional Dutch cosiness and modern comfort. The design concept was developed by XS Architecten based in Amersfoort.
Each of the hotel’s 25 rooms features an individual design. The architects have combined rustic timber beams and historical wooden furniture with modern elements. For the flooring, the architects selected the Moduleo Impress vinyl planks featuring a strikingly natural oak effect. IVC Group’s refined ‘embossed-in-register’ technique creates a natural wood effect that emulates not only the look but also the texture of wood.
“For Stadshotel, we have selected materials with a natural and light-shaded look to create a relaxed atmosphere and to emphasise the historical building’s period features,” says Pascal Rijnders, architect and partner at XS Architecten. “Moduleo Impress is easy-to-clean and waterproof and perfectly fits into our interior design concept.” The Impress collection is manufactured in Belgium; all of the products can be recycled. The Moduleo Impress designer flooring by IVC (International Vinyl Company) received the 2015 Innovations@DOMOTEX award in the ‘flexible flooring’ category. The Belgian group will again exhibit its products at DOMOTEX 2016. (TE)
