HPL, melamine en clicwall in hotel 'La Réserve' in Knokke

An elegant renaissance for a premium hotel in Knokke

What can a few choice materials do for the allure of a hotel? Quite a bit, judging from a cursory glance at the renovated La Réserve in Knokke. This premium resort reinvented itself with a style that exudes both timeless class and contemporary luxury, courtesy of HPL, melamine and Clicwall in neutral yet elegant designs.

Every one of the hotel’s 108 bathrooms received a refined HPL finish in Romantic Oak light – a soft wood look that creates a wonderful sense of serenity. Ideal for the bathroom as HPL cleans easily and boasts maximum resistance against scuff marks, wear & tear and humidity. For the reception area, the wine cabinets and the restaurant, where Peter Goossens stirs the pots, a slightly darker hue was in order with elements in Master Oak brown. All but indistinguishable from real wood, this material contributes to the hotel’s warm and luxurious atmosphere.

Naturally the employees are also taken care of: they can spend their lunch break in the stylish staff area, which effortlessly accommodates heavily laden transport vehicles. The Clicwall panels in Lime chalk white create a perfectly finished stucco effect and are instantly ready for use, without the lengthy drying times of traditional plasterwork. Moreover, they are up to 4 times more resistant to the impact of everyday work tools than plasterboard.
