Hotel tradition meets modern: the Boutique K7

Hotel tradition meets the modern age: the Boutique Hotel K7

January saw the opening of the very first boutique hotel in the spa town Bad Nauheim in the state of Hesse in Germany. It is the continuation of a long and successful hotel history, because the legendary, exclusive Hotel Europäischer Hof opened on the same site in 1855. The K7 appeals above all for its interior design concept, which was the work of interior designer Doris Seher (Raumkonzept 50). It celebrates individuality and creativity, and takes guests on a journey through various themed worlds and the flora and fauna of the jungle. The bathrooms form a counterpoint to all this, and were deliberately designed as minimalist personal retreats in the colours black and white. The showers were fitted with matt-coloured shower trays by Bette combined with the BetteUpstand option.

Six years ago when the current owners of the hotel, Doris and Peter Seher, purchased the three-storey building, they were completely unaware that many years before, their new property had been the most elegant hotel in Bad Nauheim. Internally and externally, little remained of the legendary hotel of bygone days, because at the time the building consisted mainly of privately-owned apartments. Quite by chance, the new owners learnt of the hotel's history, and decided to restore the "great-grandson of the legendary Hotel de L'Europe" to its former glory, and continue its successful history.

The hotel was completely refurbished over a period of two years. The aim of this extensive renovation process: to preserve both the historic structure and the long tradition and former vision of the Europäischer Hof, and combine them with the creative and modern ideas of the new owner family. The stairwell was renovated and the building façade reconstructed with the use of original photos to leave it looking as much like the original as possible.

In January 2019, the 19-room establishments reopened as the K7, the name an abbreviation of the address at Kurstraße 7. The owners had an experienced professional in Doris Seher to take care of the interior design of the boutique hotel: the co-owner and managing director of the K7 also has her own company in Bad Nauheim, Raumkonzept 50, that provides individual interior design concepts and project consultations.

Five different room worlds
The K7 finally allowed her to use her many years of experience for her own project, and that is instantly obvious in the results. Individuality, creativity, exceptional design and a passion for detail are seen throughout the interior design concept of the boutique hotel like a red thread. "I created five differently themed worlds for our rooms for our guests to choose from," says Doris Seher. "The five room worlds are the results of human character traits," she continues. "And we tried to find a unique ambience for each character."

"La Fleur", "Urban", "Marmor", "Artroom" and "Kamin" are the names of the five room worlds. Doris Seher uses the "La Fleur" room as an example to explain the underlying design concept. "I played with feminine patterns and colours, and styled the room with floral patterns, pink decorative items and homely velvet fabrics. This was with the business woman in mind who may have to 'be one of the boys' in daily working life, but can focus on just being a woman at the hotel in the evening," she explains with a smile.

The "Urban" rooms are more for young people aged up to the mid-30s. They are furnished with concrete furniture and natural wood, with Banksy pictures on the walls. White marble and black furniture dominate in the "Marmor" rooms, and they are designed to reflect the elegant, exclusive world. The "Artrooms" are decorated in lots of bright colours and contain Tom’s Drag sculptures and furniture by the artist Tom Hoffmann, whose oeuvre demonstrates many influences from European and American Pop Art – definitely a treat for art-lovers. Shabby chic dominates in the cosy "Kamin" (fireplace) rooms, with leather furniture, wood and velvet.

All five room worlds are combined in the dining room. Marble tables and chairs meet coloured silks and velvets, colourful curtains with tropical plants the golden chimp sculptures of the dining tables. "The jungle is the connecting link between everything, because it is created when people's individual characters encounter each other," adds Doris Seher. Next to the large dining room, the stairwell in particular transforms into a jungle. There are bright light spots along the dark corridor and steps, while preserved insects in picture frames adorn the walls, and over-dimensioned wallpapers with luscious jungle scenes combine fantasy and reality.

The hotel bathroom as a retreat
Although it was important to the design that the 19 hotel rooms all be as creative and individual as possible, it was equally important to her that the bathrooms should all have the same appearance, exclusive level of comfort and appealing, minimalist design. "This is a place where our hotel guests can escape from the daily jungle and find themselves again, without any distractions whatsoever," says Doris Seher. The puristic, uniform colour scheme in black and white also helps the occupant to find peace.

When it came to fitting out the showers, the hotel owners turned to Bette. A sustainable solution was chosen in the form of glazed titanium steel shower trays with a lateral edge upturn. "I saw a cross-section of the Bette frame on a visit to a sanitation wholesaler, and as I'm always careful to choose innovative building materials and solutions, I was instantly captivated by the BetteUpstand,"  explains Doris Seher.

"It's a really fabulous sustainable product, for hotel bathrooms in particular. There is no need for the tedious cleaning and maintenance of silicone joints in the shower area, but we are still left with the good feeling and the safety of knowing that there will be no unsightly, and above all leaking, corners." The silicone-free wall connection also eliminates the regular maintenance costs that would be incurred with a delicate silicone joint.

Shower tray classic in a timeless, elegant design
The choice was made for the shower tray classic BetteUltra measuring 120 x 80 cm, which combines ease of use and cleaning with a timeless, elegant design. In order to be extra-safe with regard to the delicate topic of fire protection, the shower trays were raised slightly and placed on a small plinth. Floor-level installation would have required complex installation in fire protection trays.

"In the choice of the right shower, important considerations by the hotel operators were not only the upstand solution, but also our tremendous range of shower colours," says Markus Holm, Project Manager at Bette. "We supplied 19 shower trays in a dark matt colour for the boutique hotel, as this means the dark anthracite of the bathroom floor is continued seamlessly into the shower area." Another benefit, adds Markus Holm, is that the Bette material comes with a 30-year guarantee. Glazed titanium steel is strong, impact- and scratchproof, and very easy to keep clean, all of which make it ideal for long-term use in hotels.
