HOTEL TORTUE HAMBURG
Harmonious design concept that includes the bathroom


After a four-year construction period, the boutique hotel Tortue opened a few weeks ago in Hamburg's Stadthöfe quarter. Since then, it has exuded all the charm of the savoir vivre in the Hanseatic city. This vitality can also be experienced in the hotel's guest bathrooms. Renowned interior designer Kate Hume relied on Bette and Laufen products for her furnishings. She used contrasting colours and forms and a range of materials to create an architecturally coherent overall concept in the spacious marble bathrooms.

The six-storey luxury hotel Tortue Hamburg with the red brick facade is housed in a listed building that used to be the Department of Urban Development (built in 1888). The idea behind the Stadthöfe project, which the hotel is part of: to slow the speed of modern life down a little. The name Tortue, which is French for tortoise, alludes to the time of Napoleon. At the beginning of the 19th century, well-dressed dandies and Bohemians strolled along the glamorous streets of Paris and Hamburg accompanied by a tortoise on a lead. The tortoises set the pace, and at the the time stood for the sheet luxury of having time.

And guests from all over the world should also celebrate this luxury at the Tortue. They will find the leisure to sharpen their senses for the essential and the details, to immerse themselves in life, and to discover new perspectives. The overall architectural concept is by David Chipperfield. The hotel's architecture is characterised by mosaic tiles, vaulted windows, high ceilings and wrought-iron detailing that harmonise particularly well with the frescoes by the French Art Nouveau painter Adrian Karbowsky of 1910.

The Hamburg-based architectural firm Stephen Williams Associates was responsible for the implementation of the historic areas, restoring the historic pillars of the original building and incorporating them in the new design concept. And tortoise details can be seen everywhere – for instance, on the lamps with a tortoise foot made out of porcelain.

Every area has its own mood
The British interior designer Kate Hume was responsible for the interior concept of the 126 rooms, the lobby and the Bar bleu; the Brasserie was created in cooperation with Stephen Williams. She had also designed the show apartments in the Elbphilharmonie, and selected all the furniture for the rooms in the boutique hotel - even designing some of it herself.

Hume attached great importance to the interior design of the Tortue, ensuring that every corner of the hotel should radiate its own atmosphere by using different colour concepts and accessories from different design eras. The 126 modern yet cosy guest rooms – including 114 double rooms (22 - 35 square metres), six junior suites (40 square metres), four apartment suites for longer stays (60 square metres) and two suites with balconies (60 - 70 square metres) – are warm and comfortably furnished. Walls, floors, textiles and furnishings match each other perfectly, while the dominant colours of red, blue and violet are picked up everywhere in the hotel.

Playing with contrasts
The bathroom is the perfect place for winding down completely and simply switching off. That is why the bathrooms of this Hamburg hotel were deliberately designed to reflect the overall concept of the hotel. Guests can find peace and time for contemplation, experience wellness, cleanse and care for themselves, and relax in mind and soul. The reduced colours in the bathrooms help with this, and encourage the occupant to rest.

"My intention was to create classic bathrooms in the guest rooms in a contemporary way," says Kate Hume. The designer consciously played with contrasting colours and shapes in the bathrooms. Where even more intense colours dominate in the hotel rooms, the designer opted for a reduced colour scheme in the marble bathrooms.

In the bathroom design, angular shapes interplay with round ones. Large rectangular marble tiles and accentuated square bathroom objects characterise the look of the bathrooms in the Tartue. Individual round elements such as the free-standing baths, bathroom and make-up mirrors and the washbasin fittings, relieve the ambience and ensure a harmonious overall picture in the bathroom.


Ceramics and glazed titanium steel
The interior designer opted for ceramic, marble and steel for the materials, and furnished the spacious, light rooms with high-quality bathroom objects by Bette, Kartell by Laufen and Zucchetti, and the hotel's own cosmetic products. "Ceramic and titanium steel are different materials – but they have similar advantages for the hotel industry," explains hotel director Anne-Marie Bauer. Because the materials, which at first seem so different, share one essential detail: their glaze. "It not only refines the surfaces of the bathroom objects, but also transforms them into easy-to-clean, durable, robust and unproblematic materials in the bathroom," says Bauer.

For the washbasins, Kate Hume chose the Kartell by Laufen collection (design: Ludovica + Roberto Palomba), which is made from the innovative sapphire ceramics by the Swiss bathroom specialist Laufen. With their slender yet robust walls and the narrow corner and edge radii, the washbasins greatly refine the spatial effect of the bathrooms and contribute to the exclusive atmosphere. "The Kartell by Laufen collection is a modern version of the traditional washbasin," says Kate Hume.

For guests, the sapphire ceramic washbasins also mean highly practical comfort because, thanks to the thin walls, they have more usable space in the basin than is the case with a traditional ceramic washbasin of the same size. In addition, the Kartell by Laufen washbasins have generous ceramic storage surfaces, where toothbrushes, cosmetics and any other accessories can be kept within easy reach.

Storage surfaces are important for guests
They also convinced the British designer. "Thanks to the storage surfaces, there is plenty of space on the washbasin. As I often stay at the hotel myself, I know what kind of things guests often lack in the bathroom, and storage space on the washbasin is definitely one of them," Hume explains her decision. The tooth mugs, which take up the subject of the flâneur with the stylised drawing of a dandy, also have a home on there, and are certainly an eye-catcher. The washbasin is effectively staged by the filigree, rectangular washbasin base rack from the Kartell by Laufen series in matt black, which also serves as a towel holder.

Hume chose Kartell by Laufen's narrow, transparent "Shelfish" shelves on the walls and in the showers as useful storage spaces for the guest.  The visual lightness of the durable and moisture-resistant wall consoles in smoke grey makes them very special items in the bathroom. The matching Kartell by Laufen Max-Beam chair, also in smoke grey, can be used as a stool inside and outside the shower.

Hume also trusted in Laufen's expertise in ceramics for the toilets and urinals. She chose the easy-care, flush-rimmed design classic Laufen Pro for the toilets throughout the hotel, and she found a solution that was also extremely sustainable for the guest toilets in the semi-public areas in the restaurants in the form of the shapely, waterless Lema urinal.

Showers in a wide range of dimensions
The interior designer opted for glazed titanium steel as the material for the showers and baths, choosing the shower tray classic BetteUltra and the baths BetteLux, BetteOcean and BetteLux Oval Silhouette from the range by the bathroom specialist Bette of Delbrück.

The BetteUltra shower trays combine ease of use and cleaning with a timeless, elegant design in a variety of formats. In particular, the range of sizes was one of the reasons why Kate Hume chose this model. Fourteen out of 60 possible shower tray formats are used in the hotel, and their low depth blends harmoniously with the hotel's bathroom designs. "In addition, Bette's customer and field service is excellent here in the Netherlands, and that was another fact that had a positive impact on my decision," Hume explains.

Exclusive staging of the bath
The bathrooms in the suites are also decorated in black and white, but are more expansive and, in addition to the shower, are also fitted with an exclusive bath. The free-standing bath BetteLux Oval Silhouette (design: Tesseraux + Partner) sets an optical highlight in the bathrooms of the two largest suites. In the 70-square-metre Tortue suite, Kate Hume placed the white bath on a rectangle of large-format, black marble tiles in the middle of the bathroom, so the free-standing BetteLux Oval silhouette looked as if it were on a stage With its organic basic shape, flowing interior and filigree outer edges, the bath blends particularly elegantly with the spacious marble bathrooms.

Kate Hume also used Bette baths in the other suites, although here she opted for the BetteOcean bath/shower combination and the built-in version of the BetteLux baths. Bath/shower combinations are an excellent choice for the hotel bathroom and are popular, as they offer the guest the possibility of a shower and a bath in a confined space. "If required we could, of course, have made our baths to measure for the Hotel Tortue so that they would have fit perfectly into smaller niches," says Sven Rensinghoff, Marketing Manager at Bette. "So far, our guests have been very enthusiastic about our modern yet classic bathrooms," says hotel manager Anne-Marie Bauer, summing up the feedback from guests on the bathrooms in this luxurious boutique hotel.
