Case study: CTD Architectural Tiles makes a statement in Antwerp

Drawing on its extensive experience of working in the UK hotel sector, leading commercial tile supplier CTD Architectural Tiles was chosen to curate a unique tile package for the refurbishment of the Mercure Antwerp City Centre Hotel in Belgium…

Located in the heart of Antwerp’s historic city centre, the Mercure Antwerp City Centre Hotel seamlessly combines the sophistication of a boutique hotel with a quirky style in a nod to the city’s links to fashion. Antwerp is home to some of the oldest and most renowned fashion colleges in the world, and it was important that this hotel refurbishment was equally stylish. Working in collaboration with architects Buckley Grey Yeoman, CTD Architectural Tiles curated a tile package that not only reflected the city’s fashionable history but also offered a durable solution.

The Lisbon collection proved the ideal choice for the hotel’s high traffic bistro and breakfast rooms. The full bodied porcelain tiles are suitable for both floor and wall applications, and the collection is particularly popular for commercial spaces with high footfall thanks not only to its durability, but also its availability in a wide range of sizes and finishes. Shades Light Grey Blue and Light Green were used in this hotel for a finish that combines the aesthetic of a classic European bistro with the natural world to create a cosmopolitan yet relaxing atmosphere.
