Hotel Seegarten in Sundern: feeling at home in the Sauerland – with fittings and shower solutions from Dornbracht
Iserlohn, 11 July 2022
The Seegarten Hotel and Restaurant is a short walk away from the promenade on Lake Sorpesee in the Sauerland. With an exclusive location, superb architecture, and famous restaurants, this 4-star accommodation is a haven of well-being for anyone seeking rest and relaxation. Fittings and shower solutions from Dornbracht are a key element of the overall concept.
A new sense of openness and spaciousness
Owner and operator Olaf Baumeister took over the traditional house from his parents in 1992. The famous TV chef, who has now been appointed Ambassador of Good Taste for the North Rhine-Westphalia region, has been continually renewing and extending the buildings and interiors ever since. In 2014, for instance, he added the ‘Lofthaus’, where the view from the infinity pool takes in the forests, the lake and the sky.
Most recently, more rooms have been completely renovated and refurbished. The interior design was created by Berlin’s Studio Aisslinger. The characteristically clear and ambitious layout conveys a sense of clarity and spaciousness and produces living areas fitted with high-quality furniture and bathroom interiors. Most of the materials used, such as wood and stone, are untreated. The materials and the choice of products are a clear acknowledgement of the quality to be found in the region: The style of lighting, the furniture and the home accessories come exclusively from the Sauerland. Iserlohn-based Dornbracht is practically a neighbour and is represented by fittings and shower solutions from the Meta series, as well as by the Aquamoon wellness shower.
“I have a passion for superb design, high-quality materials and exceptional surface finishes. We have found in Dornbracht a partner who more than meets these requirements. I was even more convinced by knowing that the fittings come from Iserlohn,” says Olaf Baumeister of the collaboration with the premium manufacturer.
Monochrome elegance: Meta in Black matt
A striking feature in the open and functional interior design concept of the new designer rooms: All that separates the bathroom area from the rest of the room is a small wall and inclined, light wooden slats. The floor, parts of the wall and the bath surround were covered in distinctive terrazzo natural stone, which is also used for the washstand. The abundance of enclosed aggregates is eye-catching. Two fittings from the Meta series – free-standing single-lever mixers in Black matt – are mounted behind the white counter-top basins. A concept of maximum reduction, with a technoid, almost sculptural appearance makes a confidently stylish statement here. Another Meta is fitted right next to the bath – this time a single-lever wall-mounted mixer. Here too, the monochrome elegance of the Black matt fitting contrasts subtly with the warm greys of the natural stone, stabilising its striking pattern and the polished surfaces.
