Hermans Restaurant, Stockholm, Sweden

Old meets new in Hermans restaurant kitchen

Altro Stronghold 30, Altro Whiterock

Hermans vegetarian restaurant and garden café is located in a nineteenth-century listed building in Stockholm with a breathtaking view over the channel. It seats 50 people in the restaurant, 150 in the garden and another 40 in a glass covered veranda. The restaurant prepares vegetarian meals with organic ingredients from around the world and also offers vegetarian catering.

In the summer of 2015 the restaurant underwent a major restoration of both the dining room and kitchen. The old kitchen was fitted with thick floor tiles and tiled walls from the 1920s which were in great need of modernisation.

When it came to choosing material for floors and walls, Leo Mickelsson Oren at the restaurant contacted a sales representative from Altro, who showed him Altro Stronghold 30 and Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding. “I realised the products should be suitable in our kitchen and eliminate a number of our problems, such as slip resistance, comfort, ease of cleaning and noise.”

The Altro safety flooring and hygienic wall cladding installation was undertaken by Måleri & Golvservice.

Since the restaurant is located in a listed building, they were not allowed to put wires in the walls. The solution was to build up extra interior walls on the outside of the old stone arches, mounting Altro Whiterock wall cladding panels on top.

“I’m very satisfied with my choice of floor and wall cladding in the kitchen. Now we have a safer, quieter and comfortable working environment and at the same time a more hygienic one,” said Leo Mickelsson Oren.
