Geberit's Lone Range

Words:
Jan-Carlos Kucharek

Cutting-edge Zagreb architect 3LHD has earned a few plaudits for its Lone Hotel, whose modernist terraces sweep down to Croatia’s stunning Adriatic coast. The five-star complex offers 236 luxurious rooms, 12 unspeakably indulgent suites, three restaurants and copious conference facilities. For the plumbing, the firm specified Geberit HDPE, Mepla and ‘Silent-db20’ acoustic pipework to the guest bathrooms. Its Duofix framing system for behind-wall concealed cisterns are lo-flush, cutting water use significantly. And in public areas, its electronic urinal flush controls were fitted as standard. Geberit’s behind-the-scenes presence amid all this overt ostentation smacks of being the bridesmaid rather than the bride; but then, if you were invited to a wedding at a swanky place like this, who’d care?
