A commercial broadloom carpet from GH Commercial met the interior aesthetic of Haus Restaurant in Hahndorf, South Australia while ensuring a quick installation at the busy venue.

Tucked away in the Adelaide Hills, the tiny town of Hahndorf enjoys a reputation as one of Australia’s busiest tourist attractions and is classified as the country’s oldest surviving German settlement. Its tree-lined main street, home to the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker, boasts myriad artisanal shops, galleries and studios, a leathersmith, jeweller, craft brewery, traditional sweet shops, cafes and more. 

Occupying pride of place is the multi-award winning Haus Restaurant, an original 1850s German-built building, rich in history and character, while the broader Haus complex provides multiple accommodation sites and caters for conferences, events, functions and weddings.

High Performance Flooring

Looking to update the flooring of this popular restaurant, the designers sought a product that could seamlessly integrate with the existing heritage aesthetic – think rustic timber beams, exposed brickwork and stone walls – while complementing the newer, open-space glassed areas as well.

With the restaurant operating seven days a week offering breakfast, lunch and dinner, it was crucial to find flooring that could be installed quickly for minimal disruption to service. 

GH Commercial’s commercial broadloom carpet – York Street by Feltex in the colour Pepperwood – met the brief, providing warmth, comfort and a subtle tonal look that artfully blended into the established decor. This 3.66m wide commercial carpet roll could be speedily installed with minimal seams. 

Beautifully crafted from 100% New Zealand wool, the multi-level loop finish of York Street broadloom carpet is eminently suited to hospitality, with an exceptionally soft underfoot feel for customers and busy wait staff, and a practical textured pattern that’s ideal for disguising minor spills between cleans. 

The unique fibre structure of wool broadloom carpet is naturally stain resistant, flame retardant and hardwearing, with a 3-star Commercial Heavy Duty grading from the independent Carpet Institute of Australia (ACCS) guaranteeing durability. Wool also assists in regulating the temperature, keeping things cooler in summer and warmer in winter, plus its noise insulating properties serve to dampen the ambient noise of hospitality venues.
