Manhattan Loft Gardens Stratford International

Project: Manhattan Loft Gardens Stratford International

The Solid Wood Flooring Company manufactured a value engineered wood floor to meet the exact requirement and specification of the client. From the developers who brought loft living to London and behind Chiltern Firehouse and St Pancras Hotel, Manhattan Loft Gardens is a 42-storey, double-cantilevered skyscraper that is introducing a new way of hospitality, seamlessly merging short term stays with long-term hotel living.

Combining world-class architecture by SOM, design, hospitality and art, it features three sky gardens with unparalleled views over London, outstanding dining offerings, Loft apartments and a hotel designed by Space Copenhagen.

Born from an aspiration to create a community of like-minded people interested in a social lifestyle, the building’s architecture has been propelled by a vision of social potency that is designed to encourage spontaneous interaction. Guests will enjoy all-inclusive, 24-hour hotel service and curated cultural programming, whether staying one night in the hotel or one week, month or year in the fully furnished Lofts.

Design Brief for the wood floor:

We worked closely with the client, Architect and main contractors to provide a unique engineered wood floor solution. The design brief was to create a band sawn finished floor that looked “Unfinished” with a high-quality UV cured oiled surface for total protection. Included in this was a price point so that all budgetary constraints could be met without sacrificing quality.

The boards are unique and unusual, being cross band sawn to create a textured finish that looks natural like the old boards in loft conversions. This matched the ethos the client was trying to achieve in both look and finish. The product code is TW E781 and can be seen on at the bottom of the case study.
