One park drive designed by Herzog & de Meuron is the signature building of the new residential district. This new residential circular tower is positioned at the head of the dock, it proudly represents everything that makes the new neighbourhood so special – a unique architectural achievement thoughtfully designed to be the very best in the city and waterside living.
We worked with Goddard Littlefair who are the designers to create a timber floor that was a perfect match for all their colour palettes for each level and apartment type. Goddard Littlefair is an award winning practise and are very exacting in the specifications and requirements. The image below shows the 1 bed apartment with our Dove Grey engineered wood floor in a very select grade. The images were taken by Gareth Gardiner a professional photographer.
The product code below is our TW E753 Dove Grey Brushed UV oiled oak floor
The larger apartments have a totally different look and feel and by using a darker palette the designers have created a very rich luxurious look that matches all the interior fittings.
The two bed apartments have our Burnt Fumed Colour Oiled Oak flooring finished with a top coat of UV oil to protect the surface. You can see how we changed the direction of the flooring by the doorway to create a threshold with the same floor rather than trying to match something else. We use “Fuming” and Coloured Oils to create unique floors.
With our “Matched Ends” tongue and grooved boards it is very easy to achieve this. Visitors to the marketing suite on level 31 at One Canada Square can see this for themselves.
