THE HIGGINS GALLERY
Location: Bedford, United Kingdom , Contractor: PICA Flooring, Square meters: 750m2,
Categories: Museums & Galleries
When Architects Buttress Fuller Allsop Williams were tasked with redeveloping The Higgins Bedford Gallery, they decided to install 750m2 of Junckers solid hardwood flooring.
The project joined together three previously separate buildings into a new facility, which apart from the existing art gallery and museum now includes space for temporary exhibitions, space for learning and activities, a café and a shop.
Junckers wide board Oak Variation flooring with Ultra Matt lacquer serves as a unifying element to the new interior and acts as an elegant backdrop to the collections and exhibits. Solid Oak is easy to maintain and very hardwearing, even in a high traffic area open to the public.
