Nordic Oak Boulevard
The design brief for this project involved knitting together three very individual, cellular and historic buildings all with their own levels and nuances, to form a modern, coherent and flexible office space.
In order to achieve this, Stephen Marshall Architects selected Oak Nordic Boulevard flooring, to act as a unifying element that followed the many steps, bumps and bays of the three buildings.The white-tinged Oak Nordic’s pale wash complemented the various brick wall elements that were exposed as part of the build and also contrasted with the dark walls and steel work of the stairs and core.
The timber floor acts as an important part of the building's palette that reacts and changes subtly according to the external sunlight conditions, helping to create a warm, welcoming and open space.
