Town House - Kingston University
SOLID OAK NORDIC FLOORING FOR NEW ´TOWN HOUSE´
Plank Hardwood Flooring
Textured Nordic Oak
Grafton Architects designed Town House, a new mixed-use teaching facility for Kingston University. The interior of the six-storey building is arranged around a series of interlocking, open plan spaces, where Junckers’ solid hardwood flooring features as part of limited materials palette.
The impressive colonnaded façade reveals a dynamic space where the university’s library and archive, dance and performances spaces sit happily alongside two cafes and several adaptable learning spaces. Junckers’ 140mm Textured Oak Nordic Classic flooring clads the treads and risers of the imposing staircase in the triple height courtyard, as well as providing a hardwearing floor surface for large seating areas across the first floor.
The pale oak floor which has a brushed, tactile finish, infuses the interior with a natural warmth and promotes a healthy indoor climate. All-natural, solid hardwood is free of any chemical substances which adversely affect indoor air quality. Junckers has completed EPDs for all its floors to aid specification for sustainable and net zero carbon projects. The flooring contractors were PICA Floorings.
