Bespoke Solid Wood Flooring for London’s Latest Hipster Hotel

Specialist hotel, hospitality and residential architects Dexter Moren Associates designed London’s newest hipster hotel, The Curtain. Located in the fashionable Shoreditch area, The Curtain’s luxury interiors include 4500m2 Junckers solid oak flooring in a dark grey stain and textured surface with a rich patina.

Fitted in all bedrooms and suites, the elegant, dark grey wooden floor is perfectly suited to the hotel’s luxe warehouse living style. The deep, grey stain and textured surface highlighting the natural grain structure of the timber is a custom finish developed in collaboration with the designers, to achieve an exact match to their brief. As a specialist service to the design community,

is able to create custom floors made in solid hardwood to offer bespoke finishes for individual projects.

Junckers solid wood floors have natural acoustic qualities and ensure a comfortable indoor climate for guests. The floor arrives pre-finished and sealed in Ultramatt lacquer, which has the appearance of an oiled finish, minimising on-site work and ensuring a perfect finish. A Junckers pre-finished solid hardwood floor is hard-wearing and long lasting, the perfect choice for a busy hotel.

The flooring contractors were PICA Floorings Ltd.

M/S Maritime Museum, Helsingor, Denmark

Courtesy of our Danish colleagues, here are some pictures of the newly refurbished M/S Maritime Museum in Helsingør, Denmark. Working closely with architects BIG (Bjarne Ingles Group), they’ve created a custom finished oak floor for this special project. The floor acts a ‘bridge’ between the concrete, glass and steel in the interior, housed in an amazing 150 metre long, old concrete dock.

The brief was for a floor with a rustic quality to match the raw and patinated concrete of the old dock and the result is a solid, brushed oak floor which gives contrasting warmth to the overall impression of the museum. When natural light hits the surface of the floor at an angle, it creates a spectacular effect.
