AJ Retrofit of the Year 2017 Features Junckers Flooring

A listed church hall in Burford, Oxfordshire, extended and restored in a £3.2 million upgrade by Acanthus Clews Architects, has won Retrofit of the Year 2017 in The Architects Journal Retrofit Awards. Environmental and financial sustainability were of paramount importance to the church with traditional materials used throughout the building. To fully meet the sustainability criteria, our FSC and PEFC accredited solid wood floor were specified for the two hall spaces. The choice fell on grey-tinted Oak Boulevard Golden Pearl floors with a plank width of 185mm to complement the new interior spaces.

Our solid oak floors are durable and hardwearing enough to meet the demands of a busy community and church hall. With a typical 60-year lifespan, a Junckers floor has incredibly low lifecycle costs and will serve this new community space for many years to come. The flooring contractor was MK Flooring.

Dark and Full of Character

Danish company Frederica Furniture chose our Anthracite Grey Rustic Oil for the new wooden floors in their Copenhagen showroom. Unlike paint, the deep grey oil adds a dark tone to the floor and at the same time lets the natural grain pattern of the timber show through.

The Anthracite Grey Oil adds a rich, warm lustre, creating an elegant contrast to Frederica’s mid-century modern pieces in pale wood. A quick and easy option to change and update, it’s given their showroom space a whole new feel.
