Nordic Beech floor for historic music hall

The historic Aberdeen Music Hall has been restored and redeveloped by architects BDP. The Category A listed concert hall has been completely refurbished and now includes a performance studio, creative learning space and a café/bar.

Nearly 1,500m2 of our solid Nordic Beech Classic flooring has been fitted as part of the transformation, including in the impressive 1,300 seat auditorium, which now has step-free access to all levels. Nordic Beech with its white pigmented finish offers a light and bright backdrop to the interior and makes the most of the new architectural lighting by reflecting an abundance of light.

By specifying the same floor for much of the building, the various spaces are seamlessly connected by a unifying element. At 140mm wide, Junckers’ signature wide board, long-length floor boards really come into their own in the open spaces and circulation routes, offering a clean and elegant look. Solid beech is amongst the most hard-wearing timbers used for flooring and our pre-finished floors are well-known for their durability.

The flooring contractor was West End Flooring.

A Whiter Shade of Pale – with PreLak White

Junckers Ash with PreLak White (dog) low res

We have seen a huge increase in the demand for pale floors in the last few months and being a Danish company, we couldn’t not have the perfect product for this coveted Scandinavian look! The white-washed look can be both clean and contemporary or industrial-like and rustic when used on our new, textured planks, for example. Our PreLak White gives that perfect, naturally transparent, milky, creamy white appearance and works perfectly on all kinds of timber – oak, ash, beech and maple, as well as soft woods. It’s easy to apply, has a low odour and contains a UV filter so your floors won’t fade or become yellow. One, two or three coats can be applied to build on the depth of colour then over-coated with a water based lacquer. Couldn’t be simpler!
