Award-winning contemporary building features Junckers solid oak flooring

We are very proud to have supplied our solid timber floors to this amazing project which recently won a Wood Award, the Education and Public Sector 2018 category and was also shortlisted for the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize 2018.

The Sultan Nazrin Shah Centre by Níall McLaughlin Architects is a graceful addition to the listed parkland at Worcester College, Oxford. The striking contemporary building houses new conference and events facilities. With a high-end finish throughout, the building houses a large lecture theatre and dance studio fitted with Junckers Oak Boulevard flooring. With a plank width of 185mm, Oak Boulevard is our widest dimension board, an elegant and durable option for a public building.

The flooring contractor was Capital Floors Ltd.

Illums Bolighus

Anyone who’s been to Copenhagen and has even the slightest bit of interest in design will know the institution that is Illums Bolighus. Back in the 1950’s, they created the concept of ‘furnished interiors’, combining furniture, textiles and art into ‘displays you could practically move into’ – the ultimate in modern living.

They also have stores in Stockholm and Oslo and have now opened in Emporia in Malmo. Trendsetting and visionary displays creating an attractive and inspirational shopping environment have always been at the forefront of their business model so when it came to choosing a floor, our Wide Board Oak planks were a perfect fit!Junckers wide board oak at Illums Bolighus 2 low res

Low, Lower, Lowest… Our Prices Have Come Down!

 Our new price list will take effect from today,  1 March 2012 – with some considerably reduced prices!

Because of our improved, more efficient manufacturing techniques and sourcing of raw materials, we’ve been able to lower prices on many of our solid hardwood floors. Our 14mm two-strip range and our 15mm Single Stave Parquet floors have seen the most significant reductions in price but we’ve also been able to lower the price of some of our most popular floors, including our Oak planks and Black Oak.

We also have several new solid wood floors – our Texture and Colour range is growing with more options; Our Ash and Nordic Ash products are now available in our widest plank, 185mm and we’re also introducing a brand new product: Industrial Parquet – watch this space for more info coming soon. 

For a (quite possibly lower than you think) quote – please get in touch on 01376 534 700 or sales@junckers.co.uk or contact your local Junckers dealer.
