When Manchester-based architects and designers, 74, completed the major project of extending and remodelling a Grade-II listed, two-storey Victorian brick building in Surrey, Amtico Signature was chosen to add texture and an understated elegance to the multipurpose venue.
The repurposed 453m2 building, Hox Haus, now serves as the central focus, clubhouse and social amenity for the Hox Park student campus, set within extensive countryside in Englefield Green. Located within the existing pavilion building, the clubhouse contains a variety of multifunctional spaces for studying and socialising.
"The internal finishes are a combination of sumptuous dark timber and leather, with marble effect, brass and black screens. We loved the colouring of the Ink Wash which complemented the red brick structure of the existing building, while giving it a modern, up to date twist. Aesthetic elegance, combined with the hard-wearing longevity of a 1mm LVT, was ideal for a heavy traffic environment."
