The Collective have developed a pioneering Co-Living space called Old Oak, offering members of its community a new way to live in London. Choosing Amtico flooring, they were looking for a simple, clean look, using woods from our Spacia and Signature collection.
Comprising 546 rooms in total, most of the space is divided into ‘twodios’ – two en-suite bedrooms that share a small kitchenette – located directly off long corridors. Old Oak also includes a range of dedicated communal facilities and spaces including a restaurant, library, lounge and spa. All of these areas are designed to bring people together: from quiet spaces to work in, through to open spaces for socialising. Connecting all of the rooms and enhancing the high-end interior design of the property is a premium selection of luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) from Amtico.
In the restaurant, kitchenettes, laundry room and library a selection of Parisian Pine and Cellar Oak provide natural, warming tones while, in the ‘twodios’ and individual suites, White Ash offers a cooler and more contemporary feel.
In the bedrooms and all other communal areas, White Ash, Parisian Pine and Cellar Oak were laid in a Stripwood pattern to create authentic and stylish spaces. This proved to be a versatile choice, allowing a smooth transition between different areas, while creating open and airy spaces.
In the kitchenettes and lounge areas, a large Parquet laying pattern highlights the textures of the wood grains for a contemporary edge.
"We wanted a simple, clean look and feel. After experimenting with a variety of patterns and different tones of woods, the Spacia collection achieved the perfect aesthetic for the rooms. The depth and original choice from the Signature range was also ideal for many of the communal areas. Also, ensuring long term durability throughout the building was vital, in order to keep maintenance costs to a minimum - and we know both Amtico collections are sure to last for many years."
