Ten Degrees, developed by Greystar, is the world’s tallest modular residential building. The build-to-rent scheme in Croydon boasts 546 apartments across two adjoining 44- and 38-storey towers, as well as 10 different social spaces, including a games lounge, coworking space, dining room and gym.
Greystar’s designers originally envisioned using timber flooring for the high-spec amenity areas but instead opted for the durability of Amtico’s Signature LVT. The cool brown base and lightly limed grain of Manor Oak was chosen to add texture and a premium aesthetic, creating a calming and relaxed atmosphere in the open-plan social and co-working spaces.
Amtico Signature Manor Oak was used throughout Ten Degrees, perfectly blending the work and leisure spaces to create a sense of community. The Wood softens the areas and offers a more homely atmosphere for the residents using the flexible workspace and private dining room or enjoying the views from the sky lounge.
Greystar’s designers chose a combination of timeless laying patterns to add character to the contemporary building. The artisan feel and large-scale chevron design of Halcyon Pleat guides residents through the spaces and draws the eye towards individual areas, such as the games and sky lounges. Inspired by traditional parquetry, Castel Weave makes a decorative and sophisticated statement in the meeting rooms, for a stylish yet professional office look.
"We specifically requested Amtico LVT due to the very high standard of finishes and options available. We briefed our designers to specify Amtico LVT in any areas that timber flooring was originally envisaged to be used. The way the laying patterns have been laid throughout the amenity areas adds character to the modern building."
