Happy World Photo Day 2019!
We are lucky to have such an extensive library of images and to celebrate World Photo Day we wanted to share some of our favourite project images with you from over the years. Take a look.
1. Fun Flooring
One of our favourite floors of all time is the decorative epoxy flooring solution used at Mr Funtubbles’ play centre in the Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Durban.
As well as being bright, fun and eye-catching, the seamless and durable floor finish was sure to withstand high levels of footfall as well as the potential for stains from spilled drinks, dropped food, scratches from arcade ride machines and wear from frequent cleaning.
We love how the bright yellow colour was carried through to the coffee shop area, where it was combined with a sleek grey to generate a slightly more understated feel.
2. Fast Flooring
Aside from the great photographs of this glittering terrazzo floor, which utilised British marble aggregates that successfully echoed the luxurious venue in the UK capital, we also love the quick-curing properties of the project!
This speedy installation was fundamental to the project as other trades needed to access the site the day after the flooring was installed, so as to not delay the opening of the restaurant. The terrazzo chosen was fully trafficable after just 2-3 hours.
We love the juxtaposition of the clean and modern terrazzo with the more rustic looking floorboards, helping to add character to the contemporary restaurant.
3. Functional and Flawless Flooring
With the oak casks being the most prominent factor in ensuring and delivering style and quality of The Macallan’s single malt, it is no wonder that the famous distillery pays homage to the casks in a magnificent way.
The mirrored ceiling and high gloss black floor gives a feeling of endlessness to this room, adding a sense of majesty that is truly breath-taking!
4. Artistically Mirroring Architecture
One of our favourite floors from 2018 is the modern and colourful flooring used in the Arte S building, located on Penang’s skyline.
The rippling, curved exterior of the towers was reflected clearly in the interior, from the rounded furniture to the sweeping white line demarcation used to separate grey hues of resin flooring from the bright pink that spreads from the floor to the stairways of the building.
5. Colour as Continuity
As well as interior design reflecting exterior design, we also love when bold colours are used to continue a theme, or reflect brand identity. A great example comes from LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort, where a custom yellow colour was used for the ‘Big Shop’ interior that mirrored the well-known Lego® logo.
To continue the bright and fun aesthetic, the lead up to the store also featured coloured building-block style shapes in the deck coating, reminiscent of Lego blocks!
Reflecting the bright colours of a logo can also be seen in this luxury car washing facility in South Africa. Here, industrial deck coating solutions were used in the car washing and parking areas of the space in vivid yellow and urban light grey that matched Machine WashWorx’s corporate colours.
In the adjacent coffee shop, the floor also conveyed exactly the same aesthetic, even though the materials used for the flooring were very different. This continuation blurred the lines between the industrial and commercial and created an entirely unique space that we love!
6. Textured Treats
Some of the best product photos come from textured flooring – from stone carpets to textured profiles for slip resistance, we had to include these project images!
Whilst utilised for many benefits, including increased slip resistance, textures are also used for visual appeal. Here, two complimentary shades of UV resistant stone carpet systems are used outside, mirroring the three shades of slightly textured flooring used in the interior.
What an interesting aesthetic!
So, you’ve seen some of our favourite project photos, but which are yours?
