Alto Apartments

“We put a lot of thought into our projects, focusing on a sense of space instead of individual taste. Because we come from architectural backgrounds, this influences our methodology and provides us with the technical ability to realise our design. We try to create synergy between exterior and interior. Working closely with the architects on this project, we designed the apartments from inside out, with functional and spatial needs influencing the external form of the building. This is how you get coherent designs that stand the test of time.” Speaking is Vesna Aksentijevic of interior design company FLINT, which is based in London, UK. She talks about FLINT’s work as interior designers for the apartments and entrance of Alto in Wembley Park... More

Quadria Capital

This interior design brief was for a luxury Hedge Fund office space in Singapore. We were required to create a stylish, comfortable office that offered a variety of different break-out areas where staff could remove themselves from the intensity and immediate stress, even if only momentarily.The project site was situated on the upper floors of three combined shophouses, which provided an unconventional space due to the original architecture of the building. This presented the opportunity to be extremely innovative with the interior design layout, and allowed us to include a secluded library, hidden breakout area, generous lounge, pantry, boardroom, and even private offices.Wanting to preserve the architectural features of the buil...

Zernike College

Located in the Dutch municipality of Haren, Zernike College is an educational establishment, that currently accommodates 1450 pupils and 150 members of teaching staff. Both, the school authorities and the architect, were keen for the new BREEAM-certified building to focus on sustainability – in everything from the building structure to the interior fittings. There were three key specifications in the invitation to tender: a sustainable approach when choosing materials and erecting the building structure, a facility management system intended for a 40 to 60-year period of use, and a design concept that would allow the school complex to accommodate changing requirements and be used for public events without causing disruption to the learnin...

Pohang University of Science and Technology

POSTECH - Pohang University of Science and Technology is a small private polytechnic located in Korea, which is already considered one of the best private universities in the world, despite its relatively short history. With plenty of space both in the external campus and inside the structure, the designers at Kukbo Design decided to pave the vast interior floor with Lapitec. The large sunny lecture halls were thereby made even brighter by applying Bianco Polare Lapitec, with the Lux finish. On the other hand, the common area alternates Bianco Polare with darker bands of Nero Antracite Lux. More

Meersalz Manufaktur

“White gold” from Sylt meets wineo® flooring “Meersalz Manufaktur” in List on the island of Sylt produced the first German sea salt. The power behind this ingenious idea was a passionate 2-star chef who wished to create “my own authentic product for Sylt, be an ambassador for pleasure and nature, and turn a vision into reality”, explains Alexandro Pape, owner-manager. Cum grano salis – quite literally The choice of flooring for the premises was particularly crucial. Salt constitutes a massive challenge when it comes to the mechanical burden that floor covering has to endure. And since the latter is exposed to those hard grains of salt in the sales and production rooms day in, day out, very high standards were demanded with regard t... More
