Project Description

Hakwood Pure. 7″ wide, Rustic grade

A working art gallery with constantly changing exhibitions required a floor that could stand up to the traffic, yet still impart a sense of calm to its visitors.

Hakwood’s Pure colour allows the photographic art to take centre stage, while the Rustic grade is forgiving enough that the gallery workers can actually work on the floor. Setting up ladders, moving benches and shifting walls are all part of the life of a hardwood floor in a space like this.

The feature stairs with an effective reveal at the walls draw visitors from the main floor lobby with its polished concrete to the refined hardwood on the gallery level.

Custom inset grilles were commissioned by BC Hardwood for cable management by gallery staff.
