Situated in East London, Royal Albert Dock is an exciting regeneration project worth £1.7bn. The new commercial district boasts 4.7 million sq ft of office, residential, retail and leisure spaces. Developer ABP tasked design and build company Egg Group with creating different styles, and completing the fitout, for each floor of the four-story Marketing Building.
The finished office building boasts a welcoming design with zoned areas in Amtico LVT and carpet to sensitively balance wellness in the workplace with efficiency. Egg Group selected a variety of designs from the Signature and Access LVT collections, and Check, Variations and String Theory carpet collections, to fitout the open-plan CAT A space, allowing prospective buyers and tenants to visualise how the building can be transformed.
On each floor, Amtico Carpet was used to help identify zones, with the neutral tones of Check Melton and Check Broadcloth creating a base for formal meeting areas, and the colourful pattern of Stringworks Kaleidoscope, from the String Theory collection, highlighting an informal yet functional space to sit with clients.
When considering the raised access floor and the number of services below it, the team at Egg Group looked to Amtico’s Access loose lay collection to provide a durable, yet stylish, floor that can be lifted and refitted as required. Access is designed to work seamlessly with other Amtico LVT and Carpet collections, making it possible to create and define zones using different shape, colour and texture combinations. Egg Group created two bespoke Access designs; the sweeping linear grains of Dusky Walnut surround the kitchen area in a Pleat-inspired pattern, and rustic Sun Bleached Oak is laid in a Palisade-style.
“We selected Amtico because they are a well-known brand that provides a huge variety of quality luxury vinyl tile and carpet products, which allowed us to be creative with our designs and provide three distinctive styles to show prospective buyers and tenants. We used a combination of products, patterns and colours to subtly divide the spaces and create zones for different activities and functions.” – Jamie Sirett, Design Manager Egg Group
