CNX Incorporates Logo Colours with their Flooring Choice in New Office Fit-out

"They wanted a contemporary and sleek interior," says architectural graduate Sarah Burns of Arthouse Architects, "and they wanted the design to bring a 'pop' of colour to the space." A combination of Havelock and Awake carpet tile collections from Advance Flooring provided a sound and durable solution.

Coming from a previous cellular office layout, CNX wanted to create a modern, open-plan office for more fluid communication and collaboration. "With full-height glazing bringing in natural light throughout, we used changes in colour and materiality to break up the space," explains Sarah.

Central walls painted in a charcoal tone have been used for visual contrast, with green-accented carpet tiles running through the mid-grey tiles to identify circulation routes and draw the natural colour through the space. "We were working to a budget," says Sarah, "so the colour in the floor helped create interest and dimension, with the green echoed in the furniture and partitions between desks."

Arthouse worked directly with Advance to create the carpet tile pattern. "We sent Advance a .dwg plan and they came up with a schematic that we could respond to and refine to get it exactly how we needed it." When tiles have a directional pattern, the flooring diagrams also include the orientations of tiles, making tile laying easy for the installers.

Havelock and Awake are NZ stock, commercial-grade carpet tiles that are ideally suited to corporate environments. Available in a range of subtle, natural colours that reflect the local environment, they are Declare Certified and PVC-free, with a 15-year limited warranty.

The main contractor, Corva Commercial Interiors, notes, "It was great to have Advanced Flooring help create a professional fitout for CNX." For Sarah, "Advance are always very helpful when we need to get flooring information. Questions are answered quickly, samples arrive in just a few days, and they are responsive to any last-minute adjustments."
