A Sight for Sore Eyes

We have been at our most creative to help transform the shop space at Bailey & Nelson’s new Clapham store in to a smart new boutique.

The building had an old timber floor, so needed a structural dry screed board installing over floor joists to ensure our MC Poured Solo resin flooring could be applied seamlessly to the entire floor. A robust solution for a busy retail space.

New plaster stud walls were coated with Solacir® Interiors Microscreed to give them a solid concrete look and our design flair allowed different coloured icons to be stencilled within the wall surface.

The combination of contemporary resin flooring and the mineral finish of the walls creates a subtle background to show off the stylish eyewear on offer at Bailey & Nelson.

Bay 5 Coffee

This is one of our favourite projects, not just because it is close to home and the coffee, cakes and ice creams are fabulous, but because we tried something different and it worked really well.

A decorative concrete floor finish at Bay 5 Coffee was engineered to suit a tight budget, a quick turnaround and a rustic design that would complement the interior of this converted lifeguard station right on the beach front of Barry Island.

Definitely worth a visit this summer if you are visiting South Wales.

Microscreed at Harrods

We were delighted to have been chosen by Architects Franklin Azzi to install Solacir Interiors Microscreed flooring for Isabel Marant at Harrods.

The neutral Ceres colour gives a subtle finish to the natural Microscreed flooring that blends in well with the Italian marble walls.

This Microscreed floor can be found in the International Designers section of Harrods on the First Floor.

Toms’ New London Store

Our latest Solacir Interiors Microscreed floor has been installed at the new Toms store just off Carnaby Street in London.

We are delighted to have worked with a such progressive company as Toms and encourage everyone who visits to see a Microscreed floor to buy something, even if it is just a coffee to earn the benefit of there ‘one to one’ charity scheme.

Toms Microscreed Floor

It is hard to tell from the finished photos, but the existing floor is not solid, it is a suspended floor on timber joists. Floored Genius’ technical expertise has enabled us to engineer a solution to give the client a floor with a solid concrete finish.

Refurbishment projects can be tricky, so a versatile material like Solacir Interiors’ Microscreed is ideal for an old building in London with an existing timber floor that requires a contemporary concrete finish.

Only Solacir Interiors Microscreed has enough tensile strength to be laid on to suspended substrates. Don’t be fooled by cheap imitations !

Goodbye to 2014

2014 has been a busy year for Floored Genius.

Although our focus started with providing quality floors for the private home, we have also ventured in to the commercial market.

We started small scale with some interesting Microscreed retail projects for Yacco Maricard, the Stow Brothers and Aphrodite. 

However, it didn’t take long to generate real interest with designers and Architects as Solacir Interiors’ Microscreed is such a versatile product.

A stunning feature staircase was encased in Microscreed for UKTV at their new Hammersmith offices.

An innovative seamless Microscreed floor was installed on top of raised access flooring for Octopus Investments at their new offices at 33 Holborn and the same for SEB at 1 Carter Lane. 

Who’d have thought that you could have a ‘crack free’ concrete finish on top of existing raised access flooring ! 

Looking forward to 2015 as we develop more interesting opportunities for Solacir Interiors’ Microscreed.

Stow Brothers Project

Stow Brothers

We’ve had a great time up in Walthamstow working with estate agents Andrew and Kenny – aka the Stow Brothers – to create a gorgeous floor for their stylish new offices.

The concrete Microscreed finish complements the modern aesthetic of the space and is designed to stand up to the rigours of a full-time working environment without wearing down or becoming shabby:

We wanted to create a professional, contemporary environment that had a bit of an ‘edge’ to it. The Microscreed looked so good with the exposed brickwork in the walls – it really completed the style we were going for, and the installation process was so simple. We love it!

Andrew Goad – The Stow Brothers 

When we started the job it took a lot of work to even out the floor; it needed preparation with diamond grinders and an epoxy primer along with our Microscreed system. But we managed to get the whole thing done as quickly and painlessly as possible in time for their grand opening last month.

 

You can find more images of the work we’ve done with Andrew and Kenny along with some other of our designs and ideas on our Pinboard.

Microscreed in Marylebone

Yacco Maricard, the Japanese design house have opened a second shop in London to showcase their unfussy, classic clothing range, and we were delighted to be asked by Aldworth, James and Bond to provide a microscreed floor surface on top of a new timber substrate. 

Their space was totally transformed as the microscreed gives a natural stone effect (even though it was installed over timber boards) giving a distinctive yet unobtrusive look which sits perfectly with the rich colours of the clothing.

Why not pop along and enjoy the energetic environment of Marylebone Lane to appreciate both the flooring and clothing!

This is a commercial kitchen floor using Addagrip’s epoxy mortar to form the floor and covings. Hygienic, easy to clean, seamless, antislip and of course as with all of our resin floors, it’s beautiful.
