How to design a BIG floor

Solid wood floor specialist Junckers and world-renowned Bjarne Ingles Group joined forces to create a custom oak floor at the M/S Maritime Museum, Denmark

In association with

Junckers has installed a customised oak floor inside Bjarke Ingels' (BIG) award-winning M/S Maritime Museum in Helsingør, Denmark. The textured floor acts as a link, bringing together the elements of concrete, glass and steel in the building that is housed in a 150m-long, former concrete dock.

BIG’s brief was for a solid hardwood floor that can withstand the heavy footfall of a national museum, with a rustic quality to soften the raw and patinated concrete and large glass panels featured throughout the building. Junckers has created a textured finish solid oak floor, which gives a contrasting warmth to the overall impression of the museum. By using a specially developed hard brushing technique, the outer sapwood layer of the timber has been removed to leave a strong tactile, textured surface that exposes the beautiful, natural grain patterns in the oak. The floor has then been finished in Junckers Ultra Matt Lacquer resulting in a matt, hard-wearing floor.

The lively two-strip oak floors come into their own in the large, open spaces of the museums galleries. When natural light from the floor-to-ceiling glass wall hits the surface of the floor at an angle, it creates a spectacular effect. Following the success of the project, Junckers has added the incredible textured finish to many of its floors, both two-strip and wide board planks.
