Floors for high-end halls

Amtico's flagship Signature Collection is used to enhance social and studio spaces at a new student halls of residence in Cardiff

In association with

Amtico's Signature flooring has been specified in a new student halls project in Cardiff designed by Stride Treglown for Fusion Students. Windsor House is a scheme of 312 luxurious studio and ‘twodio’ apartments designed for the private student market.

High-spec living accommodation is complemented by carefully designed social spaces, including a club lounge, games room, residents’ bar, on-site cinema, study rooms and gym. The new flooring has been specified from Amtico's flagship range of high-performance LVT products to complete the exclusive surroundings in all studios and social spaces, with each design achieving a unique aesthetic and purpose.

Inspired by a high-end London restaurant, Amtico Stone products have been laid in a distinctive parquet pattern throughout the communal areas of Windsor House – merging blacks and whites to guide people into the building and draw the eye towards individual areas. In the studio apartments, lounge, bar and study rooms, Amtico Woods soften the spaces and offer a more calming and relaxed atmosphere. Completing the project, Abstract flooring fills the corridors to deviate the eye from the long, linear lines.

The designers chose from Amtico's Signature collection which consists of 163 products: 69 Woods, 43 Stones and 51 Abstracts. The tiles have a total thickness of 2.5mm and a 1mm wear layer, making them hard wearing and versatile for projects across a wide range of commercial sectors, from healthcare to education, retail to hospitality and leisure. The product also achieves the top A+ BREEAM/BRE1 Green Guide rating.

Paul Miles, head of construction at Fusion, says: 'There is an inherent quality to Amtico that makes it perfect for our student Accommodation projects. With such excellent durability and long lifespan, Amtico represents great value for Fusion Students’ accommodation. We’re really happy with the finished product and, with our company looking to standardise building designs, we will certainly be using it on future projects.'

Amtico has recently created fresh palettes for its Signature Collection grouped around tone and texture, as well as introduced a wider range of cool tones and new designs focused on versatile colour blends.
