Junckers solid wood - more than floor

Junckers timber creates a cosy atmosphere on the floors, walls and ceilings at the University of Hertfordshire’s newly refurbished Prince Edward Hall

In association with

More than 1100m² of Junckers timber has been fitted at the University of Hertfordshire’s Prince Edward Hall, not only on the floors, but also on the walls and ceilings to stunning effect. The newly built campus reception, learning zone and café area offers a welcoming, usable space where staff, students and visitors can work, relax or have a bite to eat.

The extended and re-modelled scheme takes the form of a ‘granite box’ which appears to be inserted into the existing building structure on a juxtaposing plane. Drawing on current design principles for creating workspaces, the new addition incorporates many collaborative working spaces as well as informal areas to offer a range of options for when, where and how to work and relax. The interior design plays an important part, using a mix of materials with the natural feel of solid wood taking centre stage.

The interior is lined with Junckers Beech Harmony on the floor while Beech SylvaKet clads the ceiling and walls. The solid wood provides a durable and easy-to-maintain surface appropriate for high-traffic areas. The two types of wood add natural warmth and texture to the open plan spaces and complement each other beautifully. Classic Beech is a light-coloured timber with a golden grain pattern also present in Beech SylvaKet, which has been vacuum fumed for a dark honey coloured appearance. Both timbers can be sanded and refinished without loss of colour. As a natural living material, solid wood creates an ideal indoor climate, naturally retaining heat, maintaining even temperature and balanced humidity levels. The flooring contractor was Junckers’ Approved Contractor PICA Floorings Ltd.
