Amtico's blue and white bespoke laying pattern flooring gives an up-tempo vibe to a restaurant in Castleford
Amtico flooring has been specified for a new 155m2 restaurant in Castleford, Yorkshire. The funky and colourful flooring design has been incorporated into the interior fit-out of Giraffe’s Burger & Cocktails restaurant in Xscape, one of the largest entertainment venues in North West England.
Designed in a bespoke bold, white and blues laying pattern, the project uses Amtico’s Signature range to bring a 1950s and 60s Californian surf vibe to the restaurant. Located on the ground floor of the Xscape entertainment complex, the interior offers visitors a trendy space to tuck in to delicious burgers and sweet potato fries while listening to some great music.
Bold, creative and beautiful, the flooring pattern at Burgers and Cocktails was tailored to the project’s individual requirements. Using Amtico products including Composite Calcium, Paris and Helsinki, the in-house design team at Giraffe worked with hospitality designers Harrison to create a bespoke geometric laying pattern. The in-house creative team at Amtico provided advice on product choice, laying patterns and finishes, while CAD experts worked with the project’s designers and client to perfect the design ready for manufacture.
As a restaurant and bar in an extremely busy venue, the flooring needed to withstand high levels of footfall all year round. The luxury vinyl tiles from the Signature collection provide an easy to clean, hard wearing and affordable solution, while offering a stylish and creative flooring that reflected the brand’s ideals. Amtico’s advanced cutting capabilities and unrivalled range of products turned a unique vision into reality.
Kevin Grima, creative director at Harrison said: ‘This new restaurant concept is highly visual and colourful, so the bar and restaurant spaces needed to be fresh and up-tempo. The use of Amtico has helped to ensure the areas are a clear reflection of the brand, while offering excellent durability for a venue that receives high levels of footfall all year round.’
Signature is Amtico’s flagship collection of 163 products: 69 Woods, 43 Stones and 51 Abstracts. This sophisticated collection combines original palettes, distinctive patterns and stunning details. The design-led, high-performance LVT products have a total thickness of 2.5 mm and a 1 mm wear layer. Signature products also carry a 20 year warranty, providing added peace of mind for areas that receive high levels of footfall, such as restaurants.
