A high-end contemporary development, featuring Kährs wood flooring across a range of surfaces, has been awarded “The RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award.” Selected from a shortlist of twelve projects, the striking St Andrews’ development – by Sutherland Hussey Harris – includes 14 individual properties, designed to optimize natural light and stunning views. Property Developer, Eastacre specified Kährs pale-toned Oak Brighton for application across floors, staircases and walls. All materials were supplied and installed by Edinburgh-based G L Floors.
Located on West Burn Lane, within the historic Old Town conservation area, the Eastacre project includes two and three bedroom apartments, duplexes and a showcase penthouse. During judging, the RIAS panel looked for projects that showed “innovation and design excellence, irrespective of size or type”, as well as detailing, accessibility, environmental issues and technical skill. Throughout the properties, Kährs Oak Brighton was used to create a seamless, rustic design feature across a range of surfaces, including the hallways, living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms and adjacent walls. The total installation spanned over 1,000m2.
Kährs Oak Brighton is a one-strip wood floor from the Sand Collection. Crafted in Sweden from sustainable European Oak, the rustic design has a lively grain and is enhanced with a durable white matt lacquer prefinish.
