Patalab specifies Kährs throughout award-winning Cascade House

Kährs Oak Nouveau Charcoal wood flooring has been installed throughout an award-winning residential development. Situated within London’s historic Hampstead Village, Cascade House spans four floors of a Grade II listed building and incorporates a new two-bedroom dwelling. Kährs’ design was chosen by Patalab Architecture to complement the interior’s purist black and white pallet – and the stunning project has received the FX International Design Award, and Surface Design Award 2015. All flooring was installed by main contractor, ParryPage Projects Ltd.

The external appearance of Cascade House blends into its historic setting, whilst the interior provides a series of bright and contemporary spaces, flooded by natural light. A triple height staircase, with a ‘cascade’ of black-stained treads, provides a central focus and gives the dwelling its new name. Kährs Oak Nouveau Charcoal was chosen to complement the bespoke timber joinery and panelling, which contrast with white ceilings, walls and furniture. The one-strip wood floor is crafted in Sweden from rustic, sustainable oak; design features include a high performance engineered construction, a durable charcoal-grey matt lacquer and a brushed and bevelled surface finish.

“We aimed for a simple, monochrome colour palette that contrasts the complex geometries of the existing Grade II listed building. We chose Kährs’ Oak Nouveau Charcoal wood floor design – to be laid throughout the entire apartment – due to its elegant appearance, proven durability and long lasting performance,” commented Uwe Schmidt-Hess, Founder of PATALAB Architecture.
