Courtesy of our Danish colleagues, here are some pictures of the newly refurbished M/S Maritime Museum in Helsingør, Denmark. Working closely with architects BIG (Bjarne Ingles Group), they’ve created a custom finished oak floor for this special project. The floor acts a ‘bridge’ between the concrete, glass and steel in the interior, housed in an amazing 150 metre long, old concrete dock.
The brief was for a floor with a rustic quality to match the raw and patinated concrete of the old dock and the result is a solid, brushed oak floor which gives contrasting warmth to the overall impression of the museum. When natural light hits the surface of the floor at an angle, it creates a spectacular effect.
