Woods Bagot is a global design and consulting firm, with a team of over 1000 people working across studios in Australia, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and North America. They are ranked the seventh largest architecture firm in the world.
Over the years, Woods Bagot has worked with Havwoods on several workplace and residential schemes. These include a leading developer in the retirement housing sector, and this new fit-out for a major financial services provider in the City of London where they selected Oak Denby from our Henley range, a cobbled, slash sawn plank with a white natural oiled finish.
They were also commissioned to design Havwoods’ own London showroom
To offset the industrial interior of their own new Fittzrovia studio, Wood Bagot chose Henley Oak Studland, a fairly wide (260mm) plank with hand-cut bevels and a distressed surface which makes it less susceptible to the ravages of wear. It also features a white natural oiled finish which emphasises both the grain and the distressing, resulting in a pale coloured plank ideal for a naturally dark basement setting.
“Our clients were please with the quality of their flooring and we felt it would be appropriate to use a similar product for our own work environment.”
