The Biophilic Office Project

There is a wealth of evidence to suggest that, by incorporating biophilic design into our built environments, we can increase our health and wellbeing. Biophilic design acknowledges that we are instinctively connected to nature and that, through exploring this connection within the spaces that we live, relax and work in, we can positively influence our physical and psychological health. Oliver Heath, Director of Oliver Heath Designs, knows his stuff.

Farrell & Clark installs vibrant flooring at University of Leeds with Amtico

Finding a modern and vibrant flooring solution for an old building can be challenging, especially when the building needs to represent the creative talents of those inside.

University of Leeds

The University of Leeds encountered this specific challenge when looking to update the ‘dark and bland stairwell’ of its Clothworkers’ South Building.

The flooring in the building had remained the same for over 60 years and, unsurprisingly given the heavy foot traffic, was starting to show its age, with cracks beginning to appear.

Having been brought in by the University of Leeds to find a solution to updating the floor, architects Farrell & Clark were looking for a distinctive and vibrant design that could withstand the high traffic of a university building.

Ian Whalley, from Farrell & Clark, says the university ‘wanted to introduce visitors to the School of Design, by demonstrating its creativity as soon as they came through the entrance’.

As such, Amtico’s Signature collection was chosen to reinvigorate the building. A variety of bright colours were used to differentiate each floor and each stair riser was given the tone of the approaching floor level.

‘The multiple colours and laying patterns of the Signature collection, as well as the fact that the wear layer is greater than in other products on the market, all led to Amtico being chosen,’ Ian tells us.

From the University of Leeds’ point of view, the solution came with two significant benefits. Firstly, as mentioned, the flooring is designed to withstand high wear and has a 20-year warranty. Secondly, Farrell & Clark noted how quickly the flooring was installed, meaning the university wasn’t inconvenienced with long-lasting installation work.
