Herringbone Wood Floor for Heritage Apartment

In the heart of Auckland’s vibrant High Street, a heritage apartment sought a flooring solution that would honor its classic authenticity while meeting modern durability standards. The challenge was to blend timeless aesthetics with practicality, catering to both the apartment’s historical charm and its contemporary living requirements.

Technical Details

The flooring chosen for this project is in the Whisky Sour colour, a part of our Vienna Woods Distilled Collection. Whisky Sour adds a touch of elegance and history to the home. Lithuanian oak is renowned for its durability and density, a result of the slow growth caused by the region’s average temperature of 8 degrees Celsius. This slow growth process allows the timber to develop a dense, solid structure with unique and intriguing colouring and grain profiles.

Design and Aesthetic

The design of the home is a perfect blend of modern and classic styles, with the herringbone parquet flooring adding a touch of timeless elegance. The client desired a flooring option that could withstand the rigors of daily life while complementing the apartment’s high ceilings. It was crucial to preserve the space’s historical integrity while enhancing its visual appeal with a luxurious finish.

Fun Fact: The Whisky Sour Cocktail

Like so many spirits and cocktails, we can thank sailors for this delicious cocktail. The Whisky Sour was a perfect combination of citrus, to combat scurvy, and whisky to quench the sailor’s thirst. This cocktail embodies sophistication and a rich history, much like our Whisky Sour-coloured oak flooring.

The installation of the timber flooring not only revitalized the apartment’s interior but also exceeded the client’s expectations in terms of aesthetics and performance. The lacquer finish provided a resilient surface that required minimal maintenance, ensuring long-lasting beauty without compromising on functionality.

BRINGING BOTH THE DRAMATIC AND THE ROMANTIC TO LIFE.

Vienna Woods invites you to view a new project recently completer for a beautiful home in Auckland utilising our Highland Grey timber from the Vienna Woods Chateau Collection. The home was originally constructed in the style of Brutalism, characterised by its construction that showcases the bare building materials and structural elements over decorative design. The open spaces within the home attract a varying array of light throughout the day, so it was important to select a timber that offered a warm, natural undertone in contrast to the concrete structures surrounding it. The Vienna Woods Highland Grey timber offers exactly what this space needs, offering both a bit of drama, and at the same time, complimenting the natural light on those romantic or sleepy afternoons. 

Working closely with our clients on these projects is always a fantastic experience, and we have fallen in love with this home, just as they have. This client had a vision and knew exactly what they wanted, and were delighted to see their vision come to life. Here’s what the client had to say upon the completion of this project: 

Absolutely incredible service. Miguel is the best in the business and the whole process from beginning to end was seamless. We are beyond happy with our beautiful new floor. Thanks so much our whole home feels modern, fresh, and like brand new!”
