Luxury vinyl tiles make prize-winning office look like home

A Norwich law firm wanted to create an office environment that looked more like a home than a workplace, so luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) were are an essential part of the interior designed by architects Fielden + Mawson.

The innovative design has received a Highly Commended award in the 2017/2018 Fly Forbo competition held by vinyl flooring manufacturer Forbo.

Architect Josephine Harkins described the design brief for the offices of Norwich lawyers Mills & Reeves:

“The brief was to create a design that felt less corporate than your average office and fused working from home with working in a formal office”.

Autumn Oak luxury vinyl tiles are laid in a chevron design, which creates a warm and homely tone in the cafe and reception areas. LVT was also chosen for these high-traffic areas because of its durability and impact resistance.

Sand tone wood effect tiles were used in the shower room and coffee making areas. These are slip and water resistant tiles designed to last a long time.

There is a trend for people to spend at least part of their working week working from home. Many home workers have offices in their home, but these rarely look like formal office spaces – rather home-style rooms with a desk and storage furniture. Fielden + Mawson has taken this concept and adopted it for the workplace.

Wood effect LVT flooring in your Wrexham office is ideal for creating the feel of working from home.
