Maple reclaimed parquet in the public areas of a Theater:
The Everyman Cinema, in the new Trinity Shopping Centre, Leeds.
These photographs reveal the foyer, gallery and cafe of a theater fitted by means of a contract flooring firm. Our walnut reclaimed parquet block has been the flooring selected.
The blocks provided by us was at the scruffier end of the reclaimed spectrum as it all had a rug adhesive on the surface. Therefore, as per design specification, the parquet needed to be washed back. However, the cleaning needed to be done without looking too’perfect’. That is no mean accomplishment when you start with glue onto the faces and you also do it ! However the fitters did it and the result looks amazing.
This covered a large area of about 250 sq m and the consequences are brilliant. The gallery has a warm and fashionable feel that we hope the cinema-goers will love when they get a chance to visit.
It really does prove that with some assurance and experience you can find a new life from even the most improbable looking cubes. All credit to those involved with getting the imagination and tenacity to turn the vision into a reality. And the outcome is that more folks get an opportunity to see what a great material reclaimed parquet could be. With a little bit of work!
