Concrete, steel and glass highlight the stark design and strong architectural features of this former World War II bunker, built in 1939 in Hamburg. The ultimately industrial space has been transformed into a light-filled and modern home, in which dark wood floors and insets of bronze and marble add an air of elegance.
The home was designed as an open-plan living space with the bedroom separated from the main room with a crittall-style glass. Floor-toceiling windows were added to let natural light in. The impression has been softened by using a dark wood floor. Oak Attebo is 3-strip oak floor with deep and dark flashes of charcoal with an underlaying glow of warm nuances. It features a dynamic surface treatment that is handscraped, sawn, brushed and bevelled.
Dark wood floors create a solid ground. They bring a sense of sophistication and richness to the interior. They never seem to go out of fashion, they are always trendy and in style. The contrast between dark wood floors and bright, light walls for many people epitomize a sophisticated and upmarket style. Our dark floors come in many designs and surface treatments.
