The 4217 Retail Floor
Revamping the old Gold Coast bus terminal floor was all about simplicity. The existing concrete had tremendous character and all it needed was the right product to let it shine. The right product came in the form of a frosted clear finish, which provided the functional, easy-to-clean surface the developers wanted and honoured the history of the floor nicely.
Client - The 4217
Location - Surfers Paradise, QLD
Floor Type - Urban Village (Retail and Commercial)
Design Scope -
- With the existing concrete having tremendous history and character, a clear flooring system was selected to draw this out further and provide a good fit for the trendy vibe of the new urban village.
- A semi-gloss finish was chosen to enhance the natural lighting in the area without increasing maintenance demands.
- While the right look was a priority, the client also needed a durable, easy-to-clean floor to replace the original green carpet.
- Every effort was made during preparation to preserve the condition of the concrete. All the stains, patch materials, cracks and other imperfections were kept to add an extra, rustic dimension to the floor.
