Engineered flooring materials deliver a calm and homely ambience at Folk co-living development – Earlsfield, London

Offering 315 studio apartments plus expansive amenities, communal areas and co-working spaces across two buildings, Sunday Mills co-living development in Earlsfield, South-West London, presents Folk Living’s second unique scheme to open within the last two years – following the success of The Palm House, Harrow. The warm and inviting interior scheme utilises Robur engineered wood flooring together with Pergo wood-look laminate flooring from Domus, helping deliver a sense of timelessness together with a calm and homely ambience for residents – designed by Assael and Atypical Practice.

Balancing design, durability and sustainability requirements

Designed around the brand’s key pillars of community and connection to encourage social interaction and the formation of new friendships and relationships, Sunday Mills offers a variety of shared spaces and amenities for residents alongside individual studio apartments, presenting a warm and inviting environment to reside, relax and work in. Domus worked with the project design team at Atypical Practice to select suitable engineered flooring materials for both the communal areas and apartment interiors – balancing design, durability and sustainability requirements in addition to tight budget and programme management considerations at the specification and fit-out stages.

Sustainably produced, PEFC certified engineered wood flooring – communal & co-working spaces

Within the shared areas, Domus’ Robur Fundamental 180 engineered wood flooring proved the perfect design option to align with the interior scheme and other project requirements – with 750 sqm used in the final scheme across the primary co-working hub space, meeting rooms, feature staircase, mezzanine floor and living room zones, helping create a seamless design aesthetic throughout.

Specified in a light oak colour with subtle white accent (WDRO 801), its soft, natural tone delivers the perfect fit for the scheme’s overall palette; with a brushed finish providing a suitably textured wood grain texture. A UV matt lacquer surface treatment ensures a low-gloss, natural finish resistant to stains and marks, combining the look and soft matt feel of a natural oiled surface with the durability and ease of maintenance of a lacquered floor, well-protected for busy use.

Manufactured in Europe, Domus’ Robur wood flooring utilises cutting-edge production technologies that accommodate critical environmental aspects into all production phases. The raw wood used to make Domus’ Robur collection derives from PEFC-certified timber – a transparent and independent certification system for ensuring sustainable, environmentally friendly forest management. Performed in accordance with strict regulations, PEFC-certified ‘forest certification’ ensures that both suppliers and end-users secure responsibly sourced timber.

Enabling fast and easy installation, Robur engineered wood flooring can be installed in one of two ways via a simple installation system using high-precision connection technology – Floating: fast and glueless method; and Glue-down: a long-lasting method that reduces movement and footfall sound – making it ideal for projects with tight installation schedule restraints.
