Huller House

Huller House

Caledonian Oak

As part of the Huller & Cheese development, Atkinson & Kirby has provided engineered lacquered flooring for the apartments and penthouses in keeping with the original character of the building.

The Huller & Cheese development, in Bristol, has undergone a huge transformation from a Grade II listed building and former warehouse into 50 new contemporary apartments, that overlook Bristol’s Floating Harbour.

Before the development began, the distinctive characteristics of both listed buildings were taken into consideration. The Cheese Factory has large windows and concrete columns, whereas Huller House has exposed brick, timber and ironwork. In additional to the original structures, two brand new storeys have been added to the buildings, creating six luxury penthouse apartments.

Gollop Contract Flooring Ltd, based in Bristol, handled the specification and installation of the flooring. The company decided to use Atkinson & Kirby’s Caledonian Oak flooring, to add a timeless feel to both Huller House and the Penthouses, whilst also complimenting the traditional features.

Zara Prescott, Communications Executive for Atkinson & Kirby, said: “We are extremely proud that our flooring was selected for this development. Our range is extremely versatile, making it ideal for a variety of applications.”

Andy Gollop, Managing Director of Gollop Contract Flooring, commented: “The challenging part of this project was trying to adhere to the natural, distinctive characteristics of the buildings. However, Atkinson & Kirby’s wide selection allowed us to find the perfect product to suit our requirements.”

Paul Isaacs, Managing Director for Generator South West: said: “We have taken particular care to ensure every aspect of this luxury development has been designed to the highest possible standards. Atkinson & Kirby’s Caledonian collection perfectly suits the high-end interior design, which is consistent throughout the development, and has helped to create a real ‘wow factor’ for potential buyers.
