Aspire House featuring LooseLay French Grey Oak

Aspire House, Plymouth

Karndean Designflooring

Aspire House in central Plymouth offers high quality student accommodation. Close to the city’s universities and colleges, this new build development has been designed with an efficient use of space for generous sized rooms and a modern, stylish interior.

The apartments provide residents with high specification private and social spaces, offering a home from home environment that has been designed to enable students to relax, study and socialise.

The developer, Creative Construction, opted for one of our easy-fit LooseLay designs. With its contemporary grey tones, unique grain details and lightly brushed surface texture, French Grey Oak provides a clean and neutral base for a light and airy interior with vibrant pops of colour.

Creative Construction’s Director, Joe Taylor, explained; “The development needed a high quality and hard-wearing product to suit the demands and traffic of Aspire House. We selected Karndean flooring in all the student rooms and the entrance lobby, using the same design to give a sense of continuity and flow. 

“Karndean’s LooseLay is an ideal product for a luxury student building. We liked the fact that the range is easy to install and low maintenance yet has a high-end design that fits well with the look we were after.”

Our LooseLay range is particularly suitable for shared living spaces, offering a realistic wood design for a home from home environment yet durable enough to cope with the demands of student living.

Communal living often presents challenges for sound levels, potentially disturbing students’ sleep and study. LooseLay features pre-attached acoustic layers and so can reduce noise transfer to the floor below by 13dB, helping to create a more peaceful environment. 

Karndean flooring is designed for a long, low-maintenance life. With a 0.55mm wear layer, the LooseLay range is hard wearing and able to stand up to high levels of footfall. Easy to maintain and shrug off spills, stains and scratches, a Karndean floor is easy to keep clean with a brush and damp mop with a pH neutral detergent. However, should damage occur to areas of the flooring, the loose lay format means that single planks can be easily lifted and replaced when necessary.
