London’s iconic premium health and fitness club, Harbour Club Chelsea, has undergone an extensive refurbishment including a custom floor and wall tile specification.
Incorporating the reception area, changing rooms and shower areas; we delivered a mixture of looks across more than 2,000m2 of space.
Throughout the reception, a marble-look ceramic tile in a combination of matt and polished finishes has been used to striking effect, setting the scene for members stepping into the luxurious, state-of-the-art health and fitness club. Along the walls of corridors, we sourced a sleek large-format porcelain tile in an off-white matt finish.
To provide a sense of flow, architect Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson has continued the same off-white tile onto the changing room walls, before moving to a high-impact grand marble-effect wall tile in the shower area. Within the female changing rooms, the light veined marble look has been complemented with a pearl floor tile that has excellent slip-resistant properties. For the male changing rooms and to harmonise with the dark veined marble wall tiles, the same porcelain tile has been chosen in a tobacco colourway, providing a safe and durable surface underfoot.
Despite the numerous finishes from different manufacturers chosen for Harbour Club Chelsea’s luxury interior, we were able to manage every aspect of the tile specification process. From presenting viable options with the performance required for the busy health and fitness venue, to their sourcing and timely delivery to site; we’ve demonstrated our ability to work with architects and designers to develop unique solutions to the challenges of their project.
The tiles were expertly installed by contractor DDI Projects, a specialist retail and leisure fit-out and construction company.
