Matte gloss Geoshine™. Random exposure, Basalt and Quartzite with brown oxide.
Polished concrete makes a stylish statement in a chic new lobby for leading Melbourne commercial real estate firm, Cameron.
Geocrete’s Paul Warner was contracted to create the stunning new floor by construction powerhouse The Lettieri Group, who specialise in the design and construction of high-end commercial and industrial building projects in the Dandenong region, and pioneered the stylish, modern showrooms for premium brands, which are now the industry norm. It was Paul’s second job for the group, having already polished a beautiful high gloss floor for their Safety Beach family holiday house.
The reception at Cameron’s head office creates a bold and beautiful statement, with wooden feature walls, a mix of modern pendant lighting, and huge glass windows that allow a plentiful amount of light to flood the space. The two conference rooms that border the reception area are shaped like glass cubes, cleverly creating ultra-modern meeting spaces for clients without blocking natural light to the lobby.
Highly functional yet also utterly memorable, the Geoshine™ polished concrete floor fits perfectly in the design, with its ‘wow’ factor and its slip and stain resistance and easy care qualities.
The floor features an aggregate of basalt and quartzite, with a beautiful brown oxide that captures the concrete’s very earthy tones, not usually highlighted by a standard grey concrete mix.
“With such a large amount of natural lighting, the very low matte finish was a great choice to prevent any dazzling blindness that could occur from the sun’s reflection off the floor. The result is that the entire front office is always radiating a positive energy and bright harmonic atmosphere that is enjoyed by both clients and employees. The polished concrete also helps to reduce the building’s energy consumption by increasing the amount of ambient light in the space, and reducing the demand for artificial lighting and heating.”
