Oak Tate Bute herringbone floor with steps Scenario Architects Hackney home with beanbag

A closer look at the herringbone floor in a family home by Scenario Architects

In 2016 the owners of Scenario Architecture, Maya and Ran, were looking to convert and extend a Victorian terraced house in Stoke Newington for their own family. They opted for a Tate floor, in the neutral colour Bute in an eye-catching herringbone pattern. The rough sawn effect, which is a distinctive feature of this range, offers a visual aspect that is specifically appealing to the architectural eye. In this project the textured herringbone battens are used in such a creative way, it made us sit up and take note.

New Hackney Home

When Eelke, Solid Floor's founder, bought an ordinary modern flat off plan in Hackney in 2014, he had a few years to dream up some radical changes. After getting the keys in 2017, he was not afraid to rip out doors and move walls that had only just been erected. Fast forward 3 years and he has created this stunning home with some very clever design tricks that we can all learn from.
