Here’s our pick of the top 5 apartment projects which caught our eye this month...

MANCHESTER, UK

Project: Deansgate Tower

Havwoods products: HW16006 Bronzo Prime 70mm Block, The Italian Collection 

Developer / Architect: Renaker Build

Located in Manchester’s impressive Deansgate Square Tower project, these established apartments are perfect for those that want to feel the hustle and bustle of the city centre, with sweeping views to match. Our Bronzo Prime boards from the Italian Collection were used throughout the residences to provide a high-quality and timeless finish. Complementing a neutral interior scheme, the flooring creates a welcome contrast by pairing light with dark, delivering on sophistication and durability.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

Project: Darling Island Apartment

Havwoods products: HW16602 Notte Prime 90mm 45 Chevron, The Italian Collection

Interior Designer: Christina Reed Interiors

Renowned for its breath taking landscapes, iconic landmarks and vibrant culture, Sydney is a bustling city with so much to offer. The Darling Island apartment project boasts a harbour front location, with an interior that is synonymous with opulence. Interior designer Christina Reed commissioned Havwoods to add character and warmth to the ‘beige box’ décor. The client requested glamour paired with practical finishes suitable for a young family, which led Christina to our Notte Prime Chevron boards. Decadent thanks to its rich tones and detailed markings, the result is a stunning and stylish space to face whatever life throws at it. 

MILAN, ITALY

Project: Manzoni, Milan

Havwoods products: BPFH13/1609/70 Hartland Rustic 70mm Herringbone, Henley

Installer: Santi Wood Floors Ltd

Designer: Marco Islas

Celebrated for its cultural heritage and timeless architecture, this apartment channels the beauty of Italian design, seamlessly intertwined with modern materials and functionality. A luxurious two-floor residence, the homeowners worked with designer Marco Islas to choose our Hartland Rustic Herringbone boards to complement the Italian parquetry features. The finish of the flooring provides a vintage appeal in a darker tone which works beautifully with the large amount of natural light that floods through the home. 

NEW YORK, USA

Project: Monroe Condominium, Brooklyn, NY

Havwoods products: HW2980 Vierzon 06 Prime 190mm 1-Strip, PurePlank

A new four-store building in New York’s hippest neighbourhood, the Monroe Condominium in Brooklyn offers buyers a crisp and luxurious design scheme with a choice of one and two-bedroom condos. Minimalism is at the heart of this ten-unit building with natural materials and industrial elements running throughout. The Vierzon Prime boards from PurePlank are exceptionally tough thanks to their engineered construction, resulting in the ideal solution for homeowners who love entertaining. The eye-catching markings and wood grain add a uniqueness and depth in the space that contrasts successfully with the neutral colour palette.

LONDON, UK

Havwoods products: HW16621 Lava Prime 90mm Chevron, The Italian Collection

Designer: Jam by Hedayat

An exquisitely designed space in central London, this characterful apartment is home to statement features including a gold-framed internal arched door, a rich colour scheme and exceptional finishes in abundance. Drawing inspiration from the architecture of Beirut, this penthouse underwent a thoughtful redesign which transformed it from top to bottom. A harmonious and elegant interior was achieved, including the addition of the Lava Prime Chevron boards from the Italian Collection, which span the open-plan layout and help tie each area of the home together.
