Collaborating again with the market leading Astina Group, GH Commercial were thrilled to realise their unique design visions with a series of custom flooring solutions.

Affordable Luxury

The family-owned Astina Group believe luxury experiences needn’t be the sole domain of the wealthy, building affordable 5-star serviced apartment hotels packed with first-class finishes and amenities. Five years in the making, and a project close to the hearts of Astina Group directors William and Thomas Schrumpf, Astina Suites Penrith is one such property. Beyond the 58 sumptuous two- and three-bedroom suites, rooftop pool, bar, gym and function centre, the project includes ground floor wine bar, dining, retail and commercial offices, encouraging a vibrant hub of day and night activity, right in the heart of the CBD.

The Right Flooring

The talented GH Commercial design team worked closely with Astina Group to ensure their clear vision of uncompromising quality was realised. Beginning in the guest bedrooms, Feltex Spinifex, a 100% flecked wool broadloom carpet, was chosen for its luxe underfoot softness and time-honoured durability. Classically neutral Sand Storm offered the perfect foil for bold cobalt and bronze furnishings.

Complementing each suite’s streamlined kitchen and living areas, Apollo Hardwood in Spotted Gum Natural lent the warmth and textural appeal of timber with the astounding attributes of hybrid technology, delivering an easy-clean, waterproof and impact resistant surface capable of withstanding the toughest guest use.

Custom Magic With Designer Jet®

Things got interesting when Astina family executive, Joanna Schrumpf, looked to source something unique for the property’s many hallways and corridors. After scouring a host of interior style sources, she settled on a complex design idea simply not available as a ready-made carpet option. 

Using the world class technology of our Designer Jet® carpet printer we were able to bring Joanna’s vision to life, creating a 1.96m wide carpet with a bespoke pattern. This free form central image, wrought in creams and golds, bleeds into a striated border of contrast charcoal to form an eye-catching pathway.

The statement carpet trend continued with a dense floral design used to enhance the meeting room spaces. A repeat pattern of stylised flowers in varying blues, bronze and a subtle touch of pink, this Designer Jet® 17oz cut pile sheet was a thing of beauty and true stand-out.

At the forefront of custom carpet creation, Designer Jet® products, produced using near limitless colours and designs, can be turned around in as little as three weeks*. Available in tiles, planks and sheets, with 1.96m wide carpet rolls particularly suited to hallways and corridors, they are easy to install, with less potential wastage than traditional broadloom carpet. Stain resistant and independently rated contract heavy or extra heavy duty under the Australian Carpet Classification Scheme, all our Designer Jet® carpets are officially Declare Red List Free.   

Bespoke Hand Made Rugs

Finally, we created a series of spectacular hand-tufted wool blend rugs for the foyer area of polished concrete. Incorporating the signature palette of creams, gold, pink and charcoal, the runner designs featured abstract shapes and spatters overlaid by deconstructed traditional motifs, with a central circular rug breaking up the space.

Our custom rugs, hand-crafted from a choice of materials such as wool, silk, viscose, and cotton, are available in a large range of surface options for beautifully tactile, premium quality floor furnishings.

The GH Commercial team, aided by our amazing Designer Jet® carpet printing technology, were incredibly proud to contribute to the creative vision and unabashed style of this outstanding Astina Group project.
