In collaboration with market leading Astina Group, GH Commercial brought to life luxury design visions with a series of custom flooring solutions.
The family-owned Astina Group believe luxury experiences are not just for 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, 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 GH Commercial design team worked closely with Astina Group to ensure their clear vision was realised. Beginning in the guest bedrooms, Feltex Spinifex, a 100% flecked wool broadloom carpet, was chosen for its underfoot softness and durability. Classically neutral Sand Storm, created the perfect backdrop for bold cobalt and bronze furnishings.
Complementing each suite’s streamlined kitchen and living areas, Apollo Hardwood in Spotted Gum Natural, gives warmth and textural appeal of timber combined with hybrid flooring technology that delivers an easy-clean, waterproof and impact resistant surface.
Custom Magic With Designer Jet®
Using GH Commercial's world class Designer Jet® technology, a 1.96m wide carpet was designed and created to the specifications of Joanna Schrumpf, the Astina family executive. After scouring a host of interior style sources, she settled on a complex design idea simply not available as a ready-made carpet option. This free from 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® 170z cut pile sheet was a thing of beauty.
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 sheet, 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, a series of spectacular hand-tufted wool blend rugs were created for the foyer area. Incorporating the signature palette of cream, 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.
