Realising a design vision, combining Education with Hospitality required a specialist flooring solution - enter the talented GH Commercial design team, with a vibrant customised answer that brought the whole project to life.
William Angliss Institute is Australia’s largest specialist training facility for Foods, Tourism, Hospitality and Events Education and Training, providing a wide selection of short courses, accredited traineeships and apprenticeships, certificates, diplomas, bachelor and master degrees. Operating for over 80 years, they provide training for local and international students on campus or through workplace training right across the country, with international consultancy services earning them global acclaim.
Paul Morgan Architects (PMA) were tasked with developing the Hotel School section of the Melbourne Campus, creating interactive classrooms with an identifiable hospitality aesthetic. Along with incorporating the William Angliss branding livery of orange and black, the flooring also needed to support way finding and zoning measures to help students transition between spaces.
Carnival Magic Custom Carpet
Selecting from our vast on-line library, the distinctive Carnival design, a regularly tracking pattern of elongated hour-glass shapes, was colour customised using Designer Jet® technology. Running across a black background, the bright citrus motifs delivered a sense of fun and energy to the space, perfect for encouraging socialisation and stimulating creativity.
This was juxtaposed with a muted herringbone patterned carpet produced in the same colour palette and used to delineate breakout areas and walk-ways. Seamlessly bridging the divide between Education carpet and Hospitality carpet, the 1.96m wide cut pile Designer Jet® sheets, teamed distinctive design flair with high grade commercial flooring.
Australian Made Designer Jet®
Designer Jet® offers incredible flexibility, with clients able to preview PDFs of carpet features and layouts for fail-safe projects. Using precision engineering to inject dye directly into the pile, the print technology can replicate virtually any image, logo, drawing or pattern, in a near limitless palette of colours, for absolute freedom of design.
Available in a variety of sizes, surface textures and backing types, from carpet tiles and planks to 17oz or 26 oz 1.96 wide carpet rolls, tailor made for hallways and corridors, all Designer Jet® products are stain resistant and rated ACCS Contract Heavy or Extra Duty, making them ideal for just about any commercial project.
Designer Jet® products can be turned around in as little as three weeks* from approval of final design, are proudly manufactured in Australia and are all certified Declare Red List Free, meeting stringent sustainability and toxic free chemical standards.
