This is a super luxurious West Los Angeles, condominium in the Westwood Area in the Wilshire corridor Everything streamlined, and modern! The design team here desired that feel for the floor, but with a touch of warmth and softness that only a wood surface can add.
They settled on a very clean first grade maple floor in 6 inch planks. Smooth sanded to perfection, on site, and finished natural, with four coats of industrial grade water based low VOC finish. The process required us to instal a noise reduction layer per the specs of the homeowners association. We ordered a custom engineered planking for the Maple in order to control the quality of what was used, and not fall victim to the grading of an overseas large mill. The engineered backing allowed for the floor to be glued directly to the noise proofing, keeping the finished height minimal. The result, is spectacular, and everybody is very satisfied.
