Walk this way – carpets at ASB North Wharf


Innovative uses for traditional materials are a hallmark of the ASB North Wharf building fit-out, and carpet is no exception. The building features eight different carpets supplied by leading carpet manufacturer Godfrey Hirst New Zealand.

One of these collections, Sunrise in the colour Billabong, wraps an entire curved wall to create an aqua pod that semi-encloses a meeting room. A blue carpet tile was selected for the floor to match the curved walls. The area resembles an upturned boat hull, with the blue carpet providing special visual appeal while also offering acoustic advantages.

The bulk of the carpet tiles in the office areas are from the softly flecked Illuminate range of solution-dyed nylon tiles. These are complemented with Brilliant solution-dyed nylon tiles in the colour black with silver patterning. In other areas, brightly coloured Rainbow Designer Jet carpet tiles define different breakout pods and meeting rooms.

Godfrey Hirst carpet tiles were specified not only for their visual appeal – the other key considerations were durability and environmental impact. The tiles are 100% PVC free, contain a minimum of 60% recycled content in the backing structure, and earn 100% of the carpet points available under the Green Star NZ rating tool.
