Sainsbury’s Head Office Transformation

burmatex carpet tiles at Sainsbury's HQ

At this major refurbishment of Sainsbury’s head offices in London, three ranges of Burmatex® carpet tiles have been used in a tailored scheme across multiple floors.

With such a strongly recognised brand, a key consideration at the forefront of the project was for the renovation to reflect the company’s history and identity. The large colour palettes across multiple Burmatex® ranges make us the perfect choice for this type of request.

This scheme uses multiple greys from the balance and tivoli ranges along with Sainsbury’s signature bright orange highlights from the cordiale range. Two colours – ukrainian orange and bolivian gold – from cordiale were chosen for this installation as the range offers undiluted colour with a strong impact.

Most of the orange inserts are focused within signature areas of the building and faded out in the main offices. Within these spaces central areas using two pale colours of tivoli are boarded by a network of walkways.

These walkways are a striking feature within the final installation – using a combination of full and half carpet tiles and a mixture of four very different greys. The monochromatic colours are randomly laid throughout the offices creating a contemporary finish which complements the refurbishments modern design.
