With its cliff top views and lavish surroundings, the five-star Fairmont Hotel in St Andrews prides itself on offering guests a unique and luxurious getaway. For an exclusive venue like the Fairmont, first impressions are crucial, and they don’t come much more impressive than Russwood’s beautifully aged European oak flooring in Cask.
Running from the hotel entrance through to the Kittocks Bar, the flooring creates a sense of flow between the two areas, adding tone and texture to the design aesthetic. The product also has the benefit of being highly durable, making it an ideal choice for this high traffic area.
Authentically aged Oak
Tasked with revamping the hotel entrance, RPW Design settled on a style that encapsulates a sense of place, making the most of the stunning sea views and local character. They removed the dividing wall between the reception and bar, adding a copper coffee bar to create a more open, sociable space. By replacing the existing tiled flooring with Russwood’s authentically aged oak boards, the designer created a sense of history and warmth that draws visitors inside.
