ABOUT THE PROJECT
Client: The Jubilee Academy
Designer: Falkus Joinery: Design & Build
Project type: supply & fit
Joinery requirements: Reception desk
Address: Lowlands Road, Harrow
The Jubilee Academy were in desperate need of a brand new reception desk and so approached the joinery and commissioned the team to design and build a splayed angle reception desk.
Being fanatical about woodwork we wanted to really focus on the quality of the material and finish and so we opted to choose a timber that would complement its surroundings to offer that wow factor when guests visited the school.
Using a clear oiled America Maple worktop, we wanted to add a little character and so inserted capping and skirting detail as well as plain white Formica panels & fronts.
The solid maple was chosen due to the strength of the timber, while the finish [Matt Osmo] to future proof the reception desk for years to come.
We used a traditional joinery method – tongue and groove – to install a solid board top to ensure the longevity of a reception desk and to help it withstand the everyday impacts of a busy school.
