One the Elephant

Houston Cox completed the feature bookcase wall in One The Elephant residents reception area.

The design included for all structural steel support work from ground to first floor slab. It was encased in a timber framework over clad in MDF panels finished in a Microcrete resin finish. Apertures were left to insert the bespoke veneered bookcase joinery which tapered front to back and included a clear reeded glass back.

Provisions were made to allow the incorporation of MEP services for the fire alarm panel in the reverse side of the bookcase.

Houston Cox developed the concept design to incorporate a feature preserved moss wall in the main reception of One the Elephant.

We were able to coordinate our design with the moss wall specialist ensuring that we were able to provide a suitable substrate for the product, as well as developing a metal profiled frame encasing the overall moss wall build up which allowed it to seamlessly sit within a panelling arrangement of other materials such as timber, glass and resin walls.
