KBAC Flooring has supplied and installed the flooring for the new Gauteng offices of Mazars at 54 Glenhove in Melrose Estate, Johannesburg. The new Glenhove Road development by Alchemy Properties was designed by Paragon Architects, with the interiors for the two floors – occupied by leading auditing and accounting company, Mazars – specified by another member of the Paragon Group, Paragon Interface.

The Mazars facilities include open plan and luxury offices, ancillary space, refreshment and catering stations, a joggers’ and cyclists’ shower station, and rooftop entertainment area. The company’s new Gauteng hub brings together 26 partners and over 300 employees.

Kirstin Cavanagh, Associate at Paragon Interface – who was in charge of the interior design of Mazars’ impressive new corporate premises – selected flooring from three KBAC Flooring suppliers for the 2480m2 carpeted areas:

  • 650m2 of Interface Composure field carpet tiles with 75m2 of Interface Heuga 530 colour tiles strategically placed to provide the bright yellow inserts;
  • 1 600m2 Belgotex Berber Point carpet tiles in two different shades of grey for the office areas;
  • 230m2 FloorworX Forbo Marmoelum Real vinyl sheeting in bright colours for the refreshment and catering areas.

Kirstin says the interiors and graphics designed for the Mazars premises were inspired by the surrounding landscape and trees of the Killarney Golf Course and the trees of Melrose Estate with this sylvan tone influencing the materials and use of colour.

“We chose the Interface Composure range for the client meeting suite of the Mazars offices because the combination of the light and dark grey colours provided a rich, luxurious base palette. The carpet tiles are also very serviceable for an area that needed elegance as well as durability to withstand high foot traffic.

The bright yellow gold inlay areas of Interface Heuga 530 were specified to elevate the focal areas within the space and complement the green and blue hues used in the furniture and wallpapers.

“The interior architecture complements the tone of an auditing firm such as Mazars to showcase the company’s corporate values and brand identity,” Kirstin added. Lesley Fidrmuc, KBAC Interface Consultant, says Interface Composure carpet tiles are ideal for creating tranquil contemporary interiors.

“The range mimics the subtle the varying elements of nature to create adaptable, non-directional surfaces suitable for large areas. Interface Composure is available in 21 neutral colours and the range’s ability to blend darker shades and light tones to naturally enhance any space is very popular with creative interior designers,” Lesley explained.

Interface Heuga 530 is available in 24 beautiful shades to provide exceptional design possibilities, particularly when used in the classic carpet tile ‘’checkered’’ inlay style as in the Mazars head office. ‘’This tufted plain textured loop-pile range is ideal for commercial space and has for many years been widely used by specifiers to infuse office floors with stunning colour inlays while also providing outstanding durability.’’

Interface’s renowned focus on sustainability has also become an important factor in South African interior design, Lesley adds. “Interface uses 100% recycled yarn and KBAC employs a ‘green’ method of installation to all the floor plates, applying the tiles with an adhesive with zero volatile organic compound content,” she added.

Now also produced with recycled content, Belgotex’s Berber Point flooring has for long been renowned as an attractive resilient solution for any commercial application. Its durability and hard wearing performance have been proven worldwide, and the flooring range is available in both broadloom and tile format.

The FloorworX Forbo Marmoleum Real flooring supplied by KBAC for the Mazars installation is the largest range in Forbo’s natural linoleum floor coverings and features 59 exciting colours.
