Case Study: Cardiff City Football Club
Cardiff City Stadium, home to the Cardiff City Premier League Football Team recently shone the spotlight on their hospitality suite with the renovation of selected spaces, including their 12 Executive Boxes. Boasting superior views of the pitch and the option of private dining, the Executive Boxes are designed to offer their occupiers the ultimate VIP experience of Cardiff City Stadium. With the ability to host up to 12 guests the modest space needed to be well considered. The layout flexibility allowed the space to comfortably hold its maximum capacity whilst high spec interior finishes meant a sense of exclusivity could be maintained.
The modern interior designed by BAPTT Group features a neutral colour scheme of grey and white which perfectly complemented the rich blue associated with Cardiff City’s branding. The furniture consisted of high tables and modern leather stools, that could be repositioned depending on the use of the room. The casual set up meant there was plenty of opportunity to mingle, making it the ideal space for intimate dinners, private parties or small meetings.
The white walls were styled with meaningful photography, a reminder to guests that they are in the heart of Cardiff City Football Club, telling a story of the clubs culture and history. For the floor BAPTT installed Expona Commercial Luxury Vinyl Tiles in Dark Recycled Wood. The striking design and high shade variation made a strong statement in the room and finished the interior off well. Whilst aesthetic was key, this was a was also a decision based on practicality. The 0.55mm wear layer and 2.5mm gauge gives the commercial spec LVT range a superior level of durability, meaning the floor covering could easily withstand the kind of heavy footfall you would expect in a social space. Additionally, the range comes complete with a PUR surface treatment, supporting a simple cleaning regime and keeping the interior looking great for longer.
