Graefe has supplied straight grained FSC European Oak Veneer to the home of Macfarlanes, one of the UK’s most prestigious independent law firms. Built within the complex conservation area of Chancery Lane, the carefully considered façade alludes to the highly contemporary, yet functional office space behind. With 77 partners and just a single location in the City, Macfarlanes occupies all four, stunningly designed floors. The project was a finalist for the Office Development Awards 2008.
graefe supplied straight grained FSC European Oak Veneer that was custom matched and laid horizontally, opposed to the standard vertical lay, to dramatic effect. Graefe’s craftsmen used this method extensively on both veneered doors and veneered wall panels – some running the breadth of the building where the natural beauty of wood grain can be seen in the length of the matched veneers. Graefe, who manufacture a wide range of doors, also supplied fire doors with vision panels that were later immaculately spray painted.
