Case study: Havwoods gets underfoot in Nokken cabins

Going beyond a simple wood cabin design, Nokken is a new retreat hospitality concept that combines the best in desirable, eco-conscious and considered architecture, making it a perfect match with the functionality and flair of Havwoods wood flooring…

Claiming to be the world’s most adaptable modular cabin ecosystem, Nokken has been purposely designed by creators Nathan Aylott and James Van Tromp to offer the most efficient and economic platform possible for hotel operators and landowners to start or diversify a retreat hospitality offering. Comprising rustic, industrial and contemporary styles, the cabins boast interior flair and functionality, creating the perfect asset to host small or large groups. Supporting this aesthetic, Havwoods was commissioned to provide the wood flooring.

The custom boards from Havwoods were selected for their soft appeal and rustic textures to complement the dominating dark colourways and natural features. Accentuating the scheme further, the floor works in perfect cohesion with the ceiling, chairs and neutral colourways seen on the curtains, evoking themes of relaxation and calm.

The cabin interiors have been inspired by the essence of the outdoors, which purposely reinforces a sense of escapism and a greater connection and emphasis to the landscape. With the interiors clad in wood the overall feeling is soft, welcoming and embracing, complimented by matching joinery and zonal lighting. The large floor-to-ceiling windows allow for plenty of natural light to flood the cabin, elegantly reflecting off the lightly toned planks and complementing the outside view  resulting in a beautiful full wood-on-wood scheme.
