Huge 'Medallion'

By clicking on most pictures on this site you can see a larger version.

David Gunton designed this floor for a music room in a home in Cheshire. The room is an extension to the main house. The idea behind it is that, as a stranger approaches the room through a short corridor, attention is drawn to the huge decorative medallion, distracting attention from the main attraction, a concert hall sized organ!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Medallion seen looking towards the corridor to the main house. The organ is to your left, but was still covered with protection at the time this phot was taken.

The medallion is about 3 metres across.

The 'domed' appearance is an illusion generated by the design. The floor is flat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

OK. So here is the organ! Still covered by protection and, as yet lacking its pipes. Not the sort of musical instrument normally found in a privatem house. Wonderful!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The dome effect appears more exaggerated in this photo than in others. It is just as apparent when you are stood upom the floor.

 

 

 

 

Take note of the care taken in ensuring the grain patterns run correctly. In the making of such designs, whilst the wood colours create the contrasts and their grain patterns can add much to the image, in essence it is the design, the geometry, that matters most. Careless choice of the grain in the elements can spoil the image.
