- Bespoke seamless resin terrazzo floor installed in high-end Cape Town restaurant.
- Benguela Cove used Mondéco due to its impressive design versatility.
- Mondéco Earth in two complementary colours was applied in a stylised pattern that reflected the venue’s visual character.
The idyllic wine estate in Cape Town, Benguela Cove, crafted a bespoke, stylised floor in its new restaurant that reflected the venue’s elegant image and that evoked an ambience of luxury and quality.
The Moody Lagoon restaurant has been designed to provide a refined and relaxing dining experience. At the restaurant, guests are treated to amazing views of the Botriver lagoon and out over the Atlantic Ocean while they are served creative dishes made from the freshest produce.
As one of Walker Bay’s most prominent lifestyle estates, it was imperative that every element of the restaurant’s interior design scheme conveyed the development’s sophisticated identity and met its high aesthetic and operational standards. To achieve this, 300 m2 of Flowcrete South Africa’s seamless resin terrazzo system Mondéco Earth was applied across the Moody Lagoon’s floor area.
The terrazzo flooring system was chosen in two complementary colours which were installed in a stylised pattern of geometric squares, rectangles and lines within the restaurant’s seating area.
This eye-catching arrangement of Pebble Grey and Dark Grey reflected the restaurant’s interior visuals, in which classical themes and imagery have been combined with contemporary twists and bold colours. The choice of two muted shades mirrored the décor and made the floor an ideal backdrop for the chairs and soft furnishings, which provide pops of blue and red colour.
This combination of colours and shapes was ideal for the site, where no expense has been spared to fashion a stunning environment of art, colour, views and bespoke interiors. Mondéco Earth further adds to the opulent atmosphere with the inclusion of light-reflective decorative aggregates, which creates a glittering lustre across the finish.
Mondéco Earth can be applied in unique configurations thanks to its special, paint-by-numbers application technique. The desired pattern is laid out in metal trims and then the chosen colour is poured into the corresponding area within the metal outline and then ground down and polished several times until a glittering, smooth surface has been achieved.
The impervious and hard wearing nature of resin terrazzo means that it will retain its strong visual properties even after years of use and wear. The Moody Lagoon’s managers could rest assured that the high heels, spilled wine, fallen food, frequent cleaning and all the challenges that floors in restaurant spaces will inevitably be exposed to won’t affect the new finish.
Mondéco Earth’s seamlessness is also a key cleanability advantage, as it means that anything dropped on the floor can be quickly and easily washed away before it can spoil the interior’s appearance. This combination of aesthetics and functionality has made Mondéco a popular choice among high-end leisure venues such as Benguela Cove, as it will meet the high standards of the clientele while providing an easy to maintain surface for the restaurant’s owners for an extended period of time.
