Iglu Kelvin Grove

Iglu Kelvin Grove

The Gibbon Group design team is committed to supporting designers through the creation of a brand’s visual language through a consultative service that is tailored to each and every project, large or small – across multiple sectors. Design solutions that speak to the individuality and innovation at the core of our clients’ brand identities. For the Iglu project at Kelvin Grove, the design team was called upon by Bates Smart to develop their unique flooring designs into a fully resolved custom flooring solution.


From the initial brief and supplied drawing, all of the individually measured cuts of tretford were carefully considered by the Brisbane design team with respect to reducing waste and aligning the inherent carpet cords. As much thought also went into how the final product was to be delivered, acclimatised and installed successfully.


Pattern, texture and colour provide an animated architecture that enriches its surroundings and expresses the vitality of student life.
