Vicaima’s innovative and stylish interior door models have been selected to compliment a new concept in housing from Crest Nicholson, at their Hygge Park development in Keynsham near Bristol, where the essence of Danish inspired design has been captured.

It may be hundreds of miles from its Nordic roots, but homes on Crest Nicholson’s Hygge Park site embody a touch of Danish design prospective.

Hygge, which means comfort, relaxing and wellbeing, in fact enjoying life’s simple pleasures; is evident throughout this development. Innovative interior house layouts create bright and airy spaces, where open plan living and the clever use of glazing is used to maximise light.

Contemporary design and designer fittings mark this development out as a new chapter for quality UK homes.

Blending seamlessly with this modern and light theme are the Vicaima doors chosen by Crest as the perfect opening between selected room spaces. In keeping with Crest’s forward approach to house design, they chose Vicaima Dekordor SD White Woodgrain interior doors.  These doors have hard waring faces and a bright white factory finished face; that displays a discrete, but visible woodgrain appearance.  To enhance the design even further, Crest selected a number of options from Vicaima’s extensive customisation offering.  These included the incorporation of two attractive satin inlays in a vertical pattern and, where additional light was required, a full-length glazed design.

Dekordor White Woodgrain is fast becoming the door of choice for modern housing schemes, offering as it does a twenty first century alternative to doors painted on site, with a durable and cost effective solution.  Ideal when supplied simply as a door or as part of a complete doorset system, Dekordor white woodgrain is available in various core constructions and a range of dimensional variations.

White Woodgrain is just one in a wide selection of foil-faced finishes from the extensively specified, Vicaima Dekordor SD range.  Popular for decades, Vicaima foils have recently been extended further, to include Visual Sensations.  This second- generation foil collection provides trend-setting ideas with a whole host of new tones ranging from Pale Sand to the dark hues of Forest and Mountain and all available in either a vertical or cross-directional woodgrain design.

As demonstrated in the choices made by Crest Nicholson, solid core interior doors from many of the Vicaima ranges can also be enhanced by including additional face embellishments, in the form of grooves and inlays.  These simple but effective add-ons elevate door design to another level and present a real opportunity to realise a specific vision or design mood for any given project.

Vicaima offer an extensive range of innovative design and performance options, with fire, acoustic and security solutions for luxury housing and modern apartment living.
