Wombats Hostel - Tower Hill
The Wombats is an Austrian brand of youth hostels with 600 bed spaces in the heart of London 5 minutes’ walk from Tower Bridge. The JD Interior Solutions team were brought in with only a few months to go before the soft opening in December 2014. We had to source 200 cubic feet of reclaimed Oak which the majority of it came from Tisseuil, a hamlet near Confolens in the Charante Region and La Bourgaud.
The reclaimed Oak had to be cleaned, de-nailed and sawn to rough size. It was then shipped to site where we trimmed, fixed, sanded and oiled it to make furniture pieces, table tops, bars and kitchen doors.
The job was worth £200,000 + and we had 3 consecutive additional orders following on after completing the first order because the client was so pleased with the level of our work.
