Requirement

Lancashire-based sports flooring specialist TVS Sports Surfaces was chosen to work on a prestigious riverside project in the heart of London, covering the unused roof terrace of Temple tube station with colourful TVS Multisport tiles.

The art installation above Temple tube station was dreamt up by East End artist Lakwena Maciver. The colourful, kaleidoscope makeover covers 1400m2 of unused rooftop terrace, and also includes the phrase “Nothing can separate us” – words penned just before the pandemic, but which the artist feels now has special poignancy.

Products used

In total, TVS provided 18,000 individual TVS Multisport tiles, making full use of the product's colour palette range.

Outcome

“It has to be one of the most unusual and intricate projects the company has been involved with,” explained TVS Managing Director Paul Lafone, “but the end result has transformed a previously drab and almost hidden space that offers fantastic views over the River Thames to the South Bank, with Westminster to the west and The Shard to the east both visible.”

Testimonial

Claire Mander, Director and Curator of theCoLAB, an independent curatorial practice which helps to promote the appreciation of contemporary sculpture, said TVS had been extremely supportive of the complex and out-of-the-ordinary project. “They showed extensive knowledge of their excellent product and were a great pleasure to deal with, always enthusiastic, flexible, professional and hard working. The public love the look and feel of our technicolour floor”.
