Arte S Chooses Artistic Flowcrete Flooring
Design to Mirror Architecture

Flowcrete supply flooring solutions for Arte S Penang’s iconic lobby and luxury PODs

Geometric shapes created in the floor design reflects the building’s distinctive architecture.

Flowcrete’s Flowtex PT, Flowshield SL 1000, Flowseal UV Satin and Deckshield UV Linemarker
were chosen for the project.
T
he luxurious residential complex Arte S required a decorative and eye-catching design
for its lobby and unique PODs that
reflected its distinguishing exterior
and called upon Flowcrete’s expertise to help.
Being the first of its kind to be built, Arte
S is set to change the skyline of Penang
with its architectural brilliance, comprising of 480 units of extravagance and
style. The complex includes a lifestyle
structure on the 35th floor, with an entertainment space for residents to entertain guests. The small POD in this area
also contains the world’s first ‘hanging’
Jacuzzi, which is sure to make a unique
and interesting talking point.
Climbing to 49 storeys, Arte S is the
tallest building on Penang island and
10
offers spectacular ocean views or jungle-covered mountain vistas to residents staying on its upper levels. Each
storey of the complex is different,
thanks to its ‘rotating fin geometry’, generating a wavy visual on the external
construction. With such remarkable
panoramic scenes and impressive feats
of architecture, the interior design needed to reflect the exterior and the idyllic
flooring solutions from Flowcrete were
chosen to accomplish this.

supplying high performance screed and
coating systems, Flowcrete has become a popular flooring partner for

With the aim of replacing reality with
fantasy, bright colours were chosen for
the lobby flooring to beautifully complement the lavish building design and the
colourful furniture. This was achieved
with 382 m2 of Flowtex PT, coated with
the self-smoothing epoxy resin Flowshield SL 1000 in Steel Grey and striking pink hues.

trowelled epoxy screed that is suitable
