Canary Wharf, London
Padium is the UK’s first premium padel club located in the heart of the thriving Canary Wharf in London. Designed by Orca Studios, it includes 8 world class padel courts, a Pro shop, Ace Bar, Mezzanine floor lounge and changing rooms.
Our Minerals and Essential ranges were used in the state-of-the-art changing rooms, equipped with premium amenities which add to the luxury aesthetic. Our Minerals Pebble Grip 600x600mm porcelain floor tiles are the perfect neutral shade with an elegant stone effect. The Grip finish provides the slip resistant qualities needed for these wet barefoot areas, providing both practicality and beauty. For the walls, our Essential Silver Natural 590x590mm porcelain tiles create a minimalist style, great for opening up the space for a modern and contemporary look.
Orca wanted to achieve an industrial and slick aesthetic for the project. The tiles went into both the male and female changing rooms, so they opted for a gender-neutral style. ‘The completed look is absolutely what we wanted; the finished space is incredibly close to the initial CGI’s. As always Rich [Baskerville] was super helpful and went above and beyond to cater for my needs.’ – Matthew from Orca Studios.
We are incredibly proud to be a part of this project, the club oozes sophistication and style with an all-round cool feel. Armed with the best facilities in the country, there is no doubt the venue will become increasingly popular with more and more people giving padel a try, purely to check Padium out!
