"The engineered Caribbean Walnut flooring from Architectural Systems, Inc. selected for the Aquavit Cafe, Lounge and Bar areas lends an exotic, luxurious tone to the minimalist environment and is ideal for these high- traffic areas of the restaurant. We looked at more than 30 wood samples before selecting ASI Wood Flooring for its quality, ease of installation and maintenance. The flooring material fulfilled the design intent we shared with the owner and chef of Aquavit, linking the cuisine of Scandinavia with contemporary Scandinavian design. Additionally, though the flooring is for a commercial application, the space requires the intimacy of a residential interior."
