Described as the “devoted home to Architecture”, the School of Architecture’s Keith Green Building is intended to “be used as a ‘living’ lab, rather than treating the building as a finished object”. Noppe stud tiles in the Limestone Green, Steel, Black Coal, Mercury, Cobalt and Cool Blue shades were fitted throughout classrooms and the computer suite which are used by undergraduate and post-graduate students on the university’s architecture courses.
Noppe stud flooring is a hard-wearing rubber tile with a low-profile studded surface for heavy commercial use, available in 12 colours with a 3.0 or 4.0mm gauge. Over 1000m² of this flooring in six different shades was installed by Lincoln-based construction and interior fit-out specialist, Acorn Partitions & Storage Systems (APSS).
A spokesperson for APSS commented: “We specified the Noppe stud tiles as we needed a high-performance flooring product that would add a touch of subtle colour and pattern to the interior design scheme. We’re delighted with the finished result, and we believe this will be an ideal teaching and learning environment for Loughborough’s students.”
