Drawing inspiration from the Capital & Coast District Health Board’s corporate colours, Level 10 of the Clinical Services Building at Wellington Hospital is an exceptional example of how flooring can play a significant role in the feeling of connection within workspaces.
Utilising the best of two flooring brands supplied by Inzide, the floor design for level 10 makes a statement while maintaining flexibility for future configurations and keeping maintenance costs low. Both Interface and Forbo offer 15-year product warranties and their flooring options have high stain resistant qualities making them ideal for high traffic areas.
Sphera homogeneous vinyl by Forbo was used for the kitchen space and offered the desired colour parings needed to tie-in perfectly with the bold colours of the striking Aerial Flying Colours carpet tile collection by Interface. The bands of colour dart throughout the space – livening up the floor plate, encouraging movement and connection through the space.
For future-proofing it was essential to have a floor that wouldn’t define the usable spaces and confine their use, rather opening up the floor to a larger, bold use of colour in bands to connect different areas no matter how they may be used/ divided in the future. The angled accent strips through the floor also reflect the coloured strips present on the manifestation applied to the office glass fronts giving an overall appearance and feel that is very much CCDHB.
Sustainability was also a consideration for this project, the Interface carpet tile used in this project is carbon neutral and closed loop recyclable.
Check out the carbon saved by specifying Interface carpet tile…13 tonnes! That’s the equivalent of 52,568km travel by a standard petrol-powered car – more than the circumference of our world!
Congratulations Pelorus Architecture for having a positive impact on our world in this way and creating such an outstanding space for staff and the public alike who will enjoy this space for many, many years to come.
