Flooring in education - Nora

WHEN Notting Hill Preparatory School in London needed to expand it brought about a special challenge – the new school building needed to be built underneath a motorway.

Hanson Architects were chosen to deliver this unique building and were able to design and build an acoustically separated structure below the concrete frame of Westway. The building houses the schools dining hall, kitchen, music, art, gym and administration departments. The inlay design creates a modern look in keeping the other school sites.

nora floorcoverings were chosen for their ‘resilience, durability, comfort underfoot and sound absorbing properties’.

Says the company: ‘Manufactured for easy maintenance and cleaning, nora floors look as good as new for years even after intensive usage with no coatings required. 

‘Owing to the inspired design of Hanson Architects and the excellent quality of nora floorings the new school building is one of inspiration and creativity and has been recognised as such by the AJ Retrofit Awards 2018.’
