Located in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Metrolina Regional Scholar’s Academy opened its doors in September 2010 as a charter school for highly gifted children. Previously a call center, the vacant building was purchased by the Academy for its central location. In this new location, they desired a sustainable story, easy maintenance and creative coloring to increase the organization of the school’s layout.
The 3.600 m2 of Johnsonite flooring products selected for this project simultaneously created a cohesive aesthetic color palette throughout the building, yet varied in texture. The concept integrated Johnsonite’s Mesto, Hammered and Circulinity rubber tiles as well as stair treads into one seemingly continuous floor design. The result is a bright, coordinated facility with an overall inclusive feeling.
