Conceived as a HQE building (High Environmental Quality standards in France), the brand new hospital complex has been designed based on horizontal organizational schemes and favours a linear traffic flux. To assist the movements of personnel and patients, color has been used as a language designating respective areas in a linear manner and favouring the orientation in the building. In order to address both the ecological character of the building as well as the need for clear colour coding, Tarkett’s iQ Granit vinyl variety was chosen. With a 2mm wear layer iQ Granit is not only extremely resilient (indention resistance), but offer an excellent hygienic performance, is 100% recyclable and offers a large range of bright matching colours.
