Story Detail:
As part of its radical rebranding, South Thames College built a £70 million state-of-the-art learning facility for its Wandsworth campus.

Why Interface:
When it came to selecting the flooring, the interior designer on the project, Manong Lewis, turned to Interface for a colourful and sustainable solution.

The college had planned for each storey to be differentiated by a distinct colour in line with its new identity and this played a key role in selecting the accent shades for the floor tiles. With its diverse range of innovative and colourful modular flooring that delivers sustainability as standard, Interface was the natural choice of flooring partner to complete the design.

“The internal design of the building needed to reflect the college’s corporate colours, which include orange, lime and blue,” explained Manong. “I chose to work with Interface because, as well as offering the balance of high design and durability we required, the products were available in the exact shades we needed.”

The Challenge:
To create an encouraging and inspirational learning environment, the college required a modern and vibrant interior. It
was also crucial to opt for an easy-maintenance flooring solution which would be durable and long lasting under heavy traffic.

The Approach:
The company supplied carpet tiles for the communal areas, as well as all the teaching rooms on each floor, covering a total of 6,000 square metres.

The Solution:
Manong selected two products from Interface’s extensive environmentally responsible collection — Chenille Warp and Transformation — to achieve the desired effect.

The Result:
Manong concluded: “Prior to this project, I hadn’t used products from Interface but I certainly will in the future; its carpet tiles are flexible enough to use across myriad sectors. The company has a fantastic range and this really helped us to achieve the stylish and modern finish we wanted for South Thames College.”
