Seeking to create a contemporary and inspiring learning environment for a new school in Edinburgh, Allan Murrey Architects and HAA Design enlisted Forbo to supply the flooring for the state-of-the-art development . Forbo's design-led portfolio ticked all of the boxes to enhance and complement the schools' interior design, now and into the future.
Chris Walsh at Allan Murrey Architects explains "The objective of this project was to design a highly visual and dynamic space for Edinburgh Council's new "premier" school. We wanted to reflect modern day learning by incorporating high quality products that were both practical and durable. With this in mind, we specified a range of Forbo's flooring products across the school, including Marmoleum Piano throughout the main circulation areas, and a selection of finishes from the Step safety flooring collection in the laboratories, Home Economics classrooms and the creative arts rooms, as well as in the kitchens and serving areas due to the high slip and spillage risks in these areas."
The cutting edge design project has led Boroughmuir High School to win the EAA Building of the Year Award and the Large Project Award at the Edinburgh Architectural Association annual awards, as well as being short listed for the RIAS Awards 2018.
