Future-proof education in a sustainable building. In addition to the sleek design, the design has a sustainable character.
The new educational building for the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences is located at the Kralingse Zoom and takes advantage of ‘Het Nieuwe Studeren’. The building was designed by Paul de Ruiter Architects and accommodates the economic courses that were previously spread over different locations.
Linking a new sustainable education building to existing building parts at the Kralingse Zoom in Rotterdam. That was the challenge that Paul de Ruiter Architects stood for when the architect was asked to make a design for the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. The aim of this project was to achieve BREEAM-NL ‘Excellent’ , in which a healthy indoor climate and the choice of sustainable materials together with energy efficiency play an important role. Nora rubber floor coverings fit perfectly in this picture.
The new building of Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences has been built according to BREEAM-NL and the ‘Frisse Scholenconcept’, building with low-emission building materials.
The rubber floor covering at the University is 2 mm thick and requires no coating because of the closed surface, which is vulcanized. This makes maintenance much more economical and that saves our clients directly in operating costs. The project architect, Paul de Ruiter Architects, is enthusiastic about our product.

Rubber floor covering with a perfect combination of permanently resilient rubber and randomly dispersed granite chips. The fine scatter of chips in noraplan® unita lends it a discreet appearance. The design is deliberately purist and simple.
