ARMSTRONG FLOORS AND CEILINGS TEACH GEOGRAPHY TO STUDENTS

The new Midvale Elementary School in Midvale, Utah, goes beyond the basics of providing a comfortable environment for students and staff. The interior of the building was designed to teach.

The design concept, created by Salt Lake City firm NJRA Architects, depicts Utah’s unique land formations, including mountains, canyons, and caves.

VCT
NJRA chose Standard EXCELON Imperial Texture VCT , with its large color palette, to subtly illustrate a winding river cutting through the desert sandstone. Sweeping ribbons of browns, blues, and yellows help to visualize the earth’s strata as it becomes exposed to the elements over time.

Ceilings
Overhead, the blue Armstrong ceiling mirrors the flowing river on the floor. At the main entrance, Armstrong Infusions® Lay-in panels in the skylight represent the confluence of Utah’s mighty rivers.

Inspired by Nature
“Our inspiration was generated both by nature and by our desire to describe the character of our landscape to children using simple building elements,” said architect Hana Wright. “We chose Armstrong because of the color options available and the known quality of their VCT product.”
