Project of the Month: A Lesson in Sustainability

Central Piedmont Community College; Culinary Arts Building; Lecture Hall Kitchen; Charlotte, NC | Summer, 2009

Sleek with sophistication, the lecture hall kitchen in the newly constructed Culinary Arts Building in Charlotte, NC features Abaca, Burlap #8002.

“I love the look and dimension of the recycled banana fibers in the Abaca,” says designer Esa M. Weinreb, IIDA, LEED AP, sole proprietor of EMW Interiors & Environmental Solutions. “It has a unique quality and look matched by no other laminate.”

Completed in August of 2009, the hall’s kitchen counter front was designed to be eco-friendly, using Abaca as a backdrop to creatively contrast with modern, brushed metal panels.

“With every project I design, I try to educate my clients with the benefits of using eco-friendly materials such as the Laminart Abaca, recycled carpet backing in the carpet tiles, quartz countertops, and linoleum flooring tiles,” she says.
