Projects

For nearly 60 years, architects and designers have been specifying Jacobsen flooring, wall coverings and exterior cladding in New Zealand. From huge healthcare implementations to providing practical, hard-wearing products to small education facilities and from classic fit-outs to sourcing an eye-catching feature, Jacobsen has been involved in finding the right solution.

Wellington East Girls College

Wellington East Girls College

The new multi-level constructed for Wellington East Girls college is situated behind the original 1920s façade which was retained during construction. As an educational facility, it was imperative to choose products that contributed to a healthy, constructive learning environment while also being able to withstand incredibly high volumes of use. The school sought a ‘good green story’ when it came to the construction of this space therefore Desso and Regupol products were enlisted for their sustainable values as well as the variety of options meaning the needs of the space were met. Desso has a Cradle to Cradle methodology, which promotes a circular ecosystem where recycling takes precedence and Regupol are committed to creating sustainable products across the board making them attractive options for this project. A transformation of the outside façade was enabled due to Terracotta Cladding and the huge range of colour options helped designers transform the buildings exterior into something that looked inviting and fresh.

Church Of Christ, Manurewa, Auckland

Church Of Christ, Manurewa, Auckland

"The carpet tiles impressed me with the 1200 x 600 format and the blue flashes are reminiscent of car headlights flashing onto the surface. The blue is a restful colour suitable for the church surroundings - it worked with the pre-cast concrete colour and the upholstery chosen for the chairs. The effect on the floor is of a dynamic movement working with the flow of people through the entry toward the auditorium. A practical, easy to care for colour selection.

Te Uho O Te Nikau Primary School, Flat Bush. Ministry of Education's PPP3 Schools

Architect/Designer: ASC Architects


As part of the New Zealand Ministry of Education’s PPP3 Schools Project, ASC Architects were required to produce a Primary School design to be built on three separate sites, with the potential for the same design to be applied to future sites. 


Each school would cater for a roll capacity of 560 students ranging from ages 5-10. The design had to be flexible to be used across a range of individual site contexts and adaptable enough to be able to individually reflect the unique qualities of each school’s place, culture, and context. 


Innovative learning environments over two levels were designed to provide multiple educational methods to encourage and foster openness, collaboration, and connectivity in all aspects of school life.
