Hunter College

We worked with New York City based architect Robert Kahn on the update of Hunter College’s Baker Theater Building. Bob specified a Walton linoleum design that maintains the original architectural style of the theater building, wears well and is an excellent environmental-friendly option.

Linoleum is made from natural, renewable materials like linseed oil, wood flour, jute, and pine resin. These components make linoleum biodegradable, non-toxic, and low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which is great for indoor air quality.

Additionally, linoleum production tends to have a lower environmental impact compared to some other flooring options. It requires fewer resources and energy for production, and it’s often manufactured using eco-conscious processes.

By opting for natural linoleum, they are preserving the historic charm of the theater building, and also contributing to a sustainable and eco-friendly environment.
