Erato Street Cruise Terminal Complex

Manning Architects worked with the Port of New Orleans to complete interior flooring renovations to the existing Erato Street Cruise Terminal Complex located on the New Orleans Riverfront. The Port of New Orleans wanted to replace the existing flooring with a new flooring solution that would stand up to the high traffic volume the cruise terminal receives during disembarkation. The practical solution was to break up the space into high and low traffic zones. The rubber flooring used in the high traffic zones provided a durable flooring option that also prevented fatigue from standing passengers. Custom carpet tiles were used in areas that received less foot traffic. The end result was a beautiful space that blended in with the existing architecture and materials, as well as a space that was practical from a maintenance perspective.
