Icebreaker’s internal fit-out shapes up
Australia’s new icebreaker RSV Nuyina is looking more like a home away from home for scientists, expeditioners and crew, as the internal fit-out takes shape.
The mess and galley (dining/kitchen), cabins, gym, conference room/movie theatre, lounge, library and laundries are almost complete, as are the science facilities, including a science office, adjoining meeting rooms and a science operations room.
The interior design was undertaken by Damen in conjunction with its specialist sub-contractor, Maritime Interiors, and reflects contemporary builds by Damen.
Some interesting selections include the petrol (green) and mustard leather seats and sofas in the primary lounge space. Flooring selections include a grey patterned carpet throughout the recreational spaces, timber-look vinyl flooring in the mess, and studded rubber flooring in heavy traffic and working spaces.
