Inspirational acoustics for motivational office design


The company is recognised for its award-winning corporate culture and its new office interior reflects this ethos with facilities designed to generate a collaborative and vibrant workplace. Heradesign ceiling rafts and baffles from Knauf AMF make a positive contribution to this vision by creating a healthy acoustic environment. Michael Laird Architects designed the


A


four-storey office which has a variety of highly functional, flexible, inspirational spaces and workplace settings to support creative thinking. Heradesign with its organic wood-wool woven surface fits seamlessly into this contemporary interior, helping to create a motivational place to work. In the large open-plan office spaces, Heradesign ceiling rafts are fixed directly to the soffit, sitting above the exposed services. The light grey colour of Heradesign matches the chrome of


the ducts and pipes, creating an eye-catching ceiling design. Open plan areas can generate intrusive


noise. Research shows poor acoustics can harm productivity and staff morale. The Class A sound absorption of Heradesign helps improve staff wellbeing by effectively reducing all unwanted background noise ensuring staff can concentrate, and that meetings in the pods surrounding the open office spaces remain private.


Changing places for invisible disability


Have you ever needed to ‘go’ when away from home, and not been able to easily find a toilet? Add to that feeling the fact that you need more space, or special equipment, or that you’ve had an accident because of continence problems. Building designers and operators are being urged to “hold that thought” when creating interior spaces. Up to 6 million people in the UK are affected by continence issues, according to latest figures from the NHS. For many, conventional ‘away from home’ toilets are still not suitable: they need more space, and/or equipment – a Changing Places toilet. Under current Building Regulations and British Standards, a Changing Places should be provided in any facilities to which numbers of the public have access, and/or spend a length of time. It should be in addition to any wheelchair-accessible toilets, and, as a minimum, be 12m2


with a ceiling track hoist, peninsular toilet and adult-sized height adjustable changing bed. The Toilets- Provision & Accessibility Bill currently going through Parliament will, if enacted, upgrade that to a compulsory requirement. Visit the Closomat website for more information.

Employees at the Foyer Assurance offices in Leudelange Luxemborg are delighted with their recently refurbished staff cafeteria. The new ceiling features two natural material finishes in veneered wood and Hunter Douglas Architectural’s exciting new HeartFelt®


modular felt


ceiling system. The veneered wood grill panels in oak, offer a directional flow away from the serving and preparation areas and act as a distinguishing feature against the HeartFelt®


panels in black that


were installed over the seated areas. 01604 648229 www.hunterdouglas.co.uk

leading global manufacturer of innovative audio technology has opened a new UK HQ in Edinburgh.


Heradesign ceiling baffles, fitted in three


colours and sizes, create a striking design feature in the stairwells, circulation areas, games room and break-out spaces. Sound control is key to making these places work. Optimum acoustic performance is achieved by varying the distances between the rows of baffles. The baffles ensure any noise from people travelling up and down the stairs or along the corridors does not disturb those using the adjoining open areas for meetings. Heradesign is a versatile product, its


surface can be matched to any colour, enabling it to enhance any design aesthetic. It is available in a wide selection of shapes, face patterns, edge details and sizes, and can be fixed to walls or suspended as ceilings, baffles and rafts. Manufactured from robust sustainable materials, Heradesign offers high impact resistance and superior fire resistance, which is paramount for any building.
