Bericote Properties establishes these offices in London for a dual purpose: to provide an additional workplace for its employees, while having a stylish space in the centre of the buzzing city that offered a space for formal client meetings and social gatherings.
Designers Think Curious created the open plan flow of the space, separating social spaces and a large meeting room and office. This dual function meant that noise transfer between the break-out spaces and work spaces was going to be an issue, with partitioning not being an option as it would disrupt the open plan flow of the space.
To minimise noise disruption between the spaces while maintaining the minimalist, sleek design of the office, our Fabric Wall solution formed the majority of the absorption in the space. To minimise noise transfer between the two spaces, the wall separating the gathering space and work space was completely treated with our Fabric Wall panelling, with a subtle grey finish.
We aimed to mop up conversational noise from the office by treating the adjacent wall with the same solution, reducing the potential of noise spillover from the office to social space.
Additionally, the meeting room, comprised of hard and reverberant surfaces had two walls and its ceiling treated with a combination of Fabric Wall and Ecophon hanging rafts, eliminating a large surface area of reverberant materials.
Working alongside Think Curious, the result was the ideal modern office. An open, multifunctional space that facilitates work and socialising in the one space, with minimal noise disruption.
