A Hunter Douglas Architectural ceiling system that combines an attractive finish with superior acoustic comfort has been installed at a landmark London office and residential development.
Southbank Place, a joint project between Qatari Diar and Canary Wharf Group, is one of the capital’s most high profile developments and will comprise more than 800 new homes, 48,000 sq ft of shops, restaurants and bars, and 530,000 sq ft of office space when completed.
Hunter Douglas Architectural supplied 620m2 of Topline, a wood panel system, for the main foyer of Two Southbank, a 407,008 sq ft, 15-storey office building. The TLS 13/3 ceiling system comprises a core of MDF engineered solid wood (ESW) with a decorative finish of high quality real European oak veneer. A small oval opening is achieved through a staggered single groove pattern while the other side has a perforation design that enables sound energy to pass through, helping to achieve superior acoustic absorption.
It also supplied 128mm x 2730mm panels with 50mm Rockwool and 0.2mm Soundtex acoustic insulation, which results in 0.75 NRC.
