Artworks were pleased to work with architects AWW to successfully develop their acoustics and graphics scheme both on time and within budget. The timeless interior scheme allowed us to bring in a rich mix of textures and play with the subtle grey tones from our ALTO range.
Custom ALTO rafts incorporated classic dome-shaped lampshades, which we carefully designed so as not to impede the airflow to the office. To achieve this, we worked closed with M&E to ensure a fully functioning system that both looked great and worked well. Feature glass drywipe boards and pinnable walls across the interior added flexible, usable space. Multiple artworks across the floors with a variety of finishes were key for this office environment, to add eye-catching elements with pops of colour.
Fabric walling system
The reception area features our NovaWall fabric walling system with clear brand signage. This then follows cleanly into the ceiling, in and around the integrated LED lighting. NovaWall versatile fabric rafts are suspended in the reception corridor and can actually be released to access the M&E above, which we thought was a clever design feature. Snug booths with diagonal acoustic walls add a subtle design feature with subdued noise levels.
Multi-discipline install teams reduced the time spent on site getting the range of finishes in place. The overall effect was a coherent scheme executed by our diligent team, that we know will stand the test of time.
This scheme made fantastic use of our acoustic range of materials. Subtle branding touches to our designs throughout the rooms created a good synergy with the rest of the interior. For example, cut-out acoustic divider screens suspended between areas incorporating the company brand added a playful design feature. It was great to see it come together and create clear zones and working areas, spiced up with pops of orange and yellow. Working with architects and clients both in Bristol was a treat, having our manufacturing facility so nearby.Dave Nowell, Director
