Carpet & Partitions
This refurbishment of a 1970s building with an unusual layout consisting of connected hexagons with perimeter offices and central communal areas. The architects selected Shaw Contract Rewoven & Light Series carpet tiles for their richness of colours, materials and textures. This provided a clarity of circulation to connect people in all areas of the building.
Optima Revolution 97 double glazed partition systems were specified throughout with both toughened and acoustic glass. A combination of timber and glass doors were used for the cellular spaces and these featured threshold seals to enhance the acoustic performance. The original building’s construction method and layout resulted in W2W installers having to compensate for uneven floors and irregular shapes to achieve a high quality finish.
