We have worked on some interesting projects where the brief has been to create custom made shapes and designs that provide interesting and stylish acoustic wall solutions. The beauty of being site-built is that FabricWall solutions can be made into any shape on site. Using the clever manipulation of our track system which can be cut or curved, we’ve worked on a number of projects where our experienced designers have had to think outside of the box to make some unique design-led acoustic solutions.
Longbridge House Meeting Suite, Gatwick
The project brief at Longbridge House, part of the Gatwick Airport complex, was to create a Fabric Wall solution that would feature a system of shapes to give texture to what would normally be a seem-free acoustic wall. From brief, FabricWall worked to the architect’s plans to ensure that the wall would provide a feature in the meeting suite, rather than blend with the décor. The wall had to accommodate a wall-mounted TV in the middle. The result was a beautiful, textured feature wall with incredible sound absorption qualities.
Reckitt Benkiser Breakout Area, Slough
As part of a larger fit-out project by Overbury, FabricWall were contacted to install an acoustic wall solution for a breakout area at the Reckitt Benkiser head office. There were two pre-requisites to the solution: the first was that the acoustic wall solution had to match the existing fabric in the seating area in terms of colour and texture. The second was to create texture to the wall. FabricWall installed a diamond shaped detail into the FabricWall solution by cutting the track and then stretching Kvadrat Davina fabric in bright pink across each section until a complete wall was created. The final result was a bright and striking stretched fabric wall.
FabricWall were contacted in regard to creating a feature wall acoustic solution in one of Google’s meeting rooms. The brief on this project was to undertake the innovative use of inexpensive building materials whilst creating a look that complemented the industrial, unfinished appearance to the room. The meeting room already had a wall-to-wall panelling system made up of timber joists and OSB chipboard. The solution provided by FabricWall utilised the spaces between some of joists – filling the space with an acoustic foam and covering the area with beautiful Vescom Lani fabric. Used in conjunction with acoustic baffles, the final result was an eye-catching, unique look with great sound absorption.
It just goes to show that our FabricWall system really is flexible enough to work with any room type and, whatever the design brief, we can work with our clients to create creative and beautiful solutions. To speak to a member of the acoustic design team to find out more, please get in touch.
