When the world’s biggest soft drinks producer needed a new headquarters in the heart of Brussels, the team aimed to create something special: a modern, cutting edge yet elegant design that would be as iconic as the brand.
An Open, Clean and Elegant Space
Aurubis is the world’s largest copper recycler, working in every industry from chemicals, electrical engineering and electronics to renewable energy, construction and the automotive industry. In expanding its flagship plant in Olen, Belgium, the company sought to create a new office building – an open, clean and elegant space providing a contrast with the heavy industry of its plant.
Using 1,465m² of METAL Tegular 2, Microperforated with a Premium OP19 acoustic infill, the team took advantage of the office building’s large windows, with high-reflectance tiles making greater use of natural light levels throughout the facility.
Another advantage of this choice of system was its exceptional sound absorption. In an area where people needed space, peace and quiet to focus on their work, the ceiling solution provided great acoustic comfort to match the high levels of daylight – helping Aurubis achieve its vision of a clean, open space for greater wellbeing and productivity.
