Leading water distribution company Société des Eaux de Marseille is responsible for operating and maintaining the Canal de Marseille and its 250 structures. A striking and, rather fittingly, free-flowing ceiling solution was required for the company’s new meeting spaces as part of a redesign project at its Marseille headquarters, with equal consideration for aesthetics and acoustics required.
Lower Silesian Governor's Office
Boasting a Contemporary Appearance
As times change, so do historical buildings if they are to adapt to today’s demands. At the Lower Silesian Governor's Office, the existing courtyard was transformed into the main reception space for visitors. Creating balanced acoustics that didn’t detract from the beauty of the building, citizens needed privacy to communicate with officials – a tall order in a high roofed courtyard.
Boasting a contemporary appearance, MINERAL Baffle Element are linear panels that offer excellent sound absorption. This solution was the perfect way to combine modern aesthetics with the building’s rich heritage. The subsequent booths that were formed allowed customers to enjoy confidential appointments and benefit from optimal acoustic comfort.
