For a new £12.4 million secondary teaching block in South Wales, this 19-month project needed to realise an institution fit for the 21st century – as well as meeting BREEAM “Excellent” and BIM Level 2 standards.

Taking Inspiration From the Sky
In designing the General Aviation Terminal at Zagreb Airport, the architect took inspiration from the sky, requesting a ceiling that brought the space closer to the passenger experience in the air. This was a perfect chance to introduce an element of creativity to a space that pushed simplicity and functionality.
By using custom MESH Sonic Element MT and MINERAL Sonic Element canopies in uniform hexagons, Knauf Ceiling Solutions designed a ceiling that formed an abstract representation of clouds. Combining different textures with varying shades of blue and grey, and by setting the canopies at altering levels, the ceiling had plenty of depth to emulate flying through the clouds, giving this terminal a distinctive identity.
