Acoustics and dynamic aesthetics with SUPAWOOD ceiling tiles
The Aurecon multi-level office fit-out in Perth's CBD highlights the practicability and aesthetics of Supawood’s SUPATILE 10 premium acoustic black ceiling tiles.
The designers, Hassell, needed a decorative, acoustic lining product that would also provide easy access to the ceiling. The product also needed to meet strict GBCA requirements as the project was targeted for a 5 Green Start rating. SUPATILE 10 ceiling tiles offered all this and more.
Occupying three floors, each level is fully open plan and interconnected via a central timber staircase set within an internal void. The staircase void creates a large open double height space which makes a highly absorptive ceiling material necessary to minimize internal noise levels from this high traffic area. Supatile 10 acoustic ceiling tiles are ideal for this as they use slots or holes which slope out away from the visible edge and are superior at absorbing sound from multiple directions.
The void of the stairs creates a physical connection to promote movement between the collaboration workspace on each level. The SUPATILE 10 ceiling tiles chosen are in the V-Breeze pattern in Supafinish Black which further accentuates this central area.
Easy accessibility into the ceiling was also an important consideration but it was paramount that this be achieved without jeopardizing the continuity of the ceiling finish. SUPATILE 10 fits neatly into the ceiling suspension system with only slimline joints visible.
In addition the Aurecon project was a targeted 5 Green Star rating project and the SUPATILE 10 ceiling tiles in SUPAFINISH fitted perfectly the criterial for low VOC and low formaldehyde materials required for the GBCA accreditation. In total 92m2 were used.
The Aurecon project demonstrates how SUPATILE 10 ceiling tiles can resolve a variety of rigorous requirements to suite the specifics of a precise design brief without risking the aesthetics of a dynamic contemporary look.
