One of our partner recently converted 5000 m2 of extension to the head office of a bank, in France. For this project, which involved fitting out several different workspaces and a restaurant, the company and the main contractor opted for solutions renowned for how they handle sound: myO acoustic panels, which are very visually appearing and remarkably effective. and the H7 partition, which combines acoustic performance and total modularity.
Bank head office acoustic correction
In order to bring all 550 employees at the head office together onto a single site, the client recently extended its offices in Orvault. Two new buildings were constructed, covering a total area of 5000 m2. The two structures were designed to house an auditorium, individual workspaces, meeting rooms and the company restaurant acoustic correction. The company itself is in constant motion, and has numerous projects on the go. They wanted the internal spaces to be fully modulable and that priority be given to collaborative working platforms.
For the banking sector, famed for its discreet ambience, acoustic correction was of course essential, in the interests of both confidential communication and the comfort of the employees, whether in the office or in the restaurant.
“PROJECT FOCUS: Company restaurant acoustic correction
In the restaurant, the same hushed ambience prevails: in this completely glazed space looking out over an enormous landscaped park, Lugn acoustic panels mark out small lounges where guests can eat in peace. “Here, with the sound bouncing off the windows, the room was at risk of descending into a complete cacophony.
We therefore drew up a schematic of the layout in order to position the Lugn acoustic panels judiciously. Now, regardless of where the sound is generated, it will automatically be absorbed by an acoustic panel before reaching any glazed surface, which significantly reduces ambient noise.“ “It’s fantastic – our employees are really comfortable here. Even more so in light of the fact that we chose personalised acoustic panels printed with photographs taken by the employees. This has turned them into veritable acoustic boards that are highly appreciated by our employees. This whole project is the proof that you can create a thing of beauty even on a shoestring budget!”
Feedback from the distributor and installer
For the restaurant, which seats 190, we had to provide a result that would offer good acoustic comfort and reduce resonance level. myOpenspace acoustic panels were the perfect solution for this company restaurant acoustic correction.
The Lugn suspended acoustic panel model acts as a visually appealing barrier, with its two fabric-coated faces. The Quieto acoustic board acts as a decorate and personalised picture frame. We thus ordered around fifty different sizes and colours of them. In harmony with the company’s colours, we positioned them in accordance with a plan provided by the acoustician. The result is really very satisfying.“
