A variety of Armstrong Ceiling Solutions innovative systems, including its wood-effect metal baffles, have featured in a £3.9 million office refurbishment in Uxbridge, Middlesex.
Blake House, a three-storey office building, now include the bespoke metal baffles, in what has been their first usage in the UK.
Frequent Armstrong users BPR architects specified VP-500 vertical metal baffles with a US Walnut finish for the job.
BPR project architect Ross McMahon said: “We used Armstrong’s wood-effect metal baffles in the new lobby extension. They soften the acoustics in the lobby and the timber effect brings the outside environment of trees inside the building.
“They also matched the walnut finish with ‘real’ wood used in the interior such as the doors, reception desk and hand rails.
“We specify Armstrong because their product portfolio is comprehensive. We have used and trusted their products over many years and so unless they didn’t provide a particular product that a client requested we would be unlikely to look elsewhere.”
For this particular project, Ross added: “We have a long-standing relationship with Armstrong. The sales rep who visited us was very knowledgeable and we were impressed by him. The client likes the softening of the acoustics and is pleased with the aesthetic tying in with the real wood finishes.”
