Acoustic panelling from Troldtekt creates striking effect at 6 Embassy Gardens

  • 5 Jul 2024

Common Ground Workshop, recently named as one of the 16 emerging architectural practices in Landsec’s new retail framework, has completed a new hospitality development at 6 Embassy Gardens in Nine Elms, London. The project forms part of a wider urban realm masterplan comprising 5,000 square metres of commercial and retail spaces for client Ballymore.

Adjacent to the American Embassy, 6 Embassy Gardens includes a restaurant, bar and events space that blends hard and soft landscaping into a material palette filled with tactile and textured surfaces set against harder more industrial finishes and reminiscent of the burgeoning infrastructure landscape at Nine Elms.

Troldtekt wood wool acoustic panelling with a black finish was specified throughout the space, punctuated by a bespoke lighting track with drop-down custom-made LED light battens further emphasising the urban and industrial aesthetic look. Troldtekt panels were specified for their excellent acoustic properties and ability to dramatically reduce sound reverberation as well as their superior environmental credentials.

Troldtekt acoustic panels are available in a variety of different structures and colours, combining superior sound absorption with an award-winning design. The Troldtekt range has a minimum expected life cycle of 50 years coupled with excellent resistance to humidity and tested to meet ball impact standards. The range is available in various sizes and structures, from extreme fine to fine. They can be supplied as natural wood or finished in almost any RAL or NCS colour.

Depending on the panel specified, reaction to fire is classed in accordance with EN 13501 as B-s1,d0 or A2-s1,d0 respectively. Cradle to Cradle Certified® at Gold level, Troldtekt wood wool acoustic panels are manufactured using wood from certified forests (PEFC and FSC®C115450) and can contribute positively to a building’s BREEAM, WELL or LEED points.
