Fins are Creative to the Core

Open plan studio space designed for creativity

Global advertising agency, Bartle Bogle Hegarty London HQ has been redesigned to offer an inspiring and welcoming open plan studio space designed for creativity.

Visitors to the agency are directed to the triple height central studio which runs through the core of the building. Architects and designers Urban Salon wanted to give the area a warm, welcoming feel.

Heradesign Superfine acoustic Fins from Knauf AMF, fit the brief perfectly. The characteristic natural texture of wood wool lends itself perfectly to the design theme as Urban Salon Director, Alex Mowat explained:

“We designed specially formed V-shaped fins produced in a custom-made light-grey colour on one side and standard white on the other to complement the natural colours of the bamboo and textiles used elsewhere. The Fins provide solar shading and at the same time allow the daylight to enter the original glass roof. The fins and other acoustic materials help reduce reverberation times in a large open space where 400 people work together.”

The Heradesign Fins are practical and create a bold architectural statement. They are ideal for areas where a suspended ceiling is not viable but acoustic control is necessary.
