Sheppard Robson como Arquitetos de interiores

Monmouth Coffee Company was founded by Anita Le Roy in 1978. In the forty-plus years since then, the firm has grown slowly into a serious contender; sourcing, roasting and retailing coffee from sustainable growers and making their mark on the coffee scene. In 2017 they moved their headquarters to Spa Terminus, a converted series of railway arches in Bermondsey, London.


Architects Sheppard Robson were enlisted to help fit out the new space. Their interiors department, the award-winning ID:SR group, set about turning the venue into a roastery, shop and office.


Making the best out of a unique location

One challenge with this unique location was the acoustic nightmare created by the arches’ large, rounded surfaces. Hard floors and walls allow sound to reverberate, creating echoes and causing distraction and annoyance to occupants. Arches such as those at Spa Terminus also have specific acoustic qualities: sound waves are reflected from one side to the other, moving more slowly and causing a more pronounced echo effect (to test this, try shouting in an underpass).


Creating a sustainable workspace

To counteract these acoustic problems, ID:SR turned to BAUX. A large number of BAUX Acoustic Wood Wool Panels were installed across the walls of the venue, as well as in the office’s meeting rooms. The Diagonal pattern was selected in natural tones, lending a light and clean feel to the interior.


Challenge of an open-plan workspace

Research indicates that the single biggest and most common distraction in the workplace is noise. By implementing BAUX acoustic solutions, employee wellbeing and productivity is maximised, with distraction kept to a minimum.
