Project • By SoundtectHospitals

burleigh medical centre

A new build two storey primary care medical centre and integrated Pharmacy. The scheme was to create a space both inside and out that was contemporary and engaging for the service users. The client’s vision was to pay homage to Barnsley's historic mining community which is reflected in the choice of materials both inside and out. The heavily contrasting external materials of dark anthracite cladding with white sparkling block work are reflected back within the interiors. Bold geometric shapes are used throughout the scheme referencing shapes found in geologic materials. Hexagonal forms were used for the children’s built in feature seating and also within the Soundtect Freestyle acoustic panels which meant contemporary Artwork... More

Fluid - Acoustic parametric seating

   FLUID is a parametric bench created through the understanding of flowing organic volumes and the relation of elements which have been parametrised into simpler 2 dimensional components and then assembled to reveal a complex 3 dimensional form which would stand out as a gallery piece in its own right. Designed to entice conversation in any environment it inhabits with the intention of prompting interaction with its users not only as a bench but through a sensory exploration of its organic fluidity, the warmth of its material DNA and juxtaposition of individual elements. This holistic approach to design understanding is what makes this piece truly unique. More

Product • By GlasioGlasio a worldwide unique acoustic material

Unique acoustic Glas

INNOVATIE MATERIAL GLASIO slab is a porous material made of small crystal glass parts joined together by heat. The slabs are joined together by heat and don‘t contain any additives such as fillers and binders.   ACOUSTIC It is acoustic wall panelling with maximal sound absorption coefficient on medium frequency where its absorptive ability exceeds 90% of impact sound energy. These frequency bands (especially octave bands 500Hz and 1Hz) are the key factor for good intelligibility.   COLOURING A basic range of colours was chosen to use in modernor historical interiors in timeless shades typical of crystal glass. When necessary, the shades could be mixed and create new and unique combinations. It is recommended... More

Artesan collection of acoustic wall panels

We wanted to bring 3d, approachable forms to acoustic wall panels and create unique, really ecological family of acoustic products. The end result of the work is "Artesan" -collection of acoustic wall panels. Artesan collection is about shapes and textures where play of light and shadows will continuously generate new subtle tones. Forms that remind us in some form from even-changing qualities of nature&light in Skandinavia. Some might even say there is something sculptural in the Artesan -collection. It´s our interpretation what kind of visual qualities man might want to have from acoustic product´s. Artesan collection is about crafting 3d acoustic ideas and to to be presented boldly to make lasting impression both visually and acoustic... More
