Simple abstraction and minimalist detailing define the uplifting Jinan Changzhuang Church

Simple and minimal, the church space of the Jinan Changzhuang Church by Archipoetry Studio is abstracted into a basic building block. With limited decoration, structural design was carefully considered from the outset with the architect controlling the column spacing and column cross-sections to ensure the main hall presents a classical, symmetrical and rhythmic spatial atmosphere.  Jianbo Ke In the main façade of the building, U-shaped glass with vertical lines is used, combined with the cross shape of the steel structure. The simple design move results in a visually upward feeling force.  Jianbo Ke The exterior of the building is a dark colour, to ensure durability and integration in the surrounding environmen...

SilentPET | acoustic design panels

Each space is different. Large glass surfaces, hard floors, open spaces, or high light clearance. The composition of the construction, carpet, or furnishings usually improves the acoustic conditions in the room, but only by using acoustic panels can you achieve the correct acoustic conditions. Choosing the correct shapes and location plays a role in the final effect of fine-tuning both the room and its users acoustically.   ACOUSTICS FROM PET BOTTLESWe think ecologically and we care about sustainability. That's why we came up with the idea of how to produce acoustic panels from PET bottles. PET bottles are processed into fibers in the manufacturing process to form a final blend of material.

OPUS Business Park Helsinki – A Unique Acoustic Space

Commissioned to design the reception areas for the newly renovated OPUS Business Park in Helsinki, interior designers Niina Sihto and Emma Keränen converted an empty, grey tiled space into a warm, welcoming reception hall. They eliminated sound reflections from tiled floors and huge glass windows by installing a number of BAUX designs. The texture of the wood-wool tiles contrasted the hard surfaces and helped to soft the space. The colours have also had a huge impact. The client wanted a warm feeling on entering the building, so Nina and Emma chose soft reds that complemented the client’s brand identify. The inspiration for the designs came from our BAUX design tool and sample images on the BAUX website. The construction process was quic... More
