Spread over four levels, the Melbourne Administrative Appeals Tribunal’s new office finishes needed something special – contributing to flow as well as acoustic design. Luckily, Screenwood had the answer.
August 1st, 2018
The relocation of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal’s (AAT) office prompted a great opportunity for redesign. Consisting of a series of individual offices, breakout spaces and close to 400 workstations though, the job was going to require some serious design consideration, especially when it came to acoustic design. Which is why Screenwood was the obvious choice.
It was Screenwood’s series of American White Oak panels the architecture team at Colliers International specified for the largest part of the design, helping to contribute to the flow of the space. And with SC15 acoustic backing, the panels assist with echo reduction and acoustic comfort in shared spaces.
Addressing poor acoustics in a space can be challenging when many popular treatments include trendy panels that can date quickly, or alternatives that blend into their surroundings without contributing to a room’s aesthetic.
With Screenwood panels there’s no need to opt for function over form. Acoustically rated ceiling and wall panels are available in a range of PEFC certified timber species to add the warmth and timeless appeal to any space. With the inclusion of fine-tuned acoustic backings which ‘disappear’ behind the timber slats, the space benefits from maximum sound absorption.
With a range of timbers and coatings to choose from, Screenwood is ideal for new and existing fitouts. Designed for ease of installation, Screenwood is supplied prefinished, assembled and cut to perfection.
