Elevate design and function by exploring surface materials by Soelberg that work together hand-in-hand.
When it comes to surfaces, we know materials and those materials will transform your interiors.
For this modern office, GSBS wanted to create a welcoming space for employees to return to work post COVID closures. Upon entry from the elevator, employees are welcomed by a bold branded lobby wall with bright white touchable texture. Finished in 3D laminate, cleanability is key in our modern world. Because the lobby is large and central for traffic in and out of the office, GSBS also wanted to address noise while still focusing on aesthetic. Our Plywood baffles are the perfect combination of materials with the warmth of plywood and the soft textural performance of sound absorbing PET felt. With the option to choose from various profiles, they continued sound performance in their congregation area on the lower floor with MUTO Pinna PLY baffles. Notably a work of art in the ceiling, MUTO PLY baffles create ceiling statements.
Get to know GSBS: ‘The best architecture is born out of a clear understanding of the people for whom it is built – their origins, values, purpose, location, and aspirations. The goal of great architecture should be to transform our surroundings while being good stewards of the environment. A sense of place and a sense of purpose is basic to the outcome.
A unique perspective comes from 39 years of integrating disciplines under one umbrella. It gives us insight and translates to vibrant sustainable design. We bring together urban planners, landscape architects, interior designers, graphic artists, sustainability specialists and economic analysts on every architectural team for an integrated approach to design.’
‘Long before it was fashionable and long before LEED®, GSBS was incorporating sustainable design components like daylighting, high-performance building systems and energy efficiency—resulting in efficient designs with minimal maintenance. We think that’s wise stewardship of our client’s resources and the natural resources we share with the rest of the planet.
Transform through sustainable design excellence.’ GSBS Architects
