Longcross Court, Cardiff

Mellow polyester and ReSound acoustic ceiling rafts enhance acoustics, combined with static panels to divide open plan space.

In 2021 Paramount were appointed to undertake an extensive scope of internal office refurbishment works to the reception, toilets and vacant office suites on the 3rd and 4th floor at Longcross – a workspace for Cardiff city centre occupiers.

Creatif was approached by Paramount with a need for fixed panels that could help divide the open plan kitchen and breakout space, which features a variety of seating options. This was achieved by taking panels from our Float agile moving panel system set in position with subtle floor mounts and metal rods connected to the ceiling, which can be seen amongst the array of exposed fixings.

To help reduce excessive noise in this high-traffic area, which is amplified due to the abundance of reflective surfaces such as glass and concrete, an arrangement of acoustic ceiling baffles – crafted from our Mellow acoustic polyester material – were installed in one half of the room. By absorbing sound and trapping it between the vertically-suspended panels, a great level of acoustic comfort is achieved.

Two large horizontally-suspended ReSound acoustic ceiling rafts – at a size of 2,500mm x 1,200mm each – also work to soak up excessive reverberated sound on the opposite side of the room. These acoustic absorbers are wrapped in a black fabric to match the integrated strip lighting and Mellow baffles.
