PKF Littlejohn, London

Aesthetics meets acoustics with crisp, white ReSound acoustic ceiling baffles.

Based in the financial centre of the capital, Canary Wharf, PKF Littlejohn provides a full range of financial services to large-scale clients in London and the South East.

Requiring a contemporary working environment, they turned to workplace design experts Maris to redesign their fifth-floor space. The plans called for ceiling space of nearly 210m2 to be covered with a mixture of ceiling baffles and rafts that, together, would create an entrance area that would be as pleasing on the eyes as it would on the ears.

With a clear proposal in mind, they approached us and asked if we’d be able to turn their plans into a reality. We said yes, of course.

All of the baffles were individually cut to a 150mm depth, with joins where necessary, painted white and installed in a sprawling chevron formation that spilled from the entrance hallway, through the reception and into the office’s wider breakout space.

Within that breakout space, we punctuated the series of baffles with several suspended rafts. Installed above key communal areas, with the contrast of raft and panel helping to draw people’s attention to the designated social zones comprising of lounge seating and high desks. The result is a truly spectacular space that highlights how acoustic
design can be used to create both an audial and visual statement.
