Aesthetics, acoustics and A-Grade performance

The project aimed to develop a contemporary office environment that reflects Gadens’ brand while accommodating future work trends. This involved creating a modern design that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. The office spaces were designed to support various work modes, encouraging flexibility and collaborative teamwork, meeting the demands of a dynamic and modern law firm.

The project required precise coordination with the architect and acoustic consultant to ensure that both aesthetic and performance goals were met. Maintaining the structural integrity and acoustic performance of the glass partitions was critical.

A transformative finish

The sophisticated design of Gadens’ office was enhanced by the use of the Interpon Sable Brilliance Grey textured finish, adding a refined touch to the overall aesthetic. The combination of various glazing solutions not only provided functionality but also contributed to the visual appeal of the space. Optima’s products ensured high acoustic performance and structural stability, creating a comfortable and efficient working environment. Additionally, the integration of sliding doors and flexible partition systems enabled dynamic space configurations, catering to various working styles and promoting collaboration among team members.
