Promoting creativity and collaboration with Lanes™
Office spaces present unique challenges to designers. Often, the fit out must balance the restrictions of a pre-existing space with the practical needs of the individuals who work there. Designwell, a New Zealand-based design studio, recently sought out Autex Acoustics® to help meet these demands for their office upgrade.
Panama Square, the 1950s insurance building turned co-working space that Designwell calls home, necessitated interior solutions that inspired collaboration and creativity and highlighted and protected the building’s historic features.
However, being an open plan space, the Designwell office design had to negate the difficulties of creating a comfortable workspace without the inherent acoustic properties that walls can provide. To do so, Designwell turned to Autex Acoustics’ new high-performance air-gap acoustic system, Lanes™.
