Twelve years after its commissioning, the Anthos building has been renovated by architects Naux & Poux to bring it up to date with modern workspace trends. The brief was to allow for denser occupation of the premises by a greater number of users, to integrate all services and systems and give the place a contemporary look and feel, while ensuring continuous, uniform acoustic comfort throughout.
The old, closed ceilings were removed to reveal all the MEP networks. To ensure acoustic comfort, the architects chose the solution of Stereo baffles suspended every 45 centimetres and strategically positioned in relation to the openings in the surrounding walls. This enables spaces to be redefined at will, inside each unit. The baffles also contribute a decorative effect and provide a sense of atmosphere. “The fabric adds lots of warmth to the concrete ceiling and lends a feeling of continuity to the volume, which can still be partitioned without difficulty, if it is required”, the architects explain. In the lift lobbies and the Atelier canteen area, Strato ceilings take over the noise control role. In this project, flexibility was identified as a long-term characteristic on the scale of the complete building.
