Heimstaden is one of Europes’s leading residential real estate companies. Founded in Sweden, Heimstaden develops and manages sustainable, modern homes. These buildings should enhance their customers’ lives – a concept Heimstaden calls Friendly Homes.
Properties in Germany are managed from Heimstaden’s office in central Berlin. The interior was designed by UP.GREAT featuring detailing that draws on a Scandinavian design aesthetic.
The entrance to Heimstaden Berlin is spacious and welcoming with natural light, clean lines, and simple minimalist design. BAUX Acoustic Pulp has been used behind the main desk and the natural tones and texture of the tiles complement the orange accent of the Heimstaden logo. The space is modern and welcoming.
Heimstaden, Berlin, has sixty workspaces and fifteen co-working spaces for meetings between customers and employees. In any space that has lots of human interaction, good acoustics really make the difference. BAUX Acoustic Pulp has ben used extensively throughout the interior space to reduce noise reflections from walls, glass, and ceilings. The result is a calm, focused workspace.
BAUX Acoustic Pulp
Nearly all of the meeting rooms feature BAUX Acoustic Pulp designs. The design team have used a combination of all three origami patterns to create subtle textures that ripple throughout the space. For the client, working with sustainable acoustic materials that create a beautiful aesthetic was an important part of the design process. BAUX Acoustic Pulp is made exclusively from sustainably source bio-based materials and it’s very effective at reducing noise reflections in the human voice ranging, making it a great choice for offices or meeting rooms.
You might be wondering how we create the natural colour variations in BAUX Acoustic Pulp tiles? By mixing a 5% ratio of wheat bran, we are able to create the subtle texture and colour variations that make BAUX Acoustic Pulp such a beautifully natural material to interact with.
