In Airbnb’s spirit of hospitality and comfort, the architects, Heneghan Peng designed a three-floor open-plan office. Connected through a central staircase/ atrium the office creates an informal and inviting environment. With the open-plan nature of the offices noise reduction would play a key role in maintaining productivity. We offered American white oak perforated with a series holes 40 mm in diameter, this covered black acoustic foam that was 50mm thick.
This was a brilliant project for Burke Joinery as we were able to showcase our range or abilities. Everything from skirting to bespoke furniture was accommodated for. 150 Integrated door sets were installed with various finishes, including high sheen paint, oak veneers and laminate facings. For open work areas we provided 37 bespoke oak locker units, these include adjustable shelves, automated table top and hanging rails.
For the IT department we offered a desk and work bench both in oak. 37 birch task tables each consisting of 2 sections with a total length of 4.9m along with 32 birch lounge tables, involving a steel base, a chamfered edge and a matt finish were made for the open work areas.
