Architect & Design Interviews #6 – Gordon Yeaman & UK Law Firm
All around the world, designers and architects are using the BAUX acoustic tiles and panels in exiting projects for exiting brands. In a series of newsletters we aim to introduce you to a selection of projects and the mindmasters behind designs of these acoustic artworks. We simply will call these newsletters Interviews #.
We’ve been talking to Gordon Yeaman at Keppie Design in Glasgow to hear how they’ve been using BAUX’s exclusive Plank series.
Tell us a bit about the project?
Shepherd and Wedderburn are one of Scotland’s leading law firms. They were looking to challenge the way they interact with clients so they asked Keppie to design their meeting rooms and collaboration spaces in order to give staff and clients greater opportunities to mingle and interact.
Why did you choose BAUX?
We discovered BAUX after seeing designs one of our suppliers had created in their showroom. We liked the shape, flexibility and the natural raw feel of the wood fibres.
How did the BAUX designs transform the space?
We chose BAUX Plank for this project because the natural textures broke down the formality of the meeting room and the acoustics were softer. The classic plank shape allowed us to create a herringbone configuration that unified all client meeting rooms, the main reception and staff relaxation areas.
“We wanted to create a feeling of space but maintain client confidentiality. We choose BAUX Plank because the natural fibres and subtle colour fluctuations provided an informal texture to breakdown the formality of meeting rooms.”
How have people reacted?
The client is delighted with the finished project, in particular the impact the new space has had on work practices and client experiences.
What would a dream BAUX project look like?
We’ve already considered BAUX for future projects- we love the flexibility, shape, colour configurations and acoustic properties. There are a number of environments this application would enhance. I’d love to use BAUX in a larger scale context where we can play around with the product’s potential.
