A Blend of Skyfold and Moveo Creates a Stylish and Versatile Solution
Circle Housing is an organisation that creates sustainable communities for everyone, striving to open doors and provide chances. Whether it’s for those in the communities that the company serves, or Circle Housing’s staff that service them, the company helps people fulfil their potential and live better, more independent lives.
Working with architects, Scott Brownrigg and contractors, ISG, Style was specified to create a flexible and stylish working environment to meet Circle Housing’s business needs and complement its modern interior design.
Until opening its office in London, Circle Housing had to rely on room hire for meetings in the City. An important criterion in configuring the new office was to ensure it could accommodate a number of meetings, of varying sizes, at any one time. By doing so, the organisation would save money by removing its reliance on external meeting facilities.
A combination of DORMA Moveo Glass and Skyfold Classic provided the optimum solution. Moveo Glass providing a feel of light and space, with 50dB acoustic integrity and solid doors for room access when the walls were in place. Skyfold, the highly innovative vertically rising, fully automatic, acoustic moveable wall provided 54dB acoustics with a writable white board finish so that the wall doubled up for notes, ideas and action points from meetings. Skyfold is housed discreetly in the ceiling cavity when not in use, therefore also maximising floor space.
“This is not only a very stylish, vibrant and modern office,” said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director, “it is also a very efficient use of money which will pay dividends in the long-term by ensuring that office space is put to maximum use for a multitude of activities.
“As exclusive UK partners to DORMA, Skyfold and SWG, Style has an extensive portfolio of moveable wall solutions which is why we can always find the best option. In this case, the combination of Moveo Glass and Skyfold worked brilliantly.”
