Edinburgh firm’s moveable
walls create stylish flexible space
Rathbones is a FTSE250 company providing individual investment and wealth management services for private clients, charities, trustees and professional partners.
Trusted for generations to manage and preserve its clients’ wealth, its tradition of investing and acting responsibly has been with the firm from the beginning and continues to lead it forward.
At Rathbone’s offices in Edinburgh, Style worked with architects, Form Design Consultants, and contractor, AKP Scotland, to create flexible space in the main Boardroom.
By installing a Dorma Huppe Variflex ML100 semi-automatic moveable wall, the room can either remain as one large Boardroom, or be easily divided into two separate meeting rooms.
A second Variflex gives the further option of creating a breakout area; the final solution offering the ability for one large conferencing suite, a boardroom plus breakout area, or 2 meeting rooms with breakout.
Finished in a stylish Kvadrat / Dark Walnut Laminate finish, and boasting an incredible 60dB acoustic rating, delegates can enjoy meetings and events in complete privacy when the walls are in place, with the semi-automatic operation ensuring that the acoustic seals are applied to the right pressure each time.
“This is an absolutely stunning installation,” said David Louden, Style’s director for Scotland, “and it’s a credit to Form Design and also to AKP Scotland who have been a pleasure to work with.
“They have done a great job in delivering the designer’s vision for their client, and we were very privileged to be part of such a high quality project.
“Our final moveable wall installation not only works effortlessly with the interior design of the room, but gives Rathbones the degree of flexibility they need to use the area to best effect depending on the meetings and events taking place each day.”
