Henderson Global Investors is an international company that employs more than 1,000 members of staff worldwide. At TIAA Henderson Real Estate, flexibility was required for new meeting rooms on the 9th floor of its prestigious London offices with no better solution than the new soundproofed Skyfold.

Working with architects, Pringle Brandon Perkins & Will, and the contract managed in-house by Henderson TIAA’s own team, this was the first installation of the new Skyfold STC60 since its launch into the UK market, with 3 systems being used to sub-divide space.

Skyfold STC60 is a truly groundbreaking vertically rising, fully automatic, acoustic moveable wall. With a 59dB rating, it offers a level of soundproofing which is unrivalled by any other moveable wall solution of its type.

Operated by the push of a button, the wall glides effortlessly and quickly into place and, because it is housed in the ceiling cavity, it maximises floor space and is completely hidden when not in use.

Fred Kinahan of Henderson Global Investors commented: “We are delighted with the end product that Style has delivered. Their willingness and ability to adapt the Skyfold system to produce a solution, which maximises the functionality of our meeting and conferencing space in a clever and sophisticated way, has exceeded our original expectations”.

Project Architect David Halpenny commented: “Styles expertise and unique products enabled Pringle Brandon to develop the design concept of a fully flexible and innovative space into a practical reality”
