The trend for a more simplistic and unassuming lifestyle is becoming more frequently reflected in our choices for the home and office. The growing recognition that we are refreshed and
re-energised when we are able to reach out to the natural world has led to designs which echo this need. The design of The Hub is simple, but solid. It is a modular system which allows total flexibility, and, in keeping with our ecological ethos, will stand the test of time. Its post and beam construction has eight major components: the frame, the acoustic panels, the base panels, the door, the glazing, the ceiling, the canopy and the fixings.
The acoustic tunnel on the ceiling of The Hub creates natural ventilation.
Clean ceiling lines mean that from above – should you ever be in that position! – it looks aesthetically pleasing.
Integral electrics give the added bonus of being able to use technology within The Hub.
Pendant lighting helps to create a more relaxed environment.
The most important factor determining the ability of a wall system to absorb transmitted sound is its mass per surface area. There is no such thing as an ultra – lightweight, high efficiency acoustic partition. The Hub has a very high mass per surface area which, to our knowledge, is higher than similar structures.
The Three Rs of Acoustic Hubs – Refresh, Renew, Reconfigure!
The Hub acoustic pod is for life not just the next financial period!
Refresh by repainting the birch ply panels, or re-oiling the wooden frame
Renew by replacing blinds or upholstery
Reconfigure by increasing or decreasing in size, or by adding perimeter
screening or seating
