The office district in the northwest of Paris is one of Europe's biggest and most important business districts. Some 800 banks and insurance companies alone have their headquarters here. In the heart a vibrant, busy district, the Tour Europlaza, a 440 foot high office tower, sets standards for sustainable building. It is the third building in France to receive the HQE Exploitation and BREEAM certification, which it has now received twice. The SILENTMESH acoustic systems from GKD have helped in this respect. As acoustically effective room dividers and decorative wall coverings, the CMP metal mesh systems provide highly effective sound absorption and bring the proverbial calm into the large entrance hall. Coupled with a very attractive appearance, they contribute significantly to the high quality of stay in this central entranceway.
The Tonhalle Düsseldorf was originally constructed as a planetarium, the Rheinhalle, by German architect Wilhelm Kreis. Converted into a concert hall in the 1970s, the dome structure lacked the proper acoustic needs for a concert venue. In order to provide a more “modern feel” and acoustic renovations, Hentrich-Petschnigg & Partner (HPP) Architects utilized GKD metal mesh for the hall’s interior.
State-of-the-art ceiling systems meet the demands of modern interior architecture. As a key component of room design, their form, function and material make a significant contribution to the well-being and comfort of those using the room. A ceiling solution can be mounted quickly and without the need for structural modifications, regardless of the respective room layout. GKD, world market leader in the field of woven architectural and design metal fabric, offers innovative ceiling solutions made of stainless steel and aluminum mesh from a single source. They combine the extraordinary visual appearance of the woven texture with a high level of acoustic comfort and effective light deflection.
