New-look offices pioneer use of Armstrong’s bespoke metal baffles

Armstrong marked the first UK use of its wood-effect metal baffles in a prestigious £3.9 million office refurbishment.

Their VP-500 vertical metal baffles with a US Walnut finish were specified by BPR architects for Blake House (formerly Teal House), a three-storey office building on Cowley Business Park in Uxbridge. The 300mm-high metal baffles bring a contemporary linear aesthetic to a new lobby extension and refurbished main stairs alongside metal MicroLook tiles in the open-plan office areas, Armstrong’s new Drywall Grid System (DGS) for plasterboard ceilings in staircase areas, and Ultima+ Vector mineral tiles in the core areas.
