Superior functionality and durability
Underwoods wanted an interior design that would achieve superior functionality and outstanding customer experience. The showroom is fitted with full-height glazing so the ability for the ceiling to contribute toward controlling solar glare was an important requirement.
Mike Strain, MD of motor trade architectural consultants Scaramanga Design, emphasised the importance of colour and durability within the specification. "Having worked with Rockfon before, I had confidence their products would deliver. We worked with their team and chose Rockfon Color-all in the 'Concrete' surface colour as this dark tone helped control light reflecting off the polished cars, enabling customers to view the vehicles in their best light whilst creating the right mood."
Suspension grid in matching colour
The ceilings in Underwood’s showroom are fitted with an exposed Chicago Metallic® T24 Click 2890 grid in a matching Concrete colour to create an almost continuous appearance. Color-all ceiling tiles are available in exposed, semi-concealed or concealed edges in a large variety of dimensions giving architects and interior designers total design freedom.
Light and spacious offices
The offices in the dealership are fitted with Rockfon® Artic™ to give a light, spacious feel to these rooms. Rockfon Artic is an affordable range of 15mm thick, smooth, white tiles in semi-concealed and visible grid options. The smooth white surface is ideal for reflecting light back into the room, helping to reduce energy bills. The tiles are cost-effective and offer good functionality for a variety of areas requiring minimum Class C sound absorption.
