Wellbeing on the agenda

The Electricité de Strasbourg group, an Alsatian energy company for 120 years, but now want to implement the trend of coworking with designing spaces for collaboration. Today, key factor as employees’ wellbeing, it’s essential to consider the layout of the workspaces early in the start of the project to give the best acoustic comfort. Following a call for tenders, the agency Richter Architects and Associates, Euro Sound Project (BE Acoustics and Audiovisual Engineering), and the company STAM Acoustique were selected to handle the renovation of these spaces where Rockfon Mono® Acoustic has been installed.

A project with both aesthetic and acoustic constraints

The renovation of the rooms had very precise specifications, where the Electricité de Strasbourg group wanted their employees to benefit from modern, user-friendly workspaces with a very high level of acoustic comfort.

“Good acoustics allows the employees to feel comfortable, but what is derives is much more important, as it gives better concentration and better productivity» says Daniel Wagner, Director of Digital, IT and Electricity infrastructure of Strasbourg. “Thanks to the sleek and monolithic Rockfon Mono® Acoustic® solution, the acoustics are very good and there is no excessive reverberation. Our employees enjoy working in these new rooms.”

The architect Anne-Laure Better from Richter Architects and Associates agency imagined workspaces and meeting rooms giving a serene and warm setting with large volumes, while working closely with Yves Kayser and his team of acoustic experts to ensure best acoustic comfort in every space. 

Anne-Laure Better continus; “The challenge was to transform the existing, obsolete and dark spaces into comfortable and bright environments with best acoustics and durable materials. The Rockfon Mono® Acoustic® contributes to a quiet and hushed space allowing the integration of many equipment including audiovisual while maintaining its smooth and matte appearance.”

The Rockfon Mono® Acoustic® was installed by STAM Acoustique in the two rooms on the top floor under the roofs. The unique layout of the facility made it difficult, but the multiple possibilities offered by Rockfon Mono® Acoustic® was utilised to adjust it and make it fit. 

“The installation of the Rockfon Mono Acoustic required that the joints would perfectly fit around each integration of equipment so that the fine projection offers the expected aesthetic rendering and that the acoustics is optimal”, explains Pierre-Alain Mendler of STAM Acoustique and MyRockfon French member as IAMA (Mono Acoustic Approved Installer).

The aesthetic dimension and high acoustic performance of the Rockfon Mono® Acoustic® were able to provide the desired solution while preserving an architectural design.
