Following extensive feasibility evaluations with Rulon International, the panel grille system was redesigned to maintain consistent spacing between vertical blades, planned out to incorporate a set of interchangeable modules, and manufactured as a veneered system to achieve the highest level of consistency. In addition to the coordination between layers, adjacent panels also required consideration as the face of each vertical blade was machined to a specific profile that, when placed next to consecutive modules, created the visual of sound waves moving throughout the space.
Upper-tier panels were manufactured at 10 feet tall and extend proud of the lower tier portion of the wall system at only 8 feet tall. An inverted light cove was included between the systems to create a visual break and provide ambient light for the occupied space. In total, the 15,000 square foot system consists of 40 unique modules (including 20 left-hand and 20 right-hand modules for opposing walls) that were designed by Rulon International to simplify both the layout and the installation process.
