Five Pancras square is one of the greenest buildings in London and is the first of its kind to be awarded a BREEAM Outstanding rating.
The 13-storey development combines four levels of office space, two swimming pools, a library, café and gym, with ten floors of council offices and has already won six awards from Professional Associations in the UK.
The Gyptone line 6 gave a uniformed aesthetic throughout the building as well as offering significant acoustic performance. High levels of sound absorption were required to create a comfortable environment that features large open spaces and other reflective surfaces.
Gyptone line 6 enabled the designer to achieve the acoustic performances whilst maintaining a high quality of finish and keeping the desired aesthetic.
