Historical Charm, innovative Interior

An open-plan office featuring innovative Rossoacoustic acoustic panels has been installed in a former artillery workshop on the Hanomag factory site in Hanover.


Hi-Res   /   Lo-Res

Redbrick buildings, industrial charm and the spirit of days long past characterise the Hanomag factory site in Hanover, a notable example of German industrial architecture in the late 19th and early 20th century. Built in 1916, the former production halls are now mainly used by companies as office space. The new offices of the technology enterprise Rohde & Schwarz were set up in a former artillery workshop. BBU.PROJEKT ARCHITEKTEN from Hanover was charged with the task of transforming the open, spacious structure into a modern open-plan office, while maintaining its historical charm. Rossoacoustic PADs and panels were used to improve room acoustics.

Invisible yet highly effective

Optimisation of room acoustics was a major element in the redesign of the open-plan offices and cafeteria, which featured the inclusion of communication and quiet zones. "The reason why acoustic measurements are so important is that the effect of sound in a room is not visible. Solutions are often based on "gut instinct" and have either no effect at all or, in the worst case, have a negative impact on room acoustics," explains Gerd Sinz, an architect and project controller at Rossoacoustic. The new office for Rohde & Schwarz features partitions in the form of transparent honeycomb panels from the Rossoacoustic CP 30 system. These were used to acoustically separate groups of desks, communication zones and individual working areas from one another. Acoustic pads from the Rossoacoustic PAD product family absorb sound on the ceilings and walls, as do the coarsely textured lightweight wood wool panels under the ceiling.

Working in a relaxing Atmosphere

For this project, which was completed in 2017, BBU.PROJEKT ARCHITEKTEN decided to collaborate with Rossoacoustic because of the company's many years of in-depth expertise and, as the architects stressed, "due to the product's convincing mixture of acoustic effectiveness and transparent, lightweight aesthetics with an industrial touch". The very high quality of the products is complemented by exciting textures and colours. BBU.PROJEKT ARCHITEKTEN based the colour scheme for the innovative office design on the enterprise's corporate identity and added just a few clear shades of blue to create the occasional highlight. The result is modern, airy workplaces with a perfect acoustic effect and a pleasant surrounding atmosphere.
