Edificio emergencias 112

SpainSpainCompany Name: Mas Espacio 2010. S.L.L.

Project description

The project represents the values of the emergency services workers: The secret of success is to insist, persist, resist and never give up. Without any doubt, the most challenging item about this project was the creation of the suspended ceiling “Flor de la esperanza”, a complex geometric design that represents the hope that all the workers and emergency services transmit to the society with their labor in a 280 sqm room. The project is divided into four floors and mix different uses. This complex program implies also high acoustic requirements, aesthetic challenges, and moisture resistance solutions for exterior ceilings like Aquaroc® board and Hydrostil metal profiles F-530 (Z275). Indoors, in the main open space, Rigitone® in combination with ISOVER mineral wool has been used in ceilings to improve the reverberation time and provide the correct acoustic control. Rigitone® 12/25 with black tissue was also used in ceilings and wall linings on the corridors of the fourth floor
