Acoustic ceilings in the Atrium Building

Acoustic Ceilings in The Atrium Building

The Atrium Building, a stylish modern apartment building, had sustainability and improving residents quality of life at the heart of the project objectives. With a spacious open plan design in shared spaces they needed a solution to minimise sound reverberation and achieve a peaceful environment and promote quiet conversation. Quietstone light was selected for all the ceilings to absorb sound and reduce echoing. These acoustic panels were painted in white and can be seen on the video below.

About the Atrium Building

The Atrium Building was designed by Shepheard Epstein Hunter for Countryside’s East City Point development (ECP) in Canning Town. 

With views of the London Olympic Legacy Park and the City, The Atrium Building, which provides 92 private homes and 61 identical affordable homes within the same building, forms the focal point of the first phase of East City Point (ECP).  All homes are built to Lifetime Homes’ standards, while 10 percent are suitable for people with disabilities.

This award-winning development is contemporary in character, featuring a marked contrast between the masonry southern side with paisley patterned balconies and the elegant north-facing glass façade, glass balustrade walkways, bridges, and a central winter garden for the shared use of the residents.

Built adjacent to the A13, the building is well sound-proofed and protected from pollution by an innovative glazed wall.

Working in partnership with Newham Council and Affinity Sutton, Countryside has completed a total of 649 mixed-tenure homes at ECP, a new energy center, and invested £7.4m in delivering new buildings at Keir Hardie Primary School.
