Major Lithium Company fit-out, Rhodes House, West Perth WA
Stunning impact made with unique perforated ceiling feature for Rhodes House
Posted By: Liana Pascoe 9th, August 2023
The newly completed Rhodes House building is leased by a major lithium company, creating a resources and agricultural hub in the heart of West Perth. Inside the contemporary office fit-out, a curved feature ceiling was created for the whole space, allowing the architect to make a vaulted ceiling with stunning impact a unique alternative to standard perforated ceiling panels.
The ceiling featured a mix of SUPALINE and SUPACOUSTIC custom curved panels, for which shop drawings were produced. Even when building challenges were experienced onsite, prototypes were engineered and produced, along with a backing rib section for the curved panels, that assisted with the installation of the final product.
The success of the project lay in the way the stakeholders worked together to customize the SUPAWOOD system to achieve the result and feature that they envisioned for the space. This was done through frequent and open communication with all key stakeholders, from the architect/design team, through to the builder and installation team.
Not only was the design respected and realised, but access hatches and design adjustments to accommodate existing services were made for the ceiling feature to integrate functionally and seamlessly onsite.
