The Project

We were contacted by our client’s design team, KSS Architects and Portview, to install a Rockfon Mono Acoustic plaster solution for the new King’s Cross Samsung Experience Centre in London.

The Samsung King’s Cross is not a shop, but an experience space designed to give guests the ultimate immersive brand experience. Samsung KX is a space where people are invited to discover, interact with and learn new skills in a dynamic, innovative environment, so the acoustics had to be perfect.

We attended a design meeting, alongside Rockfon, to discuss the project in more detail and to show that Rockfon was the best product for this project. We decided to use Rockfon and proceeded to discuss how to install this product.

The Solution

The detailed curved troughs, within the large symmetrical space, were installed using plywood formers fixed to the grid works. We installed the plasterboard and beading to form the curves and sprayed with Rockfon Mono elegant render, in white.

We installed the Rockfon mono panel in the areas between the troughs, for which we required systematic installation techniques by our specialist team. We had to work from Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPS) due to the awkwardness of the sloping areas and great expanse. We sprayed the finished product with Rockfon elegant render to achieve a white ceiling with 87% light reflection and 99% light diffusion, ensuring that the ceiling looks clean and neat. The finished ceiling has a 9.4 rating on the L value (iso7724 measured 1 black and 100 white).

Our team oversaw the installation of the lighting and ventilation outlets, ensuring that they integrated perfectly into the troughs.

We were appointed to carry out the works in a very short time frame, so our team worked long hours to finish the project perfectly and on time. Samsung KX achieved their requirement of a unique and visually beautiful space for people to browse and explore.
