SOHO SQUARE

GTA created a one-of-a-kind ‘departure lounge’ theme in Tripadvisor’s Soho office to perfectly reflect their brand and culture. The GTA team transformed this 1st floor space with a focus on the analysis and advice of their acoustician expert, resulting in a unique and functional space for Tripadvisor’s London team.

AT A GLANCE

HOW WE DID IT...

Following the completion of Tripadvisor’s other offices, GTA Interior were invited to design and build Tripadvisor’s London 1st floor office in Soho Square, and their brief was to tie together all their other floors themed around continents.   This multifunctional floor provides a workplace, an external meeting and hospitality venue and Tripadvisor's main reception. GTA created Tripadvisor's very own departure lounge with turbine booth seating, the galley style kitchen and a fuselage suspended ceiling. GTA identified the atrium as a problematic area acoustically. Once occupied and with several activities on going simultaneously, sound was expected to echo and become intolerable. GTA's acoustician analysed the existing space, creating data and results that defined the scope and specification for the acoustic treatment. The main acoustic absorber is a giant landscape of projecting felt fins applied to a double storey wall. The fins create an undulated surface that when hit by sound is absorbed eliminating the echo. The fins not only design out the expected acoustic problem but by simply coordinating from the outset they have become a key design feature in the space.
