Supawood Architectural Lining Systems supplied Supatile Slat ceiling tiles to allow accessibility into the ceiling cavity at the Arrow Energy office.

The project brief for the designers, Geyer was to enhance Arrow Energy’s key existing work culture of connecting people by creating an open, flexible and collaborative environment that was safe and sustainable, and would reflect the company brand.

The new interactive workspace required a clever ceiling lining solution that would look exceptional while providing trouble-free access to the ceiling cavities after construction. The product also needed to be available in numerous appearances and finishes for installation throughout differing space functions over multiple building levels.

Supawood’s Supatile Slat ceiling tiles met the designers’ functional and aesthetic requirements by providing unique options of lift and shift and drop-in tiles that would facilitate a fully accessible ceiling cavity. The use of ceiling tiles would also eliminate the need for multiple access panels as every area of the ceiling could easily be opened.

Supatile Slat also provided the designers with infinite flexible design options to achieve stunning directional slatted ceiling effects in an extensive choice of finishes including custom colours.

Individual workspaces and common areas throughout the fitout have been demarcated by the clever use of various slat configurations in distinct finishes. In some areas the slats have been used as features while in others the entire ceiling has been covered. Finishes range from stained solid timber slats, Supafinish concept timber veneers and Supacolour solid custom colours.

The designers were also able to ensure product consistency and quality by sourcing the entire system from a single supplier, Supawood. 

The Arrow Energy fitout has been shortlisted for several creative workplace design awards.
