Aluminium ceiling for International Criminal Court

Aluminium ceiling for International Criminal Court

Hunter Douglas played its part in the creation of the new €204 million International Criminal Court (ICC), providing 29,000m2 of ceiling panels.

The 56,000m2 complex, designed by architect Bjarne Hammer, of Denmark’s renowned agency Schmidt, Hammer, Lassen Architects, had to express the essence of democratic architecture – something that the Hunter Douglas ceiling clearly demonstrates.

“The ceiling connects spaces and creates a sense of sameness throughout the building,” explains Hammer, “because the same ceiling is suspended everywhere: where the suspects’ reside, where the lawyers work and in the office spaces.”

Hunter Douglas was commissioned to manufacture slim aluminium ceiling panels, perforated and inlaid with acoustic mats. These were selected for practical reasons because it enables fire safety and air quality installations to be tucked away neatly.

The ceiling installation was also tailored so that rooms could be partitioned easily. The sustainable quality of aluminium was another important factor in choosing the Hunter Douglas panels.
Because the ICC’s offices will be lit permanently with LED-lighting, 100,000 LED lamps have been integrated in the perforated panels, maintaining the ceiling's clean look.
