An early 20th century barn that underwent extensive conversion features an intricate solid wood feature grill panel ceiling, custom-designed and made by the expert Hunter Douglas team. Hunter Douglas was commissioned to manufacture and supply 245m2 of the grill panels to create an individually designed ceiling that softened industrial-style roof of the 600m2 single-storey building.
Using ayous solid wood stained to look like oak, the aesthetically attractive fire-retardant grill system comprises 35mm x 35mm slats with 17mm gaps. The panels were fitted at different angles and orientations, to create the required aesthetic effect and a patented clip is used to secure the panels to the sendzimir galvanised steel suspension rails. Juliette Halliday, of Hunter Douglas, said: “This was another example of Hunter Douglas team using its extensive expertise to create a completely bespoke grill panel system for a client.”
