Soundcraft timber doors for Falcon Wharf

Soundcraft timber doors for Falcon Wharf

Falcon Wharf stands next to the Westland Heliport by the Thames in Battersea, South West London. Soundcraft's brief was to manufacture and install over 400 glazed timber sliding doors and screens to create a winter garden behind curtain walling, for each flat.

The need to meet specific acoustic (in excess of 35dB) and ventilation requirements necessitated considerable, complex design development, including acoustic testing. Doors and screens were constructed from laminated veneered lumber (LVL) which was specially imported from Oregon, USA, for its legal and sustainable provenance and exceptionally stable performance. Doors and screens were installed on the perimeter of each floor, and if they were laid end to end the total length would have approached a mile.
