SterlingOSB Zero stuns visitors in new office space

SterlingOSB Zero stuns visitors in new office space

Architecture and interior design firm, Axis Mason, decided to renovate the interior of its new office, Somerville House, at Saint Helier in Jersey. The project became a statement for the firm’s design philosophy and act as a showcase for clients to explore the possibilities that they're capable of. SterlingOSB Zero, from Norbord, the leading manufacturer of engineered wood panels, was chosen early on as an ideal material to complete the new project. The material is an oriented strand board with zero-added formaldehyde which makes it more sustainable than its plywood counterparts.

The new office features a standalone pod; a server room; a disabled toilet; a full height living wall with integrated seating; and a reception desk. All of these features incorporate SterlingOSB Zero with the standalone pod being built entirely in Norbord’s fantastic product. Siobhann Macleod, an Associate and Interior Designer at Axis Mason commented, “We have a very broad client base, ranging from wealthy corporate businesses to individuals who enjoy good design but don’t necessarily have the money to spend on expensive products. The interiors had to demonstrate a diversity of humble materials, with moments of beauty and extravagance.” And so, SterlingOSB Zero was the best product for the job with the added bonus of its “edgy” urban aesthetic.

The oriented strand board is backed by sustainable credentials, such as FSC-certification, and so offers an environmentally friendly alternative to other materials on the market. It became primary material in the refurbishment, used in a variety of locations which have sparked interesting conversations with prospective clients and visitors and added a unique aesthetic to the space.
