The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2018-10-22T03:12:45Z Keystone Involved in Atura Hotel at Adelaide Airport Project 2018-10-22T03:12:45Z keystone-involved-in-atura-hotel-at-adelaide-airport-project Acoustic panel specialist Keystone has been involved in the recently completed Atura Hotel at Adelaide Airport. The hotel is an ultra-convenient accommodation option for inbound and outbound travellers, situated just metres from Adelaide’s domestic and international terminal. Keystone supplied Key-Ply 12mm AC Hoop Pine plywood perforated ceiling panels in the lobby, working with their south Australian representative Guy Surfaces. These panels were cleverly machined with a reverse cone-shaped perforation to eliminate the visibility of the internal edge profile within the perforations, thus creating the dark shadow. The ground floor lobby area includes a restaurant and bar area, with a walkway on level 2 directly linking the hotel with the airports domestic and international check-in area. Perforated Key-Ply panels are engineered to create a natural and organic timber appearance. A variety of aesthetics can be created with pre-finishes including metallic, wood grain and pearl effects with a variety of perforation patterns and borders. The inherent acoustic qualities of timber can be combined with comprehensive perforation techniques and backing materials to achieve optimum noise reduction, especially when used with K100 backing. Depending on the open area, slotted or perforated pattern being used, Key-Ply can be an excellent sound insulator. The acoustic qualities of timber can be optimised by Keystone Acoustics’ compressed perforation techniques and various backing materials they have available. This option creates a natural timber appearance that is often chosen for its warmth, beauty and natural acoustic properties. By adding Key-Ply perforated plywood panels it creates an atmosphere of organic elegance. Its powerful acoustic qualities will provide sound insulation to further add to the ambience you have created. Key-Ply perforated plywood is perfect for interior and exterior walls and ceilings, including high traffic area walls, high-impact wall linings in shopping centres and hotels, hallways, auditoriums, theatres and studios. Keystone collaborated with architects HASSELL, builders and installers Adelaide Partitions and Ceilings for this project. The company supplies architects, interior designers and builders with linings and acoustic solutions for interior walls, ceilings, exterior facades and soffits. They also provide large format 3D colour printing. Their architectural consultants and project managers work with clients upfront on the large range of possibilities, technical support, product specifications and making budgets work.

Keystone’s KEY LENA solid and perforated to custom shapes gave this creative and innovative project by Tonkin Zulaikha Greer Architects a glamourous and luxurious feel. With an endless list of pre-finished options to choose from, KEY-LENA panels can be perforated, patterned, slotted or shaped to provide maximum noise reduction. For even better acoustic performance, KEY LENA can be combined with K100 backing.  The design for the Virgin Australia Lounges has been conceived as the next step in domestic air travel, a pleasurable experience rivalling the glamour days of air travel. The lounge provides all the requirements of the modern traveller: a working hub, internet hook-up, relaxing library, dining and drinking spaces, and a verandah to watch the world go by. An airport can be perceived as a place of movement – of planes, people and luggage. This is the underlying architectural theme for the Virgin Australia Lounge, allowing guests to glide from one space to another, avoiding the clumsiness and confusion of travel. The lounge has been conceived as a set of loosely interconnected spaces – a short stay, verandah, hub, library, bar etc – all visually held together by the ‘net’ ceiling, which establishes the organic geometry for the entire space. The recesses between the interconnecting ceiling panels conceal the myriad of required services. KEY-LENA architectural panels are available in a wide range of pre-finished options and tailored to suit any environment. KEY-LENA is suitable for commercial and residential applications and is an excellent choice for feature panels. They can be used on internal wall panels and internal ceiling panels.  KEY-LENA has a large selection of decorative finishes. They have a high degree of strength and excellent machining capabilities. They come in large panels sizes and can be shaped and angled. KEY-LENA perforation and slot panels are available in five standard patterns.

St Paul’s College Manly is a Secondary School for Boys and is part of the state listed St Patrick’s Estate. St Paul’s was established on the site in 1964 when the main school teaching buildings were constructed over a number of stages through to the 1970’s. TKD Architects developed a Masterplan for St Paul’s allowing for the renewal of the school in stages to continue its operations during construction. The first stage is the Multipurpose Hall to provide an indoor venue to accommodate its 675 students. The Multipurpose Hall has been designed to meet the requirements of the Secondary Schools Facilities Standards, compliance with current building codes, accessibility requirements and current curriculum standards. A number of programs will be accommodated in the hall including school assembly, a gymnasium, indoor sports events, examinations, functions and performances.

Their products Key-Lena Palette Series Ebony MDF with 19mmx195mm dowels and perimeter panels Perforated Key-Lena Palette Series Ebony MDF featured in this project.   Brown Falconer Architects were commissioned by the library, situated in Aldinga Beach, to redesign the interiors. Their head of interior design, Kristi Cook, wanted to highlight natural materials of timber, coral and the nearby beach into a modern design. Inspired by dowels used to make peg boards, Kristi wanted the design to create a ‘beachy feel’. This led to the round timber dowel for the feature ceiling component of the library.   Keystone supplied the backing board of coloured MDF to which the dowels were attached. 169 dowels were attached to each of 250 panels. 42,450 dowels were used to create the ceiling which measures to 8.5km. The main plan of the architects was to create a reflective feature ceiling that would incorporate many services such as CCTV, lights, smoke detectors, coupled with easy access and maintenance. The dowels were perfectly placed to hide these services in the design.   Keystone’s products that were used in this project included Keystone Linings and Acoustics Key-Lena Palette Series Ebony with 195mm pine dowels and Key-Lena Palette Series Ebony MDF with 19mmx195mm dowels. The perimeter panels were Perforated Key-Lena Palette Series Ebony MDF.   Keystone products include their extensive list of eco-friendly and fully customisable fire rated options that are excellent for the construction of beautiful, functional and totally unique spaces.
