Re-Defining the Meaning of Open Spaces

A new remodel uses Fortina to help define and describe a
collaborative, yet distanced, workplace 

In order to bring a breezy-but-sophisticated feel to this remodeled HQ in Silicon Valley, Studio Blitz recognized that getting rid of the old, enclosed spaces would do the trick. The cubicles and perimeter offices acted as both physical and visual barriers, so the team looked for a product that could open these spaces up for easy and spontaneous interactions and collaborations between employees.

They turned to B+N Industries’ Fortina louvers in a warm oak finish for several interventions. First, they used louvers oriented vertically and spaced out to create discrete spaces, like the company’s lounge, meeting, and reception areas.

The team also used Fortina to create trellises that enclose collaboration spaces within larger open areas. Finally, they arranged the ceiling louvers in a grid pattern to create visual interest in the main, open office breakout space.

Fortina is a remarkable architectural system that will fool your senses: replicating wood slats and louvers with aluminum and a hyper-realistic non-PVC surface. It dramatically enhances environments with the benefits of lighter weight, less cost, less waste, easier installation, as well as more consistent color and finish than real wood. 

Fortina For B+N can be used in both interior and exterior situations such as walls, ceilings, handrails, cladding, garage doors, and countless other applications.
