2015 Awards: Interior Finishes
New Lansing High School
The New Lansing high school in Lansing, Kansas, was designed by Hollis and Miller Architects. It includes a beautiful new auditorium and equally beautiful cafeteria. The auditorium interior features beautiful wood Panel Grilles, Aluratone 100 Acoustical Wood Veneered Panels with slots on the panel faces and Aluratone 900 with grooves on the panel faces. The outer auditorium walls feature flat and flexible wood veneered panels. Panel grilles were also installed on these walls. The cafeteria has a beautiful wood panel grille ceiling. All of the acoustical wood wall panels as well as the Panel Grille ceiling products were manufactured and provided by Rulon International. The large scale and professional installation was done by Hi-Tech Interiors.
Berklee College of Music
The "Caf' at the Berklee College of Music serves as a dining area during the day and performance venue at night. To impart a dynamic quality to the two-story space, MetaiWorks panels from Armstrong in a custom red color were installed in a series of ceiling clouds and on the balcony's "ribbon wall." The "ribbon wall" consists of three rows of panels stacked on top of each other. Because of the wall's curved design, all the panels were custom sized at the manufacturing plant. In total, 350 panels were installed using a hook-on system with custom angled panel edges.
The 2,600 square-foot customer reception area of the Capital One Bank and offices at 299 Park Avenue in New York resembles more of a museum than a bank. It is no surprise that the amazing design was the work of the architects from Gensler. Covering the ceiling and wall over a beautiful and very large metal infinity sculpture is Rulon International's very custom wood veneer accent beams. The white accent beams were modified and made special to compliment the bright white ceiling and wall that were installed by Rimi Woodcraft. The very difficult working conditions they faced did not deter them from completing an amazing installation that reflects highly on their professionalism.

Petzl North American Headquarters
The Petzl Company, a French climbing gear manufacturer, makes equipment for climbers, cavers, window washers, tree trimmers, and other people who work in vertical spaces. When designing its new North American headquarters in West Valley City, Utah, the company wanted the interior of the building to reflect this verticality. The wood grille ceiling and wall panels the architect chose for the lobby and other public areas emphasize the verticality theme, while adding warmth, color, and texture to the canyon-like space. The ceiling and wall design was created using Armstrong® WoodWorks® Grille standard regular ceiling panels and wall panels.
