Wave curtains bring privacy and warmth to Roz Barr’s scheme for design district club

Roz Barr Architects’ design for the Bureau Club in Greenwich Design District has been completed with a series of ‘wave’ curtains created by Waverley. 

Building C3 is among the most striking buildings in the development, with undulating walls interrupted by large windows of different sizes. The building is home to Bureau, a flexible coworking member’s club for creatives. The wavy, white facade creates informal pockets of space on the interior, ideal for flexible working models.

Waverley collaborated with Roz Barr and global textile manufacturer Kvadrat at the specification stage and recommended the heading finish of all curtains, along with a range of motorised and standard curtain tracks for the fabrics they had specified.

Roz Barr says, “The range of sheer and acoustic textiles chosen has added the finishing touch to an atmosphere perfect for the London based creative. With environments for both collaboration and focus, the building is a great example of an environment designed to be flexible and inclusive, which after all, is what coworking is all about.”

Every one of Waverley’s curtains had to be curved to fit the bespoke profile of the window. The complex high-level curtains did not follow an exact radius, but rather the undulating façade, so the track had to be made in sections.

All Kvadrat fabrics achieved excellent sustainability ratings – with Greenguard Gold certification across all, and EU Ecolabel on two out of the three fabric ranges chosen.

“The young designers and creatives who make up the Design District’s tenants want to know that the building in which they work and collaborate is not simply functional and attractive, but that it echoes their values,” says Ben Vowles, Specification Manager at Waverley. “Responsible materials which contribute to the district’s net zero journey are a given.”
