In the autumn of 2019, Vejen Rådhus (town hall) was completed after an extensive renovation. The purpose of the renovation was based on a great desire to create a more modern building focusing on good indoor climate and people's wellbeing. The chosen ceiling solutions, Rockfon Blanka® and Rockfon® Mono® Acoustic, with their excellent acoustic and aesthetic properties, were ideal for the expectations of the new city's town hall. Vejen Rådhus now offers a brighter and pleasant atmosphere thanks to the improved indoor climate and modern working environment. 

Noise in open office spaces

A town hall must be open to citizens to visit every single day, which is why one must expect a lot of movement that can make noise. Besides, open buildings - as with large office offices with an open office landscape - will naturally also bring noise and disturbance with them. Therefore, good acoustics are especially crucial for a town hall, where employees work closely together in the office landscape, from where they talk to all the citizens who come by daily.

Focus on good indoor climate and working environment

A good indoor climate is essential to ensure wellbeing and productivity in a working environment. On the contrary, a bad indoor climate affects concentration, stress levels and efficiency. That is why it is incredibly important to create an optimal indoor climate, both for the employees and visiting citizens.
Vejen's new town hall has been built with a focus on an excellent indoor climate to guarantee a great working environment where to interact and collaborate. To meet this goal, one must consider factors such as sound, light and air. The acoustic solutions used have high sound absorption and therefore ensure a comfortable sound level. The acoustic panels also have a unique product property where daylight is drawn in and distributed further out into the room. The natural light also has a positive effect on the indoor climate.

The durability of Rockfon acoustic ceilings

A town hall is visited daily by many citizens, at the same time as it serves as a workplace for the employees. The materials in the building must therefore be able to withstand many people's daily visits to the town hall. The acoustic solutions from Rockfon have an anti-static surface that makes the materials resistant to dirt and wear, which prolongs the life of the products.

Modern architecture provides a warm welcome with great design

Many public buildings are often characterized by dull and monotonous architecture. That can no longer be said about Vejen town hall. The new town hall presents a combination of classic and modern architecture that complements each other so that the building at the same time appears static and dynamic. The building is open with its bright facade, which is a style that continues within the City Hall doors with a combination of wood and white elements, including Rockfon Blanka® and Rockfon® Mono® Acoustic. The open architecture gives all citizens a warm welcome from the moment they stand outside the town hall until they are inside.
