Case Study: Sub Saves Innovative Navy Yard Ceiling


Philadelphia’s Navy Yard, a 1,200-acre waterfront campus on the Delaware River, is a collision of storied past and dynamic present: it served as the birthplace of the U.S. Navy in the 1770s and is a magnet for cutting-edge businesses today. One of the newest additions to this campus’s mix of historic brick structures and glass office towers is a cleverly designed LEED Gold certified building constructed in 2016 at 1200 Intrepid Avenue.

Case Study: Sub Saves Innovative Navy Yard Ceiling

As the first Philadelphia building designed by famed international firm Bjarke Ingels Group, the four-story structure offers a mesmerizing mix of angles and curves in a gesture resembling the bows of the massive, decommissioned warships in the nearby Navy Yard docks. It’s a design-forward aesthetic that provided the perfect new home for EMD Performance Materials, which moved into the first and third floors in late 2017.

The Vision

When envisioning its new Philadelphia headquarters, EMD Performance Materials demanded a functionality that served the science and tech company's collaborative spirit, and an openness that inspired its employees to think big. A specially designed acoustic ceiling using cascading Ecophon® Solo™ Clouds and Symphony® f suspended panels was used to address EMD's modern aesthetic goals while offering acoustic control that belies the vastness of the space.
