Application

The interior of Red Bull's North American headquarters mirrors the company's image – trendy, contemporary and sporty. The structure was completely renovated to include a recording studio, movie theater and Olympic-sized gym. And the centerpiece of the building is a 250-foot-long undulating skateboard platform that separates offices and conference rooms, making it one of the most unique and energetic office spaces ever conceived.

The Cambridge Architectural system adds to the building's urban edge by infusing an alluring pattern and texture in front of the main reception desks, resulting in an engaging and unexpected motif much like what visitors will see when they move farther into the space.

Function

The architectural mesh system specified for the Red Bull North America headquarters effectively defines space without closing it off. This is a perfect solution for the expansive interior, where employees can often be found riding bicycles. For a company like Red Bull, which sponsors large-scale events, metal fabric nicely facilitates the planning of building space and activities, not to mention the sleek nature of its surroundings.

Benefit

Cambridge Architectural systems always combine superior aesthetics with high-quality performance, eliminating the need for additional materials. In the Red Bull North America headquarters, the sheer strength and long lifecycle of architectural mesh eliminate the need for replacement materials as well. Furthermore, Cambridge's flexible metal fabric panels were specifically engineered to fit the physical boundary behind the reception desks, ensuring a successful and issue-free installation. Once these materials, with a high volume of recycled content, reach the end of their lifecycles, they can be easily recycled into the next generation of architectural mesh.

Cambridge Architectural is an active member of the USGBC®, and helps architects take maximum advantage of LEED credit through the many categories in which architectural mesh systems apply.
