Baresque had previously done the Ground Floor and Level 5 of this government building with the same designer / facilities department who were ecstatic with the response from the staff. Feedback from all involved was that the work environment was stimulated through colour and texture, but still had a sense of calm and quiet through the use of Zintra.

When level 6 came live, the government requested Polli’s involvement again, with a more generous budget.

Polli has a long standing relationship with Baresque and loves working with us as a one stop shop for interior finishes. Once carpet is selected, Polli meets with Baresque to go through all wall and upholstery options for the spaces.

Zintra on all exposed walls, Zntra cladding options such as textures for meeting spaces and upholstery for the café added a more relaxed fun feel along with some striking perforated screens. Baresque’s ability to have acoustics, upholstery and screens all color co-ordinated made the selection process a breeze and easy to sell to the client as they knew of our range from previous fit outs. The later addition of Jive Crypton upholstery for workstations, again in colours that perfectly matched the Zintra and screens, helped the selection process remain on track.

What a great result!

We love sharing great uses of our Zintra Acoustic Panel and this is one of them!

Faced with the need for an acoustic solution in a very clinical looking, echoey space as students and staff walked through, designers MPH Architects from Adelaide briefed Baresque who  were able to come back with multiple acoustic solutions, eventually narrowing down on Baffles.

The designer wanted to take the look of our Wave baffle design, but with budget restrictions and a lot going on above the suspended ceiling, wanted to avoid anything else to be fixed through this ceiling. So Baresque were able to offer a combination of one of our latest product releases – the Hook Baffle – with custom blades to achieve the design needs. Our acoustic ceiling options were able to be customised in house and delivered within a very short lead time to meet the project needs.

The architects and clients were so happy with the result it has now been specified for other areas with the second order delivered not long after the first.

How to Choose the Right Wallcovering

By | Blog

Wallcoverings are an inventive and easy way to transform a room. Regardless of your personal style or decorative vibe you want to achieve for the space, you are sure to find something you like amongst the vast array of options offered. From luxurious and durable textures to easy-clean fabrics, Baresque has an impressive range of wallcoverings, and expert tips on how to choose the right wallcovering for your commercial or hospitality needs.

It starts with colour and design

As you begin your journey into the world of wallcoverings, there are a few key components to consider that will ensure you invest in a product that you truly love. Your first step  to finding the perfect wallcovering is noting down the colours and designs that take your fancy and applying them to the intended space. If you are decorating a smaller-sized room, pastels and little prints will enhance the feeling of spaciousness, while dark colour and large-scale patterns will bring the walls in. It’s important to remember that colours have an affect on emotions, so choose colours that are calming and relaxing.

Wallcovering designs allow you to show personability through your décor and be as creative as possible. You can do a feature wall or ceiling and use a dramatic pattern to make a bold statement or cover all four walls for a modern look. If you choose the latter, be sure to choose a simple design so not to overwhelm the space.

Durability and cost consideration

Once you have a colour and design in mind, you can start researching products that match your budget and will stand the test of time.

Textured wallcoverings can give dimension to a room and anchor certain points that you want to show-off, as well hide building imperfections or spills and markings.

If you have a strict budget and are particularly fond of a fabric or paper that is rather expensive, meet yourself some of the way and only cover a single wall to create an impact and save your hip pocket. Putting the more decorative wallcoverings only above dado will help avoid damage.

Baresque’s digital print capability

If you still find yourself uninspired, Seraphic Digital Print by Baresque is the perfect solution with countless options available. The technology combines limitless designs and thousands of substrates to choose from, meaning you create a bespoke pattern that is is perfectly suited to your individual taste.

A true team effort delivered real wow factor to this multi functional collaborative space and kitchen/social meeting area.

Working with Hames Sharley from the drawing stage, Tonkin required extensive consultation and collaboration between Baresque, our design / manufacturing team and the lighting designer, electrician, joiner and project manager to define how assembly and installation would work on site. It was the amazing attributes of our Zintra Acoustic Panel and Baresque’s openness to taking the design concept to work through the possibilities that finally delivered the client’s needs.

Interestingly the individual clouds were installed in sections then joined together as one 8.7m x 3.5m unit. Massive! The complete unit was then suspended 1m off the ground for the lighting team to come in thread their wires through to the top. The Cloud was then hung and the wiring pulled through to the ceiling to hard wire.

Moorebank Sports Club

Designed by Monocle Designs, Moorebank Sports Club are stoked with the way these Custom Zintra Baffles in their circular ceiling feature turned out.

Richie Stevens from Monocle says “the Zintra is aesthetically pleasing and provides the wow factor whilst still providing the sound absorption needed in a very large open plan bistro. The end result with the light filtering through is a standout!”

Baresque has a number of different standard acoustic baffle designs available but can also work closely with you to come up with something a bit different – or very different in this case! – to meet your exact project requirements.

Pullman Hotel Brisbane – Goldfinch Restaurant

Designed by – Accor Hotels

We just love this recent digital print job!

Originally the Crest International Hotel, what is now the Pullman was home to the famous local Goldfish Bar. Nearly 50 years on, the new venue goldFINCH was named with a nod to the “GOLD” of goldfish, but replacing “FINCH” for fish due to the space being light and airy – similar to an aviary.

Off the back of a number of positive past experiences, Pullman approached Baresque to assist with the wallcoverings which were required on a very tight leadtime. Despite the restaurant’s relaxed Hamptons feel, the wallcovering needed to make a visual statement to be seen by passers by. The aim was to create something fresh, whilst subtly linking back to the history of the site by incorporating the goldFINCH logo into the design.

From a render supplied for inspiration and scale, the wallcovering design was created by the Baresque team in collaboration with the hotel. Printed in-house, the result was a large scale succulent Australiana botanical print in colours that provided the required visual impact, whilst complimenting the surrounding space and interiors.
