In the heart of Leeds, the UK’s largest residential landlord Grainger continues its legacy of building innovative residential properties with Pin Yard; a 12–story development housing 216 apartment homes.

One of the features that sets Pin Yard apart is the 2000 square foot ground floor amenity space. The shared space includes an all-inclusive resident lounge, co-working space, gym, outdoor courtyard and events space – the sophisticated design of which takes its inspiration from the characteristics and history of the area, thanks to local award-winning interior design firm 74.

A longstanding design partner of Grainger, 74 returned to Acoufelt for its breadth of beautiful and functional acoustic products. Fracture Panels in Peach and Pearl were selected for their thematic Trellis design, and incorporated into the reception and co-working areas to instill privacy and offer noise absorption benefits.

In the gym facility, the focal point is an eye-catching feature wall comprised of Fracture Panels in the Spirograph pattern and the Peacock colorway. The striking design not only serves as a visual contrast to the neon signage, but also plays a pivotal role in fostering a comfortable acoustic environment for gym-goers, boasting a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 0.45.

As Grainger is committed to achieving net-zero carbon operations, the project demanded products to meet certain sustainability criteria. In addition to their acoustic value, Acoufelt’s Fracture Panels are made from 60% recycled PET, generated using 40% solar power.

With sustainability, sophistication, and occupancy comfort at the forefront of the design, Acoufelt’s acoustic Fracture Panels yet again tick all the boxes to deliver an all-round effective solution.

Acknowledged as a finalist in the Mixology North22: Living Interiors category, Pin Yard represents yet another successful partnership between Grainger, 74 and Acoufelt.
