Mercedes-Benz Financial Services recently unveiled its new office in Fort Worth, Texas. Designed by SmithGroup, the open-concept, modern space embodies iconic Mercedes style with Texas flair. Designed for maximum flexibility and functionality, the facility can comfortably accommodate 1,000 employees and is loaded with luxurious amenities, including a full-time barista, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and ample outdoor space situated on expansive terraces and patios.
To ensure the expansive, open-plan space would serve as a comfortable, working environment, acoustical finishes were key to controlling excessive noise. To address the need for acoustics without compromising flexibility or function, K-13 in custom color “Iron Ore” was utilized throughout the facility. Unlike hard surfaces which reflect sound, K-13 custom color absorbs excessive noise while complementing the sleek design.
In addition to acoustic performance, K-13 is GREENGUARD Gold Certified and contributes towards a healthier indoor environment. Manufactured in Texas from sustainable cellulose fibers, K-13 also helps to reduce the environmental footprint of the project.
