Not Quite Natural

At Lisle Elementary School in the Chicago suburbs, an immediately striking feature is the sprawling wood-look plank ceiling that greets students outside in the canopies at the school’s south and east entrances. The natural aesthetic of wood continues into the school’s corridors,where the design team from Perkins + Will specified CertainTeed perforated ceiling panels in Rift Cut White Oak veneer for their natural look and acoustic qualities. From a distance, the ceiling is unmistakably wood. In reality, it’s metal with a wood-look finish from the Box series by Hunter Douglas Ceilings & Walls from CertainTeed. Thanks to a unique metal construction, of 92% recycled materials, the Box series is engineered to perform in both interior and exterior applications, and features design flexibility with a variety of versatile wood finish options.
