From classic office settings to health care institutions and even in-door skydiving centres, every professional environment needs a fitting and flexible interior that reflects the organisation’s philosophy. Multidisciplinary interior solutions company TecnoSpace in Belgium is an expert at getting the best out of indoor spaces. Complementing their quality products is TecnoSpace’s commitment to a project’s speedy delivery. Alexandre Stoop, the CEO of TecnoSpace, says: “Speed is really important, as clients expect to see results quickly these days. We specialise in delivering quality interior solutions with a fast-turnaround time.” Founded in 1999, TecnoSpace started by building interior panelling systems, but by now it has grown to offer a whole range of interior services, adapted to 22 | Issue 28 | April 2016
suit the unique needs of an organisation. Aside from the classic plasterboard walls, TecnoSpace offers a large collection of glass panels, but also constructs ceilings and floors and offers bespoke solutions. TecnoSpace focusses on the corporate, retail and services sectors to create an interior design that allows for an organisation to evolve. It has completed many office environments, including for notaries, engineering firms and architecture agencies, as well as hospitals and car showrooms. Their top products include the single and double-glazed glass wall panels, available with a variety of fittings. “Especially the ones with slim profiles are popular, as they have a sleek look and a high design aspect. They also promote transparency and openness in an environment and optimise the distribution of natural light,” he says.
One recent project Stoop looks back on with pride is the completion of the interior of the world’s largest indoor skydiving wind tunnel in Liège. Opened in December last year, the interior of the building was created in a completely new, purpose-built facility. He says: “The main thing we had to take into account were two huge generators that create the airflow. We did the entire arrangement, from the walls to the ceilings and the paintwork.” Constantly looking for ways to innovate and expand their product range, TecnoSpace has just launched two new lines: TecnoWood and TecnoGreen. As the name implies, TecnoWood will complement their collection of glass and plasterboard walls with wood.
