Directly at the Adolfo Suáraez Madrid-Barajas airport, one of the most important aviation hub in Spain, there is the Madrid Marriott Auditorium hotel. The business hotel equipped with 860 hotel rooms and 56 conference and meeting rooms is one of the biggest and most modern hotels in Europe. By using the ceiling elements of durlum in the newly designed conference rooms, the interior designers of Requena y Plaza realized a design concept which offers the guests not only a highly professional working environment but also adapts itself easily to their individual needs.

Besides the comprehensive technical amenities, the conference and meeting rooms offer the possibility to flexibly adapt their size thanks to movable dividing walls. The open ceiling design is perfectly adapted to this function: divided in grids of 1.2 x 1.2 meters, there are raft ceilings, lights and technical installations. The dividing walls can be positioned around these grids. This allows a large variety of room arrangements and room sizes. Produced in various rectangular formats, the optical tiling effect of the raft ceiling could be avoided. In addition, their bright white coating offers an interesting color contrast with the black false ceiling from which they are suspended. The noise absorbing acoustic fleece in the dur-SOLO raft ceilings ensures optimum acoustics in the business rooms.

By this, the ceiling solutions of durlum support the open and flexible design concept of the Madrid Marriot Auditorium business hotel.
