Advertorial Showcases Unique Ceiling in Great Room of Kaplan Hall

NEWBURGH, N.Y. – The ceiling of the Great Room in Kaplan Hall on SUNY Orange's Newburgh campus is the focus of an advertorial that appears in the September issue of "Architectural Record" magazine.

The one-page advertorial was purchased by Ceilings Plus, the firm that provided the materials for the unique angled ceiling. The piece is part of a special section dedicated to New York City-area architectural projects completed during the 10 years since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Following is the text from the advertorial:

Wood Ceiling and Wall Panels Provide Quiet Elegance – The wood ceilings in this second-story community room are visible through glass facades, offering a warm invitation to the public below. C Ceilings Plus panels with Arboreal® FSC-certified veneer on aluminum with 85% recycled content contribute to the project’s anticipated LEED Silver certification.

Perforated panels are backed with recycled-fabric insulation for outstanding acoustics. George Green, AIA , principal with JMZ Architects and Planners, says, “We use Ceilings Plus when we’re trying to create interesting ceiling materials and forms that are also accessible and lightweight. Ceilings Plus offers designers great flexibility; we can do a lot with their panels.”
