Interior Designers: Rosie Taylor - Unispace
Innovation in interior acoustics in education
Westmount School recently refurbished their Kaipara campus to include a new learning centre designed around modern learning styles. The learning centre includes a large open collaborative area, banquet seating, and glazed brainstorm and project rooms. Although aesthetically pleasing, the hard surfaces and large open space had the potential to produce high levels of noise reverberation – creating a disruptive learning environment.
Aware of the potential issue, interior design group Unispace sought out a high-performing custom acoustic solution that would be visually appealing whilst enhancing the fun and engaging learning environment.
Benefits & Feedback
Post installation of Frontier, the new learning centre promotes a calm yet collaborative environment, benefiting students and staff alike. On the success of this project, similar projects are in the pipelines for the Nelson and Hastings Westmount campuses.
Frontier is highly durable, non-allergenic, non-irritant, and non-toxic. The complete design flexibility of Frontier fins allows endless possibilities and solutions for environments in need of acoustic treatment.
