The central hall at the administration building of Polytechnic Institute suffered from bad acoustics and insufficient lighting. We took the opportunity to also improve the overall appearance of the hall and add some atmosphere to the otherwise dull space.
We used wood boards together with dark grey acoustic panels along the walls of the hall. Additional acoustic panels are suspended from the glass roof of the hall. Their different height gives the room a sense of rhythm. Light strips along the balconies and under the roof create an atmospheric lighting for the hall.
