Resonics was called in to provide an acoustic solution for the ambitious conversion of a pub in West London’s Notting Hill into a fine-dining restaurant.
The plush interior – finished with a copper detail and featuring a central oval bar and patterned marble flooring – required a bespoke ceiling to match. The brief was to create a bespoke acoustic ceiling that mirrored the restaurant’s floor.
The solution had to incorporate a hidden sound system, while allowing for existing ceiling services.
The challenge was to make the ceiling reflect the floor – comprised of a series of alternating triangular segments radiating from the centre of the room.
We installed a combination of Class A acoustic absorbers to the office’s ceiling and acoustic fabric panels to the walls. The combination negated the low ceiling, while targeting any reflection echoes created by the office’s walls.
Our use of fabrics to match the existing office partitions meant our wall panels blended seamlessly into the office. The patterned hanging ceiling panels broke up the otherwise plain ceiling.
The high density of acoustic materials created a comfortable acoustic environment for worker comfort and easy communication.
