A striking ‘red carpet’ acoustic cinema has been revealed at Wheller On The Park retirement village in Queensland, with residents and staff involved in the design process.

Acoustic Cinema – The Brief

The area is a multipurpose room, not only a cinema but also a chapel and practice room for choir. It needed to have little or no noise reverberation to accommodate all of these activities. An acoustic product was required that not only gave great acoustics, but also set the scene for the activities taking place in that room.

The Design 

Many hours were spent scrolling through online images. After consultation with the residents and staff the “red carpet” scene was selected. Having a custom design printed on an acoustic wall achieved all the requirements of the brief.
