Founded over 40 years ago, the University of Bayreuth [UBT] has enjoyed a continuous and favourable track record. In autumn 2018, renovation of lecture theatre H15 was completed. durlum supplied an appropriate ceiling solution for this project. Powder-coated in white, the dur-SOLO® raft ceilings imbue this space with an almost weightless character. The elements are suspended and joined together down their long sides and are more than just a visual highlight. They are lined with fabric, and this greatly improves the acoustics in the lecture theatre – a much more congenial atmosphere for the students.
The STARLAM open-cell ceiling was also used to accompany these raft ceiling elements. The linear template impresses with its accentuated linear geometry and this underscores the clear, transparent atmosphere of this interior space. The wall solution at the front provides an optimum contrast to the bright, open ceiling. The grey powder-coated metal tiles that frame the projection wall are also perforated and lined with fabric. An entirely successful (acoustic) concept that creates ideal conditions for the students.
