The London Gunnnersbury Park Museum is a prime example of how high-performance acoustic solutions, from companies such as Troldtekt, can solve the problem of noise in public and leisure places.
As design trends continue towards minimal furniture and hard surfaces, it becomes ever more so important to reconcile aesthetics with personal comfort.
As part of its Heritage Lottery Funded redevelopment, London’s once-neglected Gunnersbury Park Museum has been transformed, now boasting new gallery and learning spaces, as well as a brand-new exhibit which details the stories of local people.
A new addition to the Regency Mansion is the pavilion, originally designed to house both the catering facilities and horse-drawn carriages that are a large part of the Park’s heritage.
When considering its redesign, the architects wanted to create a space to provide a hub for the Park, which emotionally connected with visitors to the Museum and regular users of the Park.
With this in mind, the designers chose to specify Troldtekt panels – with their natural look and feel, couple with their acoustic properties, they were the ideal solution for the ceiling. It also allowed them to use harder surface materials elsewhere to suit the architecture of the pavilion.
Path Design commented: “We needed to ensure that we addressed what could be a relatively hard interior because of the heavy floors we needed for high traffic catering and the predominantly glazed elevations.
“As such, we looked to soften acoustically the space to reduce the background noise generated by the open kitchen and coffee machines, along with the general noise created by visitors.”
Troldtekt panels are specified across the UK and Europe, improving interior acoustic environments. They offer high sound absorption, high durability, natural breathability and low cost life cycle performance, in addition to inherent sustainability.
