Perspective Magazine

Our Teaching Block at the Ulster University Magee Campus is featured in this summers July–August edition of Perspective Magazine reviewed by Marianne O’Kane Boal.

Our interior design for the Better Gym in the heart of Belfast as published in Northern Builder, illustrates our use of Ecophon acoustic solo baffles that offered a practical acoustic solution in the large volume space with great aesthetic appeal.

August update; the Gym Manager has told us that the acoustics in the Gym are working really well. They can hold a class in one part of the open plan without disrupting other activities. It’s always good to get positive feedback on our design intentions.
