Ecophon: Boston Haven High School

Colour has been used to great effect by Saint-Gobain Ecophon as part of a striking acoustic solution in the brand new cafeteria of Boston Haven High School in Lincolnshire.

Architects Mouchel specified Ecophon’s Solo™ acoustic ceiling rafts in brightly coloured red. This was chosen to help integrate with the overall red and grey scheme running throughout the new extension of the school.

Each raft was cut to a bespoke size while two were cut on site to allow installation around existing pillars. Lighting was also integrated to create further visual impact.   

Cafeterias are characterised by lots of hard surfaces which reflect noise and they can become uncomfortable to spend any length of time in. To help absorb sound, ten Solo rafts were hung from the ceiling. This not only helped to improve the acoustic environment but also created a visually stunning finish.

Ecophon’s Gedina™ acoustic ceiling tiles were installed in other areas of the school including some classrooms. The school is very pleased with the result as it means the cafeteria works well as a meeting and socialising space for staff and pupils.
