Perfecting Acoustics For Ngee Ann Kongsi Auditorium @ UTown Campus
Quality acoustic solutions and pleasing aesthetics are important in creating a comfortable and beautiful auditorium space. This is what dB Acoustics achieved for the Ngee Ann Kongsi Auditorium at NUS University Town (UTown) in Dover Road, Singapore.
The design plan was to create a timeless natural yet rustic timber look while meeting the different acoustical requirements.
dB Acoustics, together with the architect and the acoustic consultant, came up with these sustainable acoustic solutions. The auditorium walls were cladded with solid recycled pine blocks of different shapes and sizes, and an overhead absorptive acoustic drum lined with timber battens was installed.
The unfinished pine wood acoustic blocks add a warm, rustic feel to the auditorium space, while creating a perfectly diffuse sound field. The acoustic drum with timber battens boosts sound absorption and serves as an attractive design feature.
Acoustic outcomes: clear sound projection, high voice intelligibility, no annoying echoes, even sound dispersion.
