lightweight fabric ceiling system
Improves acoustics & aesthetics
Having worked on a number of Irish projects over the past few years and being known worldwide for expertise in tensile fabric architecture, Architen Landrell were contracted to design, manufacture and install a fabric panel system to clad the ceiling and walls at the leisure and sport complex and the University College Dublin.
The client required tensile fabric ceiling and wall panels to be fitted between existing glulam beams to provide shading for the complex and conceal the framework for the building.
Due to its hard wearing properties and clean aesthetic, a white Batyline HM mesh was used to create the 16 panels: 8 identical wall panels each approximately 3m x 4.5m and 8 ceiling panels (7 of which were identical) each covering an area of approximately 4m x 13.5m.
Stretched fabric ceilings are often used interior spaces as they provide an element of sophistication, look stunning under uplighting and have multiple uses, UCD student complex is a prime example of this.
Everyone involved in the project is very pleased with the final result.
