Music Industry College in Fortitude Valley, QLD is an innovative new educational facility in Brisbane. It was established in 2010 to provide education for Year 11 & 12 students who are seeking a career in the music Industry. The college focus is to empower young people to succeed in the music industry and in life. The Directors of Music Industry College believe that each student is unique and their uniqueness needs to be identified, encouraged and developed. And true learning will only take place the College staff and curriculcum meets the students’ real interest and educational needs.
The school campus should provide an environment that encourages the students’ creativity. Therefore acoustic quality within the school facility, especially in music rooms, plays a key role in ensuring the students enjoy the most exciting music experience in their journey to explore their unique talent.
This is where Decor Systems acoustic wall panels come in for assistance. DecorTrend wall panels were specified to provide a quality acoustic environment to the campus facility. With DecorImage Spotted Gum finish, the college rooms also gained a natural look that fostered the connection between nature and creativity.
As an interior of a creative environment, the design of the walls itself was creative. There are LED lights zig zagged along the walls, like movements of sounds. Our challenge was to ensure that the grooving of our wall was adequate to support these LED lights. We worked closely with the architect and electrical engineers to ensure that the products we produced supporting the lighting structure with in the panels.
It was a real pleasure for us watching the architect, Camilla Forwood at Hayes Anderson Lynch, taking our standard range product and turn it into something unique for the built environment they are working within.
