Arts and Culture
Acoustics projects undertaken by dB Acoustics in the arts and cultural sector include:
BW Monastery, WoodlandsOfficially opened in August 2017, the new headquarters for BW Monastery stands tall at Woodlands Drive 16. dB Acoustics supplied acoustic ceiling and acoustic wall panels to its Level 4 Multi-Purpose Hall to provide sound absorption which reduces the echo.
The Buddhist Union
The existing ceiling of this Buddhist temple at Lowland Road was highly reflective and resulted in excessive reverberation. Ecophon acoustic ceiling tiles were successfully installed onto the existing ceiling and introduced the much needed sound absorption.
Sultan Mosque has a history that dates back to 1824 and is considered one of the most significant mosques in Singapore. The mosque building was rebuilt in 1928 and has remained essentially unchanged since then. It was gazetted as a national monument in 1975. Modern upgrading exercises has now included acoustics as an important element of the mosque’s environment.
Christ’s Methodist Church @ East Coast Road
To this award winning structure, dB Acoustics has provided custom solutions to the worshipping hall, classrooms, office, and dance studio with Ecophon Solo free hanging ceiling panels. Featuring an oval-shaped panel built by joining three individual panels, the worshipping hall was given special aesthetics together with high performance echo control.
The classrooms were treated with an array of square panels laid in an overlapping fashion. All mechanical, electrical and media outputs installed on the ceiling were easily incorporated.
Arts Science Museum and Theatre @ Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort
Not many who visit the iconic lotus-inspired Arts Science Museum at Marina Bay Sands Singapore realise that this world-class museum and exhibition space have been acoustically treated by dB Acoustics to create an ambience of perfect tranquillity.
Large Ecophon Sombra concealed grid panels provide excellent Class A sound absorption for the museum’s exhibition and event halls.
At the main theatre where world-class musicals and performance are staged, Ecophon acoustic ceilings and wall panels provide the noise absorption.
