They needed to expand the museum facility by adding a small world-class theater; WSDG was invited to meet the client’s expectations for the new building. The 250-seat space was designed to accommodate various types of music presentations, plays and art-oriented movies.
To achieve that, a series of variable acoustic panels, including an acoustic orchestra shell were installed. WSDG was responsible for all the acoustic design including construction and integration of the 7.1 surround audio system.
