Theatre Bielefeld

Theatre Bielefeld

A flexible mesh ceiling made of architectural wire mesh alters the acoustics conditions according to the requirments.

During the renovation of the "Stadttheater" in Bielefeld, the architect put a lot of attention to the interior design. Above the red-covered-seats waves a sinuous ceiling made from MULTI-BARRETTE 8123. The wide archs of the mesh conceal floodlight bridges and acoustical sails.

The ceiling is sound and light permeable. The full volume above the mesh is available for acoustic purposes. If required the director can integrate the mesh ceiling into his production as a backlit sky.

With varying illumination the flexible mesh ceiling is a distinctive eye-catcher and at the same time alters the acoustic conditions according to the different requirements of spectacles and operas.
