Once Whitehill Primary School removed the curtains from their main school hall, they found that they were left with a very noisy space - essentially a hard cased box. 

Due to the nature of the space to be filled, a fun-looking design needed to be created whilst solving the acoustic problem.

Using a design suitable for a school hall and which would appeal to the pupils, coloured fabric panels filled with foam were hung to the roof and to the walls resolving the problem of sound reverberation and noise.
