An absolute specialty is that the acoustic design ceiling features a combination of random perforation and non-perforated plasterboard surfaces. The resulting routing systems with guide function end up in circular paths above which round ceiling elements are located that are also made of smooth plasterboard.
Routing systems and circular ceiling segments accommodate some intricate fibre optics for the light guide system and for effectively illuminating the exhibits. This required extreme precision in design and manufacturing.
Another special challenge was the existing ancient timber framework which was provided with shadow gaps all around.
