West Franklin Apartments


Acoustic carpet tiles make inner-city modern quietly livable.

Within the revitalization of the old industrial sectors of Adelaide is a reclaimed bakery, now a hip urban village tower the West Franklin Apartments. Marrying historic red-brick walls with modern glass and metals, the modernist remaking required some acoustic planning to assure a high standard of livability. The developers had acoustics in mind at the outset of their design plans and chose Acoufelt carpet featuring QuietBack™ as the backbone of their soundscape, quietly gathering up unwanted noises and reverberation from hard surfaces.
