Westmount School


Open plan learning comes with acoustic challenges, that can be managed from the floor up.

Schools all over the world are working to upgrade their facilities, creating more collaborative and flexible learning spaces. But these spaces come with the challenge of managing acoustics. New Zealand’s Westmount School gave this challenge to Unispace’s Matthew Hill. Hill turned to Acoufelt with the goal of reducing ambient noise with an acoustic floor. He chose QuietBack™ carpeting from the Flinders Collection, in a custom-sized plank format installed in an engaging pattern, using a blend of solid tones in breakout areas.
