Guildhall School of Music, a historic institution founded in 1880, has been a cornerstone in the world of performing arts education.
Located in the heart of the City of London’s Barbican, the school underwent a monumental transformation with a £90 million redevelopment.
This case study explores how our acoustic curtains and blinds seamlessly integrated into the school’s state-of-the-art performance spaces, enhancing both aesthetics and functionality.
Enviroscreen was specifically chosen to design and install floor-to-ceiling acoustic curtains in the Guildhall School’s ensemble and practice rooms.
Given the significant weight of these curtains, our team employed specialised calculations to ensure they could still be hand-drawn without compromising their acoustic properties.
In addition to the curtains, we also manufactured bespoke acoustic free-standing panels that perfectly complemented the stage areas in the new performance spaces.
These installations not only met but exceeded the school’s requirements, offering a blend of aesthetic grace and functional excellence.
The result was a harmonious integration of our products into a setting that demands the highest standards in acoustic performance.
