In 2006, Sydney University had architecturally designed concepts put together for its new contemporary facelife, wanting an ultra modern look, but also to have acoustical sound barrier.

Having a constant flow of young students through the building, acoustics were the main focus of the design. After some research, designers found that Bailey Interiors' fibrous plaster ceiling tiles were able to be manufactured to any architectural specification.

Being able to achieve the desired look as well as being functional was the result designers and the University were all looking for by combining striking colours including purples and greens, projecting a calming yet energetic feel to the building, which were combined with vertical timber panels adding depth and an artistic overview.

Acoustic ceiling tiles are a sound efficient product. Fibrous plaster ceiling tiles are also available as fire-rated tiles and they can be made to suit any specification or design.
