Innovative architecture to match new educational style


The architectural framework of a school needs to support its educational style. Therefore, the construction of the new Joachim Schumann school was seen as a good opportunity by the local authorities to introduce a brand new and innovative teaching concept. Needless to say that the architecture of the school and the building materials chosen were expected to be no less innovative.


An essential condition for good indoor comfort in the new school has been the acoustics. Knauf Danoline’s Belgravia with Tangent perforation was chosen as the acoustic solutions due to its acoustic profile as well the aesthetic expression.


The oval perforation design of Tangent and the rectangular format of Belgravia were the perfect match to the modern architecture of the school. The acoustic ceilings thus contribute to the overall harmonic expression. Furthermore, the semi-recessed Belgravia ceiling in a rectangular format offered a flexible and straightforward installation method which was important an important feature to the contractors from Kreis Darmstadt  Dieburg.
