Chur Cantonal School

Promote Peace and Quiet

In even the most cutting-edge educational institution, successful learning requires spaces that promote peace and quiet for effective study. This was critical to the creation of a new media learning centre at the Cantonal School of Graubünden – a digitally equipped library renovation in which acoustics and design needed to work hand in hand.

MINERAL Sonic Element Circle presented the answer. Combining excellent acoustic performance with a contemporary design style, this solution enabled the team to create a learning space that looked as good as it sounded. Bright, bold, circular shapes meet with effective sound absorption in a fresh, airy library that gives students the visual and aural focus to tackle even the most complex and challenging academic subjects.
