Kilmartin Museum

Expansion and Innovation: Transforming a Historic Museum

In the ambitious redevelopment project of a 18th-century manse and farm buildings to create a seamless museum facility in 2021, HERADESIGN® wood wool ceiling tiles were utilised throughout the new extension and existing buildings. The acoustic performance of HERADESIGN® complemented the soft white and grey colour palette while providing a visually appealing and practical, acoustically effective solution for the unique architecture of the Kilmartin museum.

    The Knauf Ceiling Solutions HERADESIGN® wood wool ceiling tiles proved to be the ideal choice, offering a perfect balance of aesthetic and performance. Specified here in a palette of greys and natural tones, these panels perfectly blend with the building's brutalist look and provide much needed acoustic support to help open spaces perform as well as they look.
