Performing Arts

St. Peter’s College - Stage 6B

Octave Acoustics worked closely with Hayball Architects in the design and delivery of the acoustic design for St. Peter’s College new performing arts centre. This exciting project included the delivery of a 450 seat theatre. Octave Acoustics modelled and finessed the room acoustics of the auditorium using EASE 3-D modelling software. Adjustments to both the room geometry and surface finishes were made to optimise the acoustic characteristics of the space to satisfy the School’s exacting requirements. Results of testing demonstrated that as-built performance was consistent with modelling and design expectations.

Hotel & Serviced Apartments

Oakwood, Southbank

Oakwood, Southbank in Melbourne is a 40-story luxe hotel. Octave Acoustics was engaged to provide comprehensive acoustic consultancy services to all stages of the project. A particular point of interest in our design is the floating acoustic slab installed throughout level 39. This slab protects guest rooms below from significant floor impact and airborne noise generated by the bar and restaurant above.
