The entry space on the ground floor features double height ceilings with our Au.diSlat Tasmanian Oak solid timber on the ceiling. It makes for a striking feature with the acoustic benefits needed for a busy space. Strip LED lighting enhance the linear feature of this product. This entry is accessible by all employees and the general public, so it was imperative that it had high acoustic performance.

“The Ballarat GovHub is creating a new home for skilled workers who will make a great contribution to this city.”
