Refurbishment of RMIT’s high profile Swanston Street student reception foyer.


ARM’s brief specified a range of custom perforated patterns for both wall and ceiling solutions to deliver a stunning graphic result while maintaining maximum acoustic performance. An image of Albert Einstein was abstracted across multiple wall panels finished in high gloss white. Atkar’s Integrated Acoustic Backing (IAB) delivered enhanced definition to the pattern which was realised in perforations of alternating diameters. A complete portrait of Einstein formed the centrepiece of the installation. Ceiling panels that featured another ARM designed custom pattern, were stained a vivid red to match the flooring. Atkar’s Au.diMount PS3 and XJ1 concealed fixing systems delivered a streamlined finish to this dynamic, attention demanding project.
