A new student hub at Victoria University required an acoustic, timber veneered wall panelling with concealed fixings that could also be curved.


Cox Architecture’s challenging list of requirements could only be satisfied with Atkar’s Au.diGroove timber veneer wall panelling. A full scale section prototype, provided by Atkar, demonstrated the product’s ability to achieve an extreme radius of 1000mm. Cox also requested a specific American Walnut colour – selected after a thorough analysis of the comprehensive sample range provided by Atkar. Au.diPanel screens in white laminate were also installed to exacting dimensions to deliver a total project outcome that was well Beyond Expectations.
