Oscar Acoustics’ new super smooth Oscar Elite acoustic plaster was selected by Audrey Lovelock for her Grand Designs project in Holland Park to control echo within the main double height kitchen and dining area.
Audrey, having selected hard minimal surfaces like marble floors and plastered walls, knew that echo in the space was going to be an issue. After researching, Oscar Elite acoustic plaster was selected for its smooth finish appearance and incredible sound absorbing properties, with the added bonus of being able to locally and invisibly repair it, negating the need for expensive pre-handover re-sprays. Oscar Acoustics is also able to work from mobile towers meaning a full bird cage scaffold is not required, saving money and causing as little disruption as possible.
Oscar Acoustics’ experienced in-house operatives installed Oscar Elite directly onto the original concrete soffit at a depth of only 25mm and up the vertical faces into the feature light lantern. The end result was a flat white finish, smoother than most conventional plastered and painted finishes, which made this potential sonic battle ground a relaxing and comfortable place in which to spend time.
Audrey and Jeff Lovelock are extremely happy with the acoustic result and the comprehensive service received by our technical department, project management and installation teams.
