Context

Sage Gateshead is an international home for acoustic excellence and houses two main stages, a 26-room music education centre, music information resource centre, four bars, brasserie and café.

Work undertaken

Benchmark created all the acoustic panelling for the main spaces.

This architectural joinery commission was extremely complex and took Benchmark three years to complete. The double curved wooden acoustic panelling in both halls was designed, made and fitted. The technological challenges tested the skills of designers and site team to the limit.

Outcome

Ultimately the project was a triumph and acoustically the concert hall is rated among the best in the world.

Benchmark was delighted to win the prestigious Wood Award, Britain’s premier prize for the use of wood in buildings.
