Project Name: Matteo Restaurant.
Location: Double Bay.
Designer: Caroline Choker, ACME&CO
Product Used: Tonkin bamboo.
Story: HoB Commercial were engaged as consultants to advise on natural ceiling cladding as there were too many flat surfaces which created an acoustic issue in the dining areas. The nature of bamboo is bound together in a way which produces a natural, acoustic solution where sound is dissipated and reduces the effect of noise produced in a busy restaurant. In addition, the soft tones of the material created a Mediterranean look and feel and enhanced the existing design.
