To reduce the noise levels for staff and visitors of the Grade II-listed Bishopsgate Institute in London, canopies from Armstrong Ceilings have been used on the ceilings and more unusually, the walls. Around 150 of Armstrong’s mineral Optima and Ultima canopies, in a variety of shapes and sizes were specified by Sheppard Architects for the reception area, stairwells, corridors, side rooms and Great Hall. For the latter, Armstrong worked with the architects, acoustic consultants and installers to adapt the Optima canopies to hang vertically from the walls.
