The long-awaited extension of ‘MK Gallery’ in Milton Keynes, opened its doors to the public at the weekend after being hailed as “an architectural gem” by national media.
Designed by two artists in collaboration with London architects 6a, the £12m extension includes five new exhibition galleries and a Sky Room auditorium, acoustically isolated using the Farrat CineFLOOR PRO acoustic floating floor system, which was installed by AcouStruct Ltd.
The Sky Room auditorium is housed in a new building for MK Gallery, which is located at the top end of Midsummer Boulevard where the city meets Campbell Park, establishing the centre of a new arts quarter.
The auditorium will be used for film, performance, lectures and large screenings with a sizable audience capacity, accommodated by sliding bleachers.
Farrat has designed and delivered acoustic isolation solutions for many of the world’s largest and most striking multiplex cinema projects and the Building Acoustics team at Farrat has decades of experience creating state-of-the-art acoustic environments within cinemas.
