Through the ages, many different places of worship have been created – from flat ceilings of the monastery to lofty ceilings of the Cathedral. Today, many churches are designed in a theatre style to worship, sing and celebrate together. Designing and building the Church in a theatre style allows the space to be more versatile and support more uses than just traditional church services.
Many Church patrons use audio equipment such as microphones to communicate their message, and since COVID times, many Church communities are completing services via video conferences. These changes mean acoustics need to be perfect for the message's clarity.
Traditionally the focal point of a Church design was not acoustics in most instances; acoustics was not a standard component of a build. This means with changes in layout, increased attendance and modernisation in the way messages are delivered, a lot of churches struggle with excess noise and difficulty hearing within their facilities.
Avenue Interior Systems offer a range of acoustic solutions that blend into the surroundings to avoid detracting from the building's beauty or confusing interior design and décor. Options include Calando Panels, Calando One Panels and ECO Wall Tiles.
