Acoustic Comfort Fit For A Five Star Hotel

The French art of living drifts through the Sofitel Frankfurt Opera hotel. The five-star hotel welcomes its guests at the lobby with a gallery floor of stunning architectural brilliance. The reception area, the bar, the ballroom as well as the meeting rooms are all furnished with a sound-absorbing acoustic plaster ceiling created by Vogl Deckensysteme.



Aesthetic ceiling design

Being an essential part of an integral interior design, ceilings must meet the high demands in terms of both aesthetics and acoustics. Modern interior design places increased emphasis on the ceiling concept based on sound-absorbing acoustic plaster ceilings.


The bar, the lobby and the ballroom were furnished with acoustic plaster system panels with a perforated area of 22.9%. Applied to the surface of some 600 m², this ceiling solution enables significant improvement to room acoustics. When opting for this product, project owners can feel confident of a high degree of result reliability. Benefits for the users: quicker and more economical processing renders elaborate spot-filling of screw heads superfluous, and the typical disadvantages of board jointing are now a thing of the past. At the same time, the high degree of perforation takes the acoustic performance in all rooms to perfection.


During the last step of drywall construction works the acoustic plaster is applied. This is how Heiko Loch puts it: "We opted for the decorative machine-applied acoustic plaster Nano SF with a grain size between 0.5 and 0.8 mm. We were deeply impressed by the Vogl system components perfectly matching each other."


Eternal elegance and aesthetic ceiling design mark the appearance of the five-star Sofitel Frankfurt Opera hotel.
