Renovation of existing school, including new extension

The requirements for room acoustics in new schools in Norway have been tightened. It was important to adjust to these new requirements when renovating and extending Gausel School, particularly given that the project involved creating a school with very open rooms.

Gyptone Tiles Sixto 60 ceilings were chosen for this project.
