Architects Tennent Brown invited Asona to develop a solution to control the reverberation and span the vast interior ceiling spaces of the new Nga Purapura complex in Otaki.
Incorporating two indoor sports courts, a cardio and resistance gym, nutrition training kitchen, classrooms, administration and academic offices, the scale of the areas would dwarf any standard ceiling panel so Asona developed and manufactured over-sized Triton 40 Sports ceiling panels (2500x1200mm) with a top-hat fixing to create a negative edge detail between the panels which breaks up the uniformity.
In the foyer with its Nohopuku (reflective space) and the classrooms, administration and academic offices, Triton 25 large module ceiling panels were used to ensure the acoustic levels are kept in check whilst being sympathetic to the over-all look & feel of the development.
