If you have an idea, let us make it happen.
A feat of innovative design and out-of-the-box thinking, the Mediaworks building tells the story of radio—a medium rich in history and soul—through a brave, game-changing fitout. The Autex design team worked alongside architects Warren and Mahoney to create three bold, custom, acoustic sculpture walls for the common areas, and high-performance treatment for the studios.
The finished piece plays with light and shadow, emulating the wobbling pulse of a speaker cone in the throes of a gig. Made from custom, khaki coloured 12 mm Cube, the beats wall contrasts the crimson (noise) and mustard (anechoic) walls with a touch of biophilic design. While solid in appearance, it was constructed to leave a small air gap between the Cube cladding and the wall behind—maximising the range of frequencies absorbed and contributing to the STC of the pod walls. On sight, the wall offers respite from the high energy world of radio, mesmerising in sheer size and gentle swell.
