Timber ceilings in the Garangula Gallery

Screenwood timber ceiling panels have been employed to produce a natural and timeless aesthetic.

Timber ceilings in the Garangula Gallery


June 22nd, 2014

Screenwood timber ceiling panels have been used at the recent Garangula Gallery project by  Fender Katsalidis Mirams Architects. Their inspired design combines elemental materials such as stone, weathered steel, water and rammed earth. Solid timber balances this natural and  timeless aesthetic and is featured throughout the impressive build.


Gallery ceilings are lined with Screenwood modules made from PEFC certified Hemlock and tinted with a coating customized to correspond with the Tallowwood flooring. The timber however, does not distract from the dramatic Indigenous artworks that line the charcoal coloured walls, but rather add warmth to the rooms and complements the vast painting collection.


Screenwood doubles as a functional lining for areas where echo reduction is important for the amenity of a space with its verified acoustic capabilities – an often overlooked feature in gallery spaces. As the Garangula Gallery can also be transformed into a sprawling dining hall, this acoustic feature becomes vital for comfortable conversation. Used as a modest backdrop as in this application or as a bold visual feature in others, Screenwood is a natural choice as an architectural or acoustic lining.

Available in a variety of profiles and certified timbers, Screenwood meets green star project requirements, is fire and VOC tested and is acoustically rated.
