The faceted mantle integrates lighting, ventilation and acoustic attenuation into a singular, dramatic, metal surface, grafted onto the existing structure. The air-conditioning and distribution systems support multi-functional modes and a range of occupancy numbers. The lighting control system can transform the mood according to the event or performance requirements. Parametric modeling underpinned the design process, realised through digital fabrication and CAD/CAM.
