"Our school has existed since 1937, so the building is already old. In addition, with reforms, it turned out that there is not enough space in the facility to accommodate all the students. The school's headmaster, Mr. Tadeusz Badowski, decided to expand on the school." Anna Jedut – Wnuk, teacher in Primary School No. 46 in Poznan. 
The project to build an addition to the primary school no. 46 is the result of the rapid pace of investment. With only six months to complete the whole project, prefabricated reinforced concrete walls and ceilings were used. Due to the necessity of eliminating wet works and for aesthetic reasonsit was decided to leave the raw walls and reinforced concrete ceilings without plastering. This decision directly influenced the need to use interior design solutions to create a comfortable acoustic environment, especially in the classrooms. The expanded wing has been designed to meet the acoustic requirements of the current school norm in Poland - PN-B 02151. 
We wanted to create a comfortable working environment for teachers and learning for pupils. In addition to acoustic values, the panels are a great arrangement tool for the interior, in our project they perfectly complement the rawness of concrete surfaces through soft forms and colour complementation.” says Marcin Sakson, Architect at Front Architects.

I teach lessons in both - the old and the new school wing. The difference in room acoustics is clear. In the new wing you can better hear what I'm saying to the students. My voice is simply better pronounced. When I teach there, I feel calmer and I am less tired.  The same with my students. Thanks to this, learning goes more smoothly.
