Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Saudi Arabia

This Auditorium, at the Heart of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs building in Saudi Arabia is clad with Woodfit perforated and plain panels.

Woodfit, in association with local partner Khaldia Hallstage provided natural birch veneered panelling in custom diamond formations. The cladding combined both perforated and plain panels to meet the specified acoustic requirements while the designers employed LED lighting strips concealed behind select raised panels, to dramatic effect.
