Sala Cecilia Meireles

Located in the Lapa district, the historical centre of Rio De Janeiro, Sala Cecilia Meireles is Brazil’s premiere venue for piano, chamber and classical music.

Woodfit came to the attention of the project architects due to work we had done on Wexford Opera House and our combination of experience in acoustic fit-out and custom manufacturing to the highest quality.

Woodfit completed interior fit-out of the main concert hall, including uniquely designed ceiling baffles and wall panelling. Acoustic interventions combined deflection, scattering and absorption to create an acoustic soundscape which has received excellent reviews from performers and audience members alike.

Woodfit also provided a custom slatted system for the curved ceiling in the beautifully designed café area.

“What a great hall with wonderful acoustics!! Enjoyed playing there to the full!!”

Roderigo Robles de Medina, Pianist

“When we started the acoustical design of the hall, we knew that finishes would require impeccable work. We were concerned with quality of product, fire resistance, acoustical properties, and above all, capabilities in product engineering / design management……. the experience from Woodfit in the installation and engineering won them the business; experience with shop drawings, orientation for installations and care with fine details.”

“We are very satisfied with the Woodfit’s performance: product and company. Typical site and installation issues were all well resolved for an outstanding finished project.”

José Augusto Nepomuceno, Acústica & Sônica
