Skyfold verticle partition at the Engine Shed

Style Scotland installed a Skyfold operable wall to separate the exhibition space from the auditorium at the Engine Shed, Scotland.

Recently opened, the Engine Shed is Scotland’s dedicated building conservation centre, based in Stirling.

The Engine Shed has been developed to encourage a greater understanding of traditional building materials and skills among the public and construction professionals. It aims to raise standards in conservation of traditional buildings and inspire future generations to continue to care for Scotland’s built heritage.

Working with contractor, ESH Border and architect Reiach & Hall, Style Scotland installed a Skyfold operable wall to quickly separate the exhibition space from the auditorium, allowing educational seminars to be conducted in privacy whilst the rest of the space remains open to the public.

Skyfold, a hugely innovative partitioning solution, is a vertical-rising moveable wall that retracts into the ceiling cavity at the turn of a key, creating an acoustic barrier of up to 59dB Rw.

“We were thrilled to be involved on this project,” said David Louden, Style’s director for Scotland. “As a company based in the hillfoot town of Tillicoultry, we are well aware of how special and unique this visitor centre is for the Scottish people and visiting tourists.

“Skyfold adds ‘wow factor’ to the Engine Shed when visitors see it descend into position, forming the front wall of the auditorium and creating an acoustically private space for audio visual presentations. Once inside, the background noise disappears allowing emersion in the presentation of Scotland’s built heritage.”

In addition to the Skyfold, Style also installed two semi-automatic DORMA moveable walls in both solid and double-glazed variants at the Engine Shed.
