21dB prepares the acoustics for Chez Charles

UAE: High-end catering company Chez Charles recently opened the doors to its very first restaurant, which is located in Dubai Design District (d3). 21dB Acoustic Solutions provided the sound solution, installing an all Genelec system and specifying a seamless acoustic ceiling from STO.

‘We were referred by an old client of ours, The Crystal Group,’ explained Fouad Bechwati, principal at 21dB. ‘Having completed several projects in d3 already, 21dB has built a solid reputation there when it comes to delivering high quality acoustics and audio.’

The venue features very high ceilings and a very large glass façade. This resulted in long reverberation times and therefore poor clarity when 21dB ran acoustic simulation. To solve the problem, the 21dB team suggested the STO seamless acoustic ceiling to the interior designer, AAC Interiors. ‘They wanted a solution that would be completely invisible and would not affect their design,’ recalled Dr Bechwati.

With the ceiling in place, 21dB deployed six Genelec 4030 installation speakers and three 7040 subwoofers in the main dining area. The bar area is covered by five 4040 speakers with a pair of 7060 subwoofers, which are flush mounted in the ceiling. For the outdoor terraces, six M030 studio monitors were provided, while a pair of 8040s serve as DJ monitors. An XTA DP426 processor handles processing for the entire system.

‘The combination of the acoustics achieved by the STO system, coupled with the clean sound of Genelec rendered this as one of the most successful projects ever achieved by 21dB,’ said Dr Bechwati. ‘Everything is so clean, the acoustic and sonic atmosphere is just perfect. The client is extremely happy with the end result.’
