Byron Burgers is an American-inspired diner featuring posh hamburgers with unique toppings, seasonal sides, and fresh salads. The popular chain has numerous locations across the United Kingdom, including its newest location in Manchester, England in the heart of the lively Piccadilly Gardens neighborhood. To ensure this location would serve as an enjoyable environment for diners acoustical consideration was essential in the design process.
To address the need for acoustical control without compromising the striking interior design, which features bold checkerboard tile flooring, wood furnishings, industrial accents, and exposed ductwork, K-13 in Black was utilized for the exposed ceiling. Unlike hard surfaces and materials, which reflect sound, the application of K-13 absorbs echo, reverberation, and excessive noise which would otherwise be prevalent due to the numerous hard surfaces throughout the space. In addition to acoustic performance, K-13 in Black compliments the unique design and provides a bold backdrop for the exposed ductwork, and suspended lighting.
