Museum of Contemporary Art

SerbiaSerbiaCompany Name: ALP inženjering

Project description

Since its foundation in 1965, the Museum of Contemporary Art has based its display policy on the representation of the most relevant artists, periods, movements and trends in Yugoslav, Serbia and international art of the 20th century. Furthermore, the Museum held a respectable position on the map of European and international museums of modern and contemporary art, which enabled it to effectively cooperate with relevant foreign museums, galleries, collections, curators and critics. The Museum today stands as an important factor of the cultural and art life of Belgrade and Serbia.

Moisture resistance
Moisture resistant systems with RBI boards and grid ceilings with Casoprano boards in toilets and kitchen.

Suspended ceilings with Rigiton perforated boards 8/18Q.

Key Achievements

  • Besides very good acoustic results, RIGITONE ceilings are main attractive aspect of Museum’s interior design.
  • Achieving a high level of aesthetic details.
  • Good reference for acoustic ceilings.

Key Challenges

The reconstruction took almost 10 years, involving over 7 drylining subcontractors. It was important to organise and harmonise the work. The Rigips team worked hard to synchronize measurements for perforated boards with the acoustic project from 2007. The result is perfect acoustics in exhibition area, achieved with RIGITONE® boards.
