Russwood’s Fired Spruce Wall Cladding adds a stunning dimension to the clean modern lines of the new flagship auditorium at the Duncan of Jordonstone College of Art, Dundee.

The 106-seat multi-disciplinary learning space with cinema capability came with a challenging brief – to achieve acoustic absorption, the durability to cope with high traffic, and a warm but contemporary appearance. With its attractive natural finish and grain definition, Russwood's Fired Spruce fit the bill. The thermal treatment of the Spruce cladding brings out a beautiful caramel colour in the wood and adds texture and style to the more functional, high-tech elements of the auditorium, which features a continuous folding ceiling with uninterrupted LEDs, state-of-the art seating and excellent acoustic properties. With thermal treatment at 212 degrees centigrade, the cladding delivers impressive dimensional stability.

Designed by James Paul Associates and built by Morrison Construction, the new space is an ideal learning environment for film and architecture students and has won praise from throughout the faculty. The client credited Russwood with having supported the project every step of the way:

“The expertise received from Russwood was excellent from the design inception stage through to construction. The team members we dealt with had a comprehensive working knowledge of the cladding products as well as finishes. Communication was always very good, and helped us deliver the project effectively.”
