Funeral Hall

Czech Republic


Ceilings RIGIFORM s.r.o.

Wood was chosen as a bearing structure for the construction of the funeral hall in Břeclav, the interior is mostly dry construction. Gyptone® Big Curve and Glasroc® F Riflex materials by Rigips dominate the interior of the funeral hall which were used for the construction of panels and ceilings. These materials are interesting since they can be bent into small radii, creating design constructions. At the same time, Gyptone® Big Curve perforated boards have a fundamental influence on spatial acoustics. The new funeral hall currently has a capacity of 120 seats including covered outdoor areas.

Key Achievements

  • Excellent spatial acoustics in the Hall.
  • Final result combines high standards for aesthetics, acoustic comfort, and optimal levels of natural daylight.
  • Throughout the construction there were exceptional cooperation between constructor and Rigips
  • Lighting ramps and curved surface create an outstanding harmony of lights and shadows.
  • Unique use of Rigips flexible boards which enables to fulfill architect’s requirements.

Key Challenges

It was crucial to maintain perfect execution of the curved surfaces. The use of Rigips® gypsum sealants guarantees surface perfection. It requires exceptional craftsmanship to make continuous surfaces, where the interface of individual materials cannot be discerned.
Quality of execution of the ceilings and wall linings were achieved by cooperation between contractor and Regis’s School of dry Lining
Without usage of Rigips® flexible boards it will be impossible to create this outstanding space.
