Metro Centre Gateshead Bowling Alley, Namco
With creative thinking, superb knowledge and precise handling of materials, the
Inscape team has provided a stunning finish for a lively bowling alley in Metro
Inscape were involved in recommending materials and advice on shaping for the
contractors. The use of both translucent and gloss membranes achieved the vibrant
atmosphere that was desired.
We installed modular floating curved panels above the bowling lanes, and square
panels above the seating area. All panels were individually made to measure and
numbered for easy maintenance and renewal, and create an exciting effect that adds
value and originality to the space.
Our team are very experienced in working with a variety of materials and navigating
the challenges they bring to the installation of stretch ceilings. The orange gloss
square panels above the seating area were installed with a light structure that
incorporated already existing fire sprinklers and lights. The membranes were
specifically made to fit around the protruding lights, again creating a
multi-dimensional visual effect. The ability to shape stretch ceilings into any
space shows the versatility of these ceilings and the craftsmanship of our team.
We were also involved in installing translucent membranes over LED lighting with a
changing colour effect above the gaming area of the bowling alley creating a lit
walkway for a modern and engaging experience.
This project is a perfect example of the expertise, skill and commitment which
Inscape apply to all their work, and the use of stretch ceilings and panels in this
area shows the enormous potential for stretch ceilings to create a unique and
stimulating atmosphere in any venue.
