K-array KZ12s installed in Sackler gallery

Arup Associates were commissioned to specify the system requirements for the audio and video features of the gallery.

The Serpentine Gallery in London’s Kensington gardens recently commissioned architect group Zaha Hadid Architects to create the Sackler Gallery, a former gunpowder store built in 1805.

Arup Associates were commissioned to specify the system requirements for the audio and video features of the gallery that could be used for day-to-day announcements, playback, artist visits and accommodate demanding installations with unique audio specifications.

The 10cm-long K-array KZ12s were installed in the two powder rooms where you can view the visiting artists work.

The KZ12s were installed among the beams which are connected to a KKS50 bass array containing four 4” transducers tucked away on a windowsill, out of sight.

The audio installation was managed by Jake Miller from RG Jones. “It was important from Arup’s point of view that the speaker system provided full-range sound – bass response below 100Hz without being obtrusive to the eye,” explains Miller.
