St Gabriel’s church Poway, CA
Hyndman & Hyndman Architecture vision for St. Gabriel’s Roman Catholic Church in Poway, California was old world Spanish mission style, while satisfying requirements for green construction and sound control. The Fellert Ultra acoustical plaster system supplied by Fellert North America and Calply was chosen to realize this vision. The ceiling had to be monolithic and finished to look like traditional plaster, but functional enough to absorb the right level of sound to maximize speech intelligibility and enhance the music. This required a high degree of craftsmanship and care on the part of the contractor, The Brady Company/ San Diego.
