Seamless cooling ceiling
The Louvre Abu Dhabi was officially opened in November 2017
UAE Lahnau Akustik has built the first and only seamless cooling ceiling made of expanded glass in the United Arab Emirates for the exterior of the Louvre Abu Dhabi.

The Louvre Abu Dhabi was officially opened in November 2017. Paris-based architectural studio Ateliers Jean Nouvel was commissioned to combine modern and traditional Arabian building architecture. More than 50 buildings with flat roofs, narrow paths between and a number of water basins are covered by a translucent metal dome with a diameter of over 180m.

The 13,400 sqm seamless ceiling system from Lahnau Akustik provides the building with much of its cooling as well as soundproofing. Around 1,400 sqm of such ceilings that cool and absorb noise were installed with a further 12,000 sqm of soundproofed ceilings that were not part of the cooling system.

Lahnau Akustik from Germany was responsible for the technical design and installation and they were supported by local partner Finishes DMCC and air conditioning specialist RiLO Systemtechnik. The on-site construction was a collaborative project with an international team from many different countries. The work took around ten years to complete.

Lahnau Akustik is the developer of the Mikropor ceiling system, which contains a large proportion of expanded glass granulate, making it lightweight and waterproof and thermally resistant. The plaster-like material is also easy to apply requiring no special tools and being non-organically bonded it is also non-combustible meeting material class A2. The glass particles are provided by Dennert Poraver and are additionally added to the surface coating.
