Delhom Acoustique had the chance to work on the renovation of the legendary Parisian performance hall located at the heart of Paris: The Bataclan!


Our goal in this project was to improve the sound quality within the concert area (reverberation) without changing the ancestral design. Our acoustic engineers also reduced the noise impact coming from outside the venue (nearby roads).


This world-famous music institution was initially designed by architect Charles Duval in 1864. Today, architects A7 Ingénierie, whom we closely worked with, managed the building revamp while remaining faithful to the original spirit of the theater, its authenticity, layout and its imposing dimensions!


The whole renovation work was completed in November 2016.
