"We did some research, and really liked the idea of using metal fabric. After looking at a number of sources of the material, we chose to include Cambridge in the specifications because their product aesthetically worked well and met our technical requirements. Cambridge worked with us to answer all of our questions. Eventually, they provided us with a full-size mock-up which showed exactly how to install the system, and in the end it came out really well."

A Cambridge architectural mesh ceiling system provides a first-of-its-kind aesthetic for the lobby of the Louisiana State University (LSU) Student Union Theater in Baton Rouge, LA. Beautiful draping canopy-like curves sculpt the ceiling space for a clean and modern look. At the same time, the system smartly divides overhead lighting fixtures for a strikingly symmetrical visual appeal. The mesh brightens up the formerly dark space and the delicate nature of the fabric assures that the draped ceiling is comforting, not oppressive.


Chosen in part for its flexible design, the architectural mesh system expertly hides the Theater lobby's structural elements like ductwork, plumbing and wiring, blending its beauty with important functional characteristics. This application dramatically defines and separates the overhead space, while additionally providing visibility, light and air flow to the facility.


Cambridge Architectural’s applications combine premium aesthetics with high-quality performance, eliminating the need for additional interior materials. In the LSU Student Union Theater lobby, the sheer durability and lifecycle of architectural mesh greatly reduces maintenance costs, and assures that there will be no need for replacement materials. Cambridge's metal fabric ceiling panels were expertly engineered to fit the ceiling system, ensuring a successful and issue-free installation.

Cambridge Architectural is an active member of the USGBC®, and helps architects take maximum advantage of LEED credit through the many categories in which architectural mesh systems apply.
