Markideio Theatre – Paphos
Markideio Theatre is the biggest performance hall in Paphos, Cyprus. It can accomodate 420 seating people and is designed to host mainly drama theatre performances. Ioannides Acoustics was appointed as the project’s acoustic consultant tasked design the acoustics of this multipurpose theatre.
Early on in the design stage it was decided that the acoustics of the hall should perfectly serve drama theatre as it would be its main use. It was also decided that unamplified music performances should be accomodated in a satisfactory manner. Thus, an acoustic orchestra shell was designed which makes Markideio one of the very few venues on the island that can accomodate a symphonic orchestra.
The acoustic shell serves as a monitoring element for the musicians but also extends the reverberance of the hall from 0.9 to 1.3 seconds, a quite satisfactory figure for music performances within a drama theatre hall.
