Key-Lena Panels Make Penfolds Magill Estate Winery Sparkle



Designcor provides lining and acoustic solutions to architects, builders, and interior designers looking to finish their projects. They sell acoustic panels and exterior wall cladding suitable for different needs.

Customised acoustic enhancing Key-Lena panels from Keystone have been used to spectacular effect at the Magill Estate Cellar Door project. The panels with custom perforation in Tasmanian Oak and grey wash stain reflect the South Australian coastline and Penfold’s vineyard locations throughout the state.

The Magill Estate Cellar Door, fine dining restaurant and kitchen all offer serene views of Penfolds first vineyard. It’s located just 8kms from Adelaide CBD in the sheltered haunches of the Mounty Lofty Ranges, making it one of the world’s few urban single vineyards. Penfolds is one of Australia’s most celebrated wine brands and the maker of the almost mythical Grange Hermitage.

In 2019, Penfolds celebrated 175 years of incredible winemaking heritage. The highly complex brief saw Keystone work closely with architects Denton Corker Marshall and installers APC from the project’s very conception.

This project is testament that no job is too big or too complex for Keystone. Every panel has been customised and individually perforated and numbered to create a perforated image of the South Australian coast. Representing a giant jigsaw in terms of build, each panel was individually labelled according to its location in the overall design, ensuring absolute precision during installation.

The resulting design not only offers superior acoustics, but in keeping with the contemporary feel of the Cellar Door and its polished concrete floors, the Tasmanian Oak with grey wash stain provides a sleek yet inviting atmosphere for swathes of wine-loving guests who arrive at this iconic Australian winery daily. With an extremely stringent monitoring process during manufacture, Keystone was also able to achieve complete colour consistency across all panels, again overcoming the usual issues that design teams face with substrates staining at different rates and shades.

Key-Lena is an excellent choice for ceiling or wall decorative panels. With an extensive list of pre-finishes available to choose from, Key-Lena opens up the door to creativity by allowing clients to customise colours and finishes for their choice of slotted or perforated sheet styles.

Cost-effective and long lasting, Key-Lena ceiling and wall decorative panels are suitable for a variety of applications, both commercially and residentially. They can give any space a pop of colour with various finishes, or choose timber for a more natural look.

For a unique and modern look, Key-Lena slotted or perforated sheet panels offer a wide range of choices perfect for turning an ordinary space into something special. They can be used for interior walls and ceilings, including feature ceilings and walls, building entrances and foyers, high-impact wall linings in shopping centres, hallways, hotels and clubs, offices, libraries and auditoriums
