Serpentine curved sound blocking wall in Sierra Accentstone Panels

March 21, 2018

David Solmes of Sonoma Mission Gardens used Sierra Accentstone Panels installed vertically, for this  8’ high by 57’ long CMU wall . The wall was designed to be a gently-arched, serpentine “S” shape. The main goal was sound attenuation to buffer traffic noise from an adjacent roadway. To further mitigate the sound, a water feature was incorporated into the wall. The 3’ wide “sheer descent” was installed in a recessed portion of the wall so that the water feature hardware was flush with face of stone. When not in operation, the water feature is barely noticeable. Water spills from a height of about 4’ disappears into a reservoir that is hidden in a bed of cobblestone. Special engineering and permitting was required. With the gentle curve of the wall, no special cuts were needed.  Up-lighting adds further drama at night.
