Architectural acoustic design is an applied art, as it involves a number of factors which need to be balanced. In most cases these factors are a combination of the Client's aspirations, the Architect's point of view, the laws of acoustics, the current Guidances and the expected interior soundscape.

Our objective in the acoustic design of a space is simple: Create an excellent acoustic identity by bespoke acoustic advice.

Acoustic Advice

 

Our approach is robust and does not leave any room for errors. Its principles are the following:

  • In-depth knowledge of acoustic materials, construction systems and Regulations
  • Thorough understanding of the desired character of the space
  • Provision of cost-effective and practical solutions

Architectural Acoustics

We strongly believe that communication among the members of the design team members is essential. For this reason we can undertake site inspections where construction options will be discussed and solutions will be provided in full accordance with the project's aims.

Acoustic detailing

Areas of architectural acoustic design that we always focus depending on the project are the following:

  • Specification of External Building Fabric (glazed and non-glazed) in order to minimise noise break-in, or break-out
  • Acoustic design review of Internal Building Fabric for privacy and overall acoustic quality
  • Design of soundscapes for demanding environments (e.g. yachts, noise-havens)
  • Investigation of room acoustics for a wide range of environments (recording studios, lounges, commercial spaces, learning spaces, offices)

Soundscape


We specialise in the following sectors of architectural acoustic design

  • High-end residential (new build, or refurbishments)
  • Education
  • Health
  • Commercial
  • Office Spaces

Breeam Acoustics

 

Our design approach takes into account a number of design standards and assessment guidelines such as,

  • Building Regulations Approved Document E
  • Building Bulleting 93 'Acoustic Design of Schools'
  • BS8233 'Sound insulation and noise reduction for buildings - Code of Practice'
  • Robust Details
  • Health Technical Memorandum 08-01
  • British Council for Offices
  • BREEAM
