The well-being and indoor quality highly influence the designs, where acoustic plays an important role for the building performance, the environment, and the people.
Add Acoustics as a Design Element to the Interior Canvas
The modern interior designs are no longer solely focusing on visual aesthetics and presentation. With well-being high on the design agenda, the built environment needs to touch all elements and aspects of human life, for example, architectural acoustics.
The sound environment has become a strong player on the architects’ or designers’ board. It doesn’t compromise with visual appeal but works in tandem to create an engaging experience for users, by playing with sounds that make them hear and interact without small disturbances. We’ve all experienced struggling to concentrate in school, the office buzz negatively influences our productivity, or finds it difficult to hear with the room is full of noise distractions. These examples are often where the interior design focus on visual appeal, and not on the acoustics. Since humans spend 90% of our lives indoor, surrounding sound should be the core of our design focus.
The current industrial design trend brings many hard surfaces into the interior design. With concrete walls and flooring, glass walls, and exposed ceilings, these materials simply can’t absorb the sound but simply reverberate it directly back, giving a noisy environment. By using outstanding acoustics, the interior space is in harmony, balancing between visual appeal and sound quality.
Take Control of the Sound in your Interior Design
We’re surrounded by sound and whether you’re in the office, at school, or enjoying a movie in the theatre, you need to feel comfortable. Being able to concentrate, perform, and relax without losing attention is the key in all interior designs nowadays. Our well-being is sensitive and being exposed to excessive noise can lead to high levels of stress, headaches, and influence our sleep.
