a co us t i c s o l u t io n s Natural light, oversized windows, high ceilings, glass boxes, open plan spaces are all aesthetically pleasing design choices loved by modern architects and interior designers. However, these beautiful spaces often present acoustic challenges, as noise reverberates, echoes and amplifies off these hard surfaces. Noise can be unwanted sound and we are besieged with accidental and unpleasant sounds on a daily basis. Considering this, sound that is not managed, is interfering with complex task performance, speech intelligibility, behaviour, and is a potential stress inducer. This is therefore contradicting the experiences we want people to have, whether it be in the work place, relaxing in a hotel, recovering in hospital or enjoying your later years in an aged care facility. With the aim to tackle the reflected sound within these commercial space, Materialised offer a variety of solutions, for a harmonious balance of acoustics and aesthetics.
