Sensitivity to acoustics is important throughout museum spaces. Gallery environments should be well-tailored to allow a pensive, contemplative environment free of distractions. Ambient noise, room isolation, and quiet mechanical systems should be in harmony with architectural and exhibit design. The soaring volumes that often define lobby areas should be tailored to control excessive sound buildup and prevent cacophonous discord.
Many museums rely upon auditoria to support a range of performance and spoken word events. These require skillful attention to the integration of finishes and technology. Specialty lighting and video / multimedia displays should be crafted to maximize their impact, and work with exhibition design across the sensory spectrum.
We strive to provide a flexible canvas for sight and sound in all of our projects, where many forms of artistic aesthetic may come to life.
