Project Description Resonics were approached by Brixton Brewery to treat some significant echo issues at their Tap Room and bar space in a railway arch in Brixton. Being a repurposed railway arch, the space has open ceilings with exposed brickwork and hard roofing surfaces causing excessive reverberation through the bar. This caused significant discomfort for those occupying the space, and drinkers were unable to hear eachother. Brixton Brewery [...]

Quantock, Somerset

By |2020-10-09T11:17:22+00:00October 26th, 2017|

Project Description This restaurant within Somerset University's campus is replete with tall glass windows, sleek floorboards and an open kitchen and bar. The result was an acoustically uncomfortable environment. To nullify the hard surfaces, we installed a comprehensive acoustic ceiling system using Autex's Quietspace Frontier Baffles. The solution complements the exposed soffit and incorporates pre-existing ceiling services. The result is a significant reduction in noise levels in [...]

Whiteheads Fish & Chips, Hornsea

By |2021-04-08T14:47:24+00:00April 8th, 2021|

Project Description The Problem A popular Fish & Chip shop and restaurant, Whiteheads had no sound absorption before Resonics was contacted. With hard wood flooring and plasterboarding making up the surface finishes in the space, the echo in the space was contributing to already high decibel levels and creating a noisy and harsh environment. The owners also wanted to revamp the dining area visually where possible. The Solution [...]

Heinz, London

Project Description The Problem Heinz's main office in London, located inside the iconic Shard, recently received a full refurbishment. As with any considerate design, acoustics were to play a major role in the refurb. An independent acoustic assessment from Cole Jarman highlighted three spaces within the office that required special acoustic consideration: a telepresence / meeting and the office's break-out and dining space. To facilitate comfortable audio-visual communication in the meeting room - [...]

Project Details The Problem A bustling fish and chips shop in Kent, this small space had no sound absorption before Resonics was contacted. With industrial white tiling and plasterboarding making up the surface finishes in the space, the echo in the shop was contributing to already high decibel levels and creating a noisy and harsh environment. The Solution We isolated a 40 sq/m space above the main service desk [...]

Resonics' assessment of the restaurant found that it had a reverberation time of 2.1 seconds; higher than the recommended time of 1.0 seconds for restaurant environments. The Solution A variety of different solutions taken from [...]

Brasserie Blanc, Beaconsfield

By |2019-12-02T11:57:03+00:00August 21st, 2017|

Project Details The Problem This upmarket French restaurant was receiving consistent complaints from diners about excessive noise in the restaurant, which features a unique large, dome-shaped attached dining area. Beautiful, yet highly noise reflective woodwork decorating the ornate ceiling was compounding the already imperfect sound environment in the large dome. Resonics was contacted to reduce the reverberation time of the room and restore auditory comfort for [...]

By |2020-01-09T14:18:34+00:00January 25th, 2017|

Project Details The Problem A low ceiling and plasterboard walls was creating a clamorous environment at this London restaurant. Resonics was contacted to bring reverberation time down and restore comfort for diners. The Solution We installed a combination of Class A suspended ceiling panels and a discreet acoustic fabric wall providing over 30 sq/m or high performance absorption. The Result The installation brought the reverberation time [...]

Plough Way Cafe, London

By |2019-12-02T15:21:11+00:00January 24th, 2017|

Project Details The Problem Tall ceilings, when matched with acoustic diffusers, can be an acoustical gift. In the case of Plough Way Cafe in London, the tall ceiling had no counterpart diffusers or absorptive materials, owing to its minimalist, modern aesthetic. The result was an uncomfortable acoustic environment for diners, with an uncomfortable echo permeating the space. The Solution To match the vaulted ceiling, we installed sound absorbing [...]
