Project Details

The Problem

With a marble floor, exposed services ceiling and no absorptive materials, the acoustic were always going to be poor in this space.

Being a busy restaurant with tables in close proximity, the Lombard Effect (increase in decibel levels due to straining of the voice) was very much in play at Whyte and Brown.

The Solution

Strategically placed Class A acoustic absorbers were installed around the services ceiling. With up to 90% sound absorption and camouflaging with the industrial aesthetic of the ceiling.

The Result

Class A sound absorption panels reduced the reverberation time in the restaurant from 3.2 seconds to 1.1 seconds (the recommended time for a restaurant is between 0.8 and 1.2 seconds) a significant difference in acoustic terms – improving comfort for workers and diners.

The white frost panels blend in well with the already busy ceiling.
