The hearing ability of people defines spatial meaning and behaviour. Light and sound are important factors of room quality. Creative room acoustics describes the symbiosis of physical acoustics and the design of acoustic room situations. Integrated acoustic design places the needs of people at the centre of room design and derives an innovative design philosophy from the diverse interaction and interplay between people and space, in which acoustic design plays a decisive role.
“Design what can be heard!”
“Tuning the room!”
In addition to the physical and calculable factors of interior design, it is the quality of hearing and sound in particular, along with other perceptual qualities, that lends the atmosphere in the room unmistakability and unique selling points.
Based on the fundamentals of the physical building and room acoustics, aspects of acoustic and sound quality together with psycho- and socio-acoustic findings give the design process an original character, combined with the aim of creating a humane interior design.
The symbiosis of planning and design quality in interior design, as well as of theory and practical application of acoustic design. Philosophical aspects of “time” and “movement” find considerable importance with the catalyst “acoustic design” as an integrative part of the design process for a humane environment.
Room acoustic design as part of an overall design concept. Approaches for research into the connections between perception, affect and behaviour of people in space
