We are spending more and more time indoors. The quality of indoor environments is important for our well-being. Another important aspect is the sound environment, which affects us in many different ways.
In some indoor environments, appearance and design are also important in addition to a good sound environment. Offices, corridors, lobbies, reception areas, assembly halls, and conference and meeting rooms are a few examples. The sound environment should be adapted to the business being conducted or work being done, but the visual impression is also important.
It is an art form in itself to create an environment that is pleasant from a sound perspective, but this absolutely does not have to be at the expense of aesthetics.
