Office space design can be a complex process acoustics is one aspect that is frequently overlooked but can be a major reason for client disappointment. Addressing privacy, as well as distraction, issues are key elements of acoustic design for office interiors. There is no one-fits-all solution and effective acoustic design is comprised of several components. In this webinar, along with an overview of the principles of acoustics, you will learn by example from these real-world projects presented by the designers of the spaces.
