In this beautiful new home in Edegem, our acoustic expert could observe a very large reverberation problem in the living room and the hallway. The entire residence is built around a little patio, resulting in a couple of very large glass areas to be in close proximity to each other. In contemporary architecture, glass is often used, due to its transparency allowing a lot of natural light to enter the room. However, using glass also comes with an adverse effect to a room’s acoustics. The hard, smooth surface accelerates the sound reflections, and isn’t able to reduce the sound level that is experienced. Furthermore, the elegant design of this residence, containing few frills, doesn’t offer much absorption of the superfluous sound waves as well. Our soft absorbing materials were much needed.
