Acoustic Engineering & Sound Design

a team of experts

The experience of sound is central to our experience of places and events. Sound evokes memory and response.

We strive to achieve sound quality. This implies various requirements in different contexts. We aim to reduce unwanted noise where it is distracting. We seek to provide privacy where this is important. We enjoy creating spaces for the enjoyment of performance, whether live, reproduced, amplified or unamplified.

Focusing on the details is important, in product or construction types, in the contractual and project process. We enjoy collaborating and we believe that the integration of technology and architecture is key to successful modern buildings and events.
