Acoustical Experience: Libraries

  • Library Acoustics

About This Project

Room acoustics, sound isolation between spaces, and control of noise from building services are all important design parameters for any library. Audio/Visual systems are also becoming an integral part of any modern library. The firm’s experience includes the acoustical design of many library buildings plus numerous libraries contained within larger facilities.

A partial listing of previous experience is presented below:
