Building acoustics are a consideration for any space that will be occupied. The way that people interact with a space, and their subjective impression of it, can vary widely based on the architectural acoustic design. Achieving suitable reservation times and internal noise levels is essential. Whether for maintaining an environment suitable for communication, or creating a space that will enhance the performance of a piece of music.
