Challenge

Formerly the headquarters for SHURE microphones, this building’s low ceilings, structural pillars and room geometry proved a unique acoustic challenge.

Solution

During the design phase our acoustic model identified a significant number of flutter echoes but the acoustic treatment needed to eliminate these echoes was very expensive.

Having exhausted all the traditional treatment options, a unique and inexpensive wall design proved to eliminate the echoes.

With a good acoustic foundation, a warm and intimate space to worship is inviting to all.
