A museum is a place where silence should prevail while being full of people.
Creating an acoustically ideal museum involves looking at Reverberation Time (RT) and the sound level of background noise. People expect certain feelings from different sized rooms, so the Reverberation Time will be longer in a large room compared to that of a smaller room.
These venues are sometimes used as spaces of study, so minimizing distracting sounds is important. Presentations and exhibitions also take place within these spaces, so the ability to communicate must also be supported. Museums are there for us to learn about the past so that we can create a better future, and it is a privilege for us to help create environments that induce learning.
We have worked on the following projects:
- Apartheid Museum
- Hector Peterson Museum
