Treating a reclaimed space: Tone Tiles®
Posted by Acoustics First in Absorption, Multipurpose Rooms, Product Applications, Restaurants on December 30, 2022
Reclaiming historic spaces and updating them for modern functions is a bit of a balancing act. Often, the aesthetics of the space are tantamount, and should be minimally impacted by the materials and methods used to bring them up to modern standards. Acoustic treatments are no exception, and it is usually best if the materials blend into the space – or at least don’t detract from the overall “vibe.”
When this old factory was converted into a multi-function space with a restaurant and brewery, there were concerns about the build-up of sound. As is often the case, the rustic patina of the concrete and brick surfaces were a focal point in this space, leaving the ceiling as the primary treatment location.
The solution was to install 2″ Tone Tiles® directly to the ceiling. This solution allowed for the sound build-up to be absorbed, while blending into the whitewashed ceiling structure. The rustic charm of the room was maintained, while having a modern, intimate acoustic profile, which is more conducive to gatherings and functions.
