Q1. In your experience, do acoustic treatments make a difference?

Massively introducing soft materials into a project doesn’t just enhance the design of a project but they improve the acoustics of the area as well making it a more enjoyable place to be


Q2. Do you think a well-designed acoustic scheme makes people more productive?

Definitely a room with poor acoustics can distract people and break concentration.


Q3. Is aesthetics important i.e. how they look?

Of course if they are brought into the project as part of the interior design they become part of the overall feel and theme and not an ugly add on at the end.


Q4. What do you think the future of acoustics will look like?

Who knows! its evolving all the time, let’s see what creations Agile can come up with in the future.
