Restaurant acoustic solutions provide privacy and comfort

Often overlooked in the design of restaurants are the acoustic conditions necessary to provide the relaxing experience people desire. By having an open plan space with hard, reflective surfaces and many people trying to have separate conversations, noise levels can quickly escalate, forcing people to raise their voices in order to be heard.

This is the cocktail party effect. Voices are raised to cut through the already high nose levels and this adds to the problem as voices are raised further to compensate. Acoustical privacy is also compromised by the close vicinity of neighbours and reflective surfaces allowing sound to travel and speech levels.

In order to introduce an ambience where communication is suitably relaxed and the people sitting nearby aren’t hearing other people’s conversations, careful layout design and material choice is necessary. Individual booths would solve this problem but not every owner wants this. The use of sound absorption materials can drastically reduce the reverberant sound to combat these problems.
