Soundproofing In Architecture: Why Is It Important?

You decide to visit the newest, trendy restaurant in town for a lovely date night. But then, as you listen to the conversation of others, combined with the sounds of clinking glass, background music and the bustling kitchen, you can’t help but wonder, “Why didn’t we just stay home?”

It’s the weekend. The kids are off playing downstairs, while you are trying to spend some quality time with your spouse in your room. But how could you? How could you with all the “Yes!”, “I won!”, “No!”, “ARRGH!” exclaimed by your children that you could hear all too clearly?

If you’ve been in either those situations – or perhaps both – you’re not alone.

Chances are soundproofing and acoustics treatment were not considered before the house of your dreams became reality.

Noise control problems are so easy to be taken for granted. However, the two situations above prove all too well that soundproofing solutions need to be customized to fit your specific space and situations. In both Industrial and Residential applications, soundproofing is much easier to implement during the construction phase.

So the next time you’re planning a project, it may be wise to ring Acoustica Projects first. Acoustica Projects is a Sydney-Newcastle based acoustic consulting firm with expertise in all building sectors. Acoustic reports, soundproofing and design.

From the rafters to the floorboards, soundproofing is applicable and necessary in almost any space. Bathroom stalls, apartment complexes, bedrooms and entrance ways may all have different uses, but they all house sound. The reverberations or noise at various decibels carry through ceilings, floors and walls. Depending on the type of building you are working in – commercial, residential or industrial – your strategy for soundproofing may differ. Therefore, we will design and construct the best soundproofing solutions specially tailored for your needs and demands.

A few tips to make the art of architecture more seamless:


COST: Addressing your sound issues during the design and construction phase of your new build or remodel make it more cost-effective.

CONSULT: Soundproofing and Acoustic materials often provide benefits outside of sound control. Utilizing the correct materials can not only solve your sound issues but also add thermal control or aesthetic appeal to your project.

DESIGN CONCEPTS: If your building or remodelling project is complete, you can acoustically treat your space with functional art. Customizable Acoustic Panels add form and function to any décor or Interior design.
