The modern workspace is increasingly open, collaborative, and tech-driven. Despite the positive effects of this development, one negative outcome has been that its occupants are often stressed and distracted by excessive noise and a lack of privacy. The latest BAUX inspiration series covers a range of work and study spaces designed to promote creativity and collaboration without compromising privacy and focus.
Dedicated focus spaces can be designed to accommodate private meetings, phone calls and concentrated work. Acoustic booths present a popular balance between collaborative open environments and private quiet areas. The application of acoustic wood wool panels and tiles minimises distracting echoes for a calmer and quieter space, and gives visual clues as to its function.
Larger areas for intensive collaborative work also require acoustic solutions to ensure a focused and effective environment. Being able to hear each other speak is extremely important for teamwork, suggesting the need for better acoustic environments when dedicated meeting rooms are not always available.
Making phone calls in an open office is rarely ideal; as a result, many companies install “telephone booths” for private conversations. Small acoustic telephone booths can be used to create a sense of privacy and separation from the main working area, as well as providing an interesting aesthetic feature to the space. Creative options abound when it comes to choosing colours and form.
Customer-facing spaces such as lounges and reception areas are often a hotbed of activity, and a result, generate large amounts of noise. To make customers feel at ease, it is important to impart a sense of calm rather than chaos. The popularity of minimal design has inadvertently created a plethora of spaces with sound-reflective surfaces and little in the way of furniture to absorb and diffuse noise. Unobtrusive acoustic panels and tiles can be installed to remedy this common issue, without radically changing the desired visual aesthetic.
