Made for human interaction

Reception or lobby should invite to conversation. It is the first meeting spot for visitants when arriving at your office. The first step to a successful business meeting or maybe even a doctors appointment is to make sure the area feels relaxed and comforting. The talks in this part of the office set the tone for the rest of the business relationship.

Have a strategy

Regardless of function, one of the fundamentals is to make a statement for your brand or organization. Start early and design to support collaboration and inviting. What is the purpose of this environment? What are your clients or your visitors and do you want to interact with them? Use different acoustic treatment options that correspond well with your colour scheme and furnishing. Cover distractions as much as possible and enable the perfect acoustical environment!
