By Marianne Wind, expert acoustics at Ahrend
As a lot of people are now working from home, most organisations have fewer people in the office. This affects the sound in the workplace. This time, I answer the question: which sounds do people find the most disruptive? Everyone has their own perception of sound and noise.
Obviously, the louder you speak, the further the sound and speech carry. Therefore it’s always worth considering beforehand what level of speech intelligibility is desirable in a specific space. Don’t forget, either, that the new layout for hybrid working can affect the acoustics. So if you’re going to redesign your office space, always include acoustics in your plans.
