I was told by a colleague who had designed a hotel which then had its interior designed by a London firm of hotel specialists . . .
Can you elaborate a bit more on this please ?
I just do not buy the idea that interior designers would have the technical competence in acoustics to manage a task like this by themselves.
So who – if anyone – did this side of the interior ?
We see several major consulting engineers firms offering acoustic engineering capability.
But I doubt if this is really offered to mundane projects like hotels and small banks – seems more of a de luxe offering to prestige projects like opera houses.
So I’m inclined to think that the hotel specialists are doing it themselves, if it’s done at all.
Personally, I wouldn’t be surprised if the whole idea of noisy interiors suggesting a busy establishment to attact biddable patrons is nothing more than post-hoc humbug to conceal professional incompetence and socially cynical marketing.
