Aberdeen University Library
ACOUSTIC DESIGN REVIEW
Aberdeen University Library is a stunning building, enhanced with a swirling, round atrium cutting its way up through to the 7th floor of the building. On the ground floor of the building is a cafe, an art gallery, as well as a reception space. The architecture of this building is an important feature, it’s style is modern and some what minimalistic and is predominantly finished with hard and reflective surfaces on the ground floor.
MACH Acoustics approach has included visiting the library in order to understand how the building is used. During the visit a survey of the existing acoustic conditions was undertaken, as well as interaction with the users to fully understand any issues that may affect the performance of the building as a library.
