The old glazed white brick found throughout the namesake building of The Old Bakery Beer Company and the dramatic high ceilings were part of its charm. But when they were combined with concrete floors and ceilings and cavernous spaces and traffic noise from a busy nearby freeway, they created a serious problem. It could be difficult for just two people standing in the raw space to have a conversation. The design plan emphasized the heritage and features of the building. Site visits and testing by representatives from Tectum Inc. made it clear that a large amount of acoustical panels were required to bring the reverb and echo to acceptable levels The plan called for two spaces that would need to function as both one large zone and as two separate sound zones. It was critical to the business plan that patrons, employees and performers be able to be heard and understood. Find out more about how these challenges were addressed in the upcoming issue of Retrofit magazine. See Job Profile 126 for further information.
