Blurring the lines between residential and office

With the power shift to tenants, the demand for technology and acoustical perfection is real.

In residential complexes, including hi-rise and small multiunit projects, acoustical engineering and technology design has a significant impact on the success of the overall project.

Acoustical separation in horizontal and vertical directions is of major importance. Also, because people expect to have quiet apartments, the control of noise generated by mechanical, electrical, elevator, and plumbing systems is in demand. The major goal is to isolate residents from noise made by their neighbors in the building, as well as the noise and vibration from the building systems. It is also important to control noise generated by outdoor sources such as subways, highways, railways, and air traffic.

With an escalating apartment amenity arms race, technology and isolated acoustics will win out.

Currently, over 70% of people would prefer a hybrid of the in-office and at-home work models, provided they have the conducive environment that would require:

  • Resilient and progressive AV/IT infrastructure that bring corporate and hospitality elements into residential buildings.
  • New standards and design considerations within residences for enhanced privacy and room acoustics to bridge the in-office and at-home environments.
  • Flexible amenity spaces supported by robust, intuitive and seamless technologies.
