Mixed Use

Acoustics By Design was brought in by Loewenberg Architects to offer acoustical consulting and noise isolation for Aqua, a new 82-story sky scraper in the heart of Chicago, Illinois. This mixed-use development houses residential condominiums, apartments, and parking space as well as a hotel, fitness center, and movie theatre. Sound isolation between units was a crucial factor for long term success.

Our professional engineers used 3D computer modeling software to thoroughly analyze and predict the acoustical attributes of the spaces. Before ground breaking, we made recommendations for construction features that would provide an appropriate amount of noise isolation between spaces. Our nal report offered straight forward solutions for the complex acoustical challenges, and enabled Aqua to offer all the amenities of a classy, mixed-use development.
