Architecture and Design: Tackling noise levels in the healthcare industry

Typically, hospitals are spaces characterised by flat, hard surfaces and long hallways. Although these environments are designed to address needs of infection control, hygiene and washability, they’re certainly not primed for gentle acoustics.

Despite being places in which we seek to care for people and help them get better, hospital architecture has not always been designed with wellbeing in mind. Noise falls under that umbrella and the more it can be managed to comfortable levels, the better care patients can be provided.
