More or less all my time I have worked with the senses. When we think about senses, our thoughts usually go first to the sense of taste, where my focus has been until today. When I stepped into Ecophon for the first time, I also "opened my ears". I began to react both to how I perceived what I wanted to hear, but above all to what I no longer heard.
Hearing is there in the subconscious, but most often we forget to take it into consideration in daily life. We react directly to the temperature in the room and change it if needed. The sound is also there, but it is usually when it is negative that we talk about it and leave the rooms without being able to influence it.
I think we all can remember the noise level in the corridor or classrooms from our time in school, the voices bouncing between the walls and the teacher's sometimes valiant attempt to make himself heard. Any sound that was not always wanted became noise to the ears.
A good sound environment and acoustics in the school is not always something you can take for granted neither for the students nor the staff.
A good sound environment and acoustics in the school is not always something you can take for granted neither for the student nor the staff. Here, you must actively create space for it, a work environment that is sustainable and stimulating to learn and work in. In my role as a concept developer for good acoustics in the school world, I look forward to increasing the knowledge so that it becomes as obvious with a pleasant sound environment as, for example, the right temperature in the school.
I hope we hear out there!
