Designing for Wellbeing

#HealthyArchitecture

#HealthyArchitecture is a commitment to promoting health, wellbeing, and comfort in design. Through the continued innovation of sound absorbing products, BASWA acoustic commits to improving long-term occupant health and wellbeing.

Remedying excessively reverberant spaces prevents the negative effects noise has on human health. Extensive research shows that sound levels of 85 dB or greater are detrimental to human health and not only cause hearing loss, but over an extended period of exposure can also cause elevated blood pressure, loss of sleep, increased heart rate, cardiovascular constriction, and reduced productivity. By decreasing noise pollution in everyday environments such as restaurants, residences, museums, educational institutions, and corporate offices, designers can positively influence healthy living.

#HealthyArchitecture has the power to amplify lives.

“YOU WANT TO AMPLIFY THE GOOD NOISE AND REDUCE THE BAD NOISE.

BAD NOISE IS THAT TINNY, HIGH-PITCHED SQUALL THAT CAN WHIP THROUGH A RESTAURANT LIKE A FLOCK OF CROWS.”

From the outside, Untitled looks like one of those places where intimate
conversation gets lost in the din.

The restaurant, which anchors the architect Renzo Piano’s new home for the Whitney Museum of American Art in the meatpacking district, has all the makings of a cacophony box. The primary walls are glass. That back wall is concrete. The floors? Blue Catalan limestone. The cooks chop and sear in an open kitchen, and the tables don’t have tablecloths.
