The Challenge:

To create a comfortable environment that allows for simultaneous use of quiet study areas and collaborative spaces, catering to the needs of today’s students.

The Innovation:

When The University of Toronto Robarts Library underwent a renovation of its Reading Room, the existing space was converted into a serene study area with private consultation rooms for collaboration. The spacious double-height room is an open learning space, with a room acoustic design that incorporates high-performance perforated wood and metal acoustic paneling. Working with Superkül, Aercoustics’ services was instrumental in ensuring that the design not only met performance targets but also complemented the library’s existing architecture.
