Not just a showroom for these fabulous musical instruments but also a performance studio requiring great attention to acoustics. Fortunately my work experience during my final year of study was at Sandy Brown Associates now one of the world's largest acoustic consultancies, mentored by co-founder David Binns.
The detail of a glazed acoustic screen dividing the main display floor of the Steinway London showroom. The double glazed screen incorporates toughened glass full height panels and to greatly reduce sound transmission the glasses are of a different thickness to stop sympathetic vibration. Detail really does matter.
