The last reconstruction of the Lithuanian National Drama Theatre took place in 1981 when architects Vytautas and Algimantas Nasvyčiai renovated the theater. Over the course of 40 years, there have been several changes – building repairs were carried out, engineering systems were replaced, newer stage equipment was acquired, but a fundamental overhaul of the theater was lacking.
The need for acoustic comfort has grown alongside acoustic building regulations. However, according to Viktoras Mekas, an acoustic expert from the company “Akustika plius,” consumers still do not fully understand what it is – often confusing it with the energy efficiency class of a building or not distinguishing between room acoustics and sound insulation.
Where sound and architecture meet, culture begins. Productions are staged, and music is performed. There are even more opportunities to immerse, communicate, and spread one’s understanding of perceiving the environment around us. The new space in the Polish Cultural House – the main event hall – is another testament to how important it is to have a high-quality and aesthetically pleasing environment for creativity. We are grateful for being invited. The “Akustika plius” team was delighted to design sound insulation, architectural acoustics, and interior for it.
In this busy world, one is constantly looking for comfort, and good acoustics is one of the key components of comfort. When it is good, we do not notice it, but in the case of poor acoustics, it immediately affects our well-being.
