Problem: The room was approximately 25? x 18? with 8? ceilings. The walls and ceiling were drywall and the floors were wood.
The owner described the echo in the room as “dizzying” when people spoke and music was played. Her dance students had a hard time understanding her instructions and she would raise her voice in an attempt to be heard more clearly. After an hour of listening to music and speech in the room, the owner and students would suffer from ear fatigue. The owner wanted to “deaden” the room while still leaving space for artwork on the walls.
