There are three basic types of performance
spaces:

Single purpose rooms

Multipurpose rooms

Rehearsal rooms
Spaces with a focused acoustical function, such
as concert halls, recital halls, and dedicated
lecture rooms, offer a real opportunity for a
client with a limited budget to achieve acoustical
excellence.


Limit the size, exclude background noise, focus
the design around acoustical function, and
excellence acoustics comes well within reach.

Multipurpose performance spaces are often built
to save the money it would entail to build
several dedicated spaces. A school, for instance,
that might be better served by a music recital
hall and a speech theatre, builds one large,
multipurpose auditorium because of cost. The
large, multipurpose performance space is one of
the most difficult acoustical challenges, even
under the best of circumstances.

Rehearsal rooms, unlike most performance spaces, are
usually too small. Sometimes, a music group that is
too large or too loud will simply overwhelm the space.
For these rooms, one needs a combination of sound
absorption and sound-diffusing geometry that makes
the room act like a larger room. Sufficient height is
critical. A rehearsal room that has sound-absorbing
surfaces, but lacks sound-diffusing surfaces will
sound dead and unresponsive and will pose difficulties
for hearing amongst members of an ensemble.
