Murtha Cullina {Acoustical Solutions}


Murtha Cullina engaged our experts to help solve a horrific acoustical problem in a new satellite office within an incubator space. This unique complex is a repurposed factory space and Murtha took a suite to be a part of this incredible new ecosystem of young emerging companies so they may offer their legal expertise. Our challenge with this cool industrial space was to resolve the reflectivity of the surfaces, add speech privacy for the attorneys within the offices and meeting rooms and do so in a creative manner that added some unique drama to the site. Oh yeah, and do it cost effectively. No prob!

After determining the acoustical issues and developing a solution, we then got to work on the fun stuff!  Making it look cool! Our palate for this space included our own, Soundlite Interscape Shapes acoustical hanging baffles, ezoBord acoustical hexagonal wall tiles and the Cambridge QT speech privacy system. Collectively these solutions will work in harmony to resolve the clients wish list.

These super high performing, large hanging baffles were custom made for the site. They were installed to not interfere with the existing utilities by creating a wave to dip below the existing HVAC but to also add movement and visual interest. The wave also helps cover more area acoustically. “Is that a Murtha “M”!!!??

The large bare span of the rear wall received a unique application of hexagon wall tiles that dance the length of the wall and add movement and life while introducing additional and necessary absorption of ambient sound.

The Cambridge QT sound masking system was added throughout to offer levels of confidentiality from office to open plan and conference spaces as well as conference space to open plan. Additionally it creates a better overall experience and wellbeing while in the suite. It resolves distractions from adjacent suites and even noise generated in the corridor. 

Interscape Commercial Environments takes a holistic approach to the learning and work environments. Listening and understanding our clients' needs and expectations is at the forefront of our designs. Offering solutions that envelop the entire environment allows us to create space that works better for our clients so they can do more.

Home Office Happiness

Where my Homies at??!!! My work from Homies that is. We can help! What a great way to start the week, having a client share pics of their new home office provided and installed by Interscape Commercial Environments. When Bryon Kamay of the Knights of Columbus contacted us for a new home office, we were anxious to assist.  Since Covid hit, Mr. Kamay has worked nearly 100% remotely.  As he puts it, “I have been bouncing around the house, attempting to work in every nook and cranny there is, all while dodging two distant learning boys and a wife with a home photography business. I spend most of the day on audio and video calls with colleagues and partners around the country in space not conducive to doing so. My environment was not allowing me to do my job efficiently and it was taking it’s toll on my overall wellbeing.” Kamay’s requirements for his home office were having a dedicated office space, great acoustical isolation, proper ergonomics and a great value.  Challenge accepted!

Setting Up an Efficient Home Office

Whether you are a remote employee or working from home temporarily because of the coronavirus pandemic, here are a few essentials to stay comfortable and productive and keeping the importance of ergonomics in mind! Sitting all day is not beneficial for your physical and mental well-being whether you are working from home or in the office. Working from your couch or in bed may seem convenient or more comfortable but in the long run, it puts you in the wrong mental state and will negatively impact productivity. There are a lot of options for height-adjustable desking that allows you to sit/stand throughout the day and Teknion has various options like the Emote, hiSpace or the Navigate. Seating is just as important as your desking for an efficient home office so take the time to select and invest in a comfortable chair; ergonomics and comfort count when it comes to sitting. We have endless options: Contessa, Sabrina and the Projek office chairs and for a quick, cost-effective opt
