Let's first examine what actually happens in a café and what customers are looking for. There's no doubt people are attracted to a café that looks hip and is full, and architects are terrific at making this happen, but unfortunately this can often happen at the expense of a desirable acoustical environment. Lots of glass and concrete has been the trend over the last decade. There are lots of acoustic tricks that can help but I'll save that for another article.
There's nothing worse for acoustics’ than lots of hard flat surfaces. Try to limit these if possible at the planning stage, particularly parallel surfaces that can create multiple reflections. Acoustics are part of an architects’ training but their next job most likely comes from a great photo in a review. Get some acoustic advice early in the design stage from either an experienced pro audio company or, if you have the budget, an acoustics engineer.
