1. Sound clarity can be more effective in a space that absorbs sound. Partial absorption of external sound in comfortable / permanent areas can be applied to create collective spaces and areas for speech purposes.

2. Intimacy is supported by absorbing surfaces inside a space.

3. A room with constant reflection is relatively more disturbing than a room with constant absorption. Areas with with higher reflectivity can only be transitional.

4. Disturbing frequencies in normal conditions, are attenuated and more tolerable in a anechoic chamber.

5. Because of the lack of background noise in the anechoic chamber, its possible to perceive the blood pressure pounding in the ears, which is similar to an "after concert" ringing. Ambient noise does not translate directly into annoyance

6. In both extreme conditions it is difficult to estimate the features of a space. That is why these extreme situations will not be implemented in our project. orientation, flow, and transition are very important. In the anechoic chamber you are able to determine the angle, but not the distance of the source, regardless of light conditions.

7. Disturbance by noise is relative to immediate previous experience, this was seen after leaving the anechoic chamber, the initially ordinary level of sound in the transitional space that proceeded the chamber, was a welcomed relief after the experiment was completed, therfore . Similar spaces / experiences should not be adjacent.

8. Density plays a crucial role in the acoustics of a material, proving that thinner surfaces can be more effective in absorption than thicker and heavier ones.

9. Apart from the tilting and the quality of the materials, the absorbing corner played an important roll on the experiment; by allowing the evaluator to focus on the source clarity and not reflections from behind, the experience is much more interesting and noticeable.
