EF is one of the world’s leading educational companies specialising in language training, educational travel, academic degree programs, and cultural exchange. In the university town of Cambridge, MA the EF Cambridge Café is a calm oasis for relaxation, learning and contemplation.

The cafeteria located on the first floor acts as a multi-function room, used for lunch breaks, social gatherings and meetings. In this project, the architects prioritised good acoustics and extended the walls to the ceiling to reduce sound reflections caused by trays, cutlery and voices.

More surface, fewer problems
Hard surfaces will reflect sound and create echoes and trailing reverb. You can reduce noise levels and sound reflections by increasing acoustically treated surfaces.


Multi-functional area
Make the most out of your space by creating a quiet environment. Cafeterias can be used for all kinds of social interactions – maximise your space’s potential by creating a comfortable acoustic environment.
