Architectural Acoustics in Residences for Adults with Mental Retardation and Its Relation to Perceived Homelikeness.
Egli, Mark; Roper, Todd; Feurer, Irene; Thompson, Travis
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v104 n1 p53-66 Jan 1999
Acoustical characteristics of 18 residences for people with mental retardation were evaluated and compared to ratings of room photographs for apparent homelikeness. Reverberation times in living and dining rooms were negatively correlated with mean homelikeness ratings. High reverberation rates were the result of insufficient sound absorption by furnishings.
