Is this a sound absorbing element in my new house?!


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

I'm buying a new house, and it's a very open house where I could imagine sound travel would be a real concern. I'm wondering if this big wood piece against the back half wall with about 8 inches of open space behind it does anything for acoustics, or if it's just some sort of art or design element. Strange but kind of cool thing to find in a house. It will stay either way, I'm just curious if there's any function to it.

Mostly a visual design element, but probably causes some diffusion by being there. No reason to remove the panel if you like it.

Could that be where the dartboard goes?  

 

Also, very interesting floor plan.  With a brand new house, would the builder know the function, if any, of the wooden panel?
