Driven by her passion and a fascination for music and sound, Ando has dedicated her studies and professional career to the field of architectural acoustics. As both an acoustician and a scientist, she brings open-mindedness, objectivity, curiosity, and creativity to our projects.
With eight years of experience as an acoustic consultant, first at Buro Happold Engineers and most recently at building consultants, Peutz Group, Ando has led the acoustic design of many performing arts venues such as the Maison des Arts et de la Culture, (Epinay sous- Sénart, France), La Vapeur (Dijon, France), and the Poppodium Hedon, (Zwolle, Netherlands). She has also been in charge of the acoustic design of a number of public spaces including the Grand Museum of Egypt, (Cairo, Egypt), the Glasgow Museum of Transports, (Glasgow, UK), and the EU Residence Palace (Brussels, Belgium). Ando spent two years as a postgraduate student and three years in applied scientific research focusing on computational acoustics, architectural acoustic topics, and sound diffusers.
Ando has contributed to technical papers such as The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America and has presented her work at several conferences including the International Conference on Acoustics and INTERNOISE. Ando received her Professional Doctorate in Engineering in applied mathematics from Eindhoven University of Technology, and she earned her Master of Science in acoustics from Université du Maine – Le Mans where she also earned her License in physics.
Ando in action
It takes a village to create a special place for a community to call home. Our team brings together specialists with backgrounds in the performing arts, architecture, mechanical engineering, lighting design, acoustics, and more to offer a holistic approach to creating, renovating, or repurposing all forms of storytelling spaces. We understand the decisions that need to be made at every stage of the project and we know how to make a performance space work for artists, audience, and production teams.
