The architect should specify sound absorption inside the kitchen, which should address most of the annoyance concern
The architect should specify sound absorption inside the dining room, which should address most of the annoyance concern
The architect should specify high sound transmission loss assemblies in the opaque, non-open, portion of the partition separating the dining room from the kitchen
The architect should inform the owners that there’s no way to meaningfully address noise isolation between an open kitchen and an adjacent dining room; the only way to address the noise while maintaining a visual connection to the cooks would involve closing up the kitchen with a window
