MEZZO Stüdyo is an acoustical design and consultancy firm that combines expertise in acoustics, engineering, architecture and interiors to aid the design process in creation of acoustically comfortable, pleasant and performance-specific spaces. The company was founded in 2009 in Technopolis of Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey) by Zühre Sü Gül (MSc RPI 2006, PhD METU 2015) and Mehmet Çalışkan (PhD NCSU 1983). MEZZO priorities cutting-edge research in fields of interest -including room acoustics, building acoustics, noise and vibration control, environmental noise control, acoustical material science- and strives to provide state of art acoustical consultancy with emphasis on the code of ethics and seeks perfection within financial and technological limits.
Development and adoption of new methods in architectural acoustics through novel approaches have led MEZZO to be a pioneer. Apart from R&D projects, as of 2022, more than 300 consultancy projects have been completed. A variety of building typologies not limited to but includes congress and entertainment venues; educational buildings; health, science and R&D facilities; worship buildings; cultural heritage and historic buildings; hotels; offices and residential -mid to low rise- buildings; mixed-use towers; retail stores and malls; sports arenas; transportation terminals and industrial buildings.
Our motto “empowered by innovation” coupled with our ethical stand and sound communication with different design teams in realizing a project is the pure reason for the success, wherever we are in the world.
Mezzo Stüdyo strives to provide state of art acoustical consultancy with emphasis on the code of ethics and seeks perfection within financial and technological limits. We discretize project phases and procurement steps properly. As an independent consultant, our concentration and support to our clients include development of technically proper and economical design ideas and solutions. Acoustical product options, in our perspective, should be free from brand names, unless certain number of brands are required for very specific applications. For this reason, we prefer to specify in detail the system and material characteristics, for opening up the path of free and flexible choice for client, as a major company policy which is also emphasized by the worldwide body of independent acoustical consultants, that is, National Council of Acoustical Consultants.
Acoustical material research and development has been an important motivator in formation of MEZZO Stüdyo company profile. Unique materials for unique experiences have been the motto of the Company for both room and building acoustics materials. More specifically interior finishes, decorative elements and construction units are treated as fertile resources for developing creative and responsive ideas in resolving acoustical issues indoors and outdoors. There exist couple of utility models that the company owns on special sound scattering and absorptive devices. But in addition to that the academic researches and the graduate students supported by the company have prolific outcomes ranging from meta-materials to sustainable, biodegradable organic acoustical materials that are designed specifically to be used in building construction industry.
