Townsend

Music Studio with storage

Specification:

External dimensions: 4.79m by 3.39m
Internal height: 2.15m(min)
Internal area: 14msq

Requirement

Our client is a professional pianist requiring an acoustically well insulated room in which to play and record. Though it was fully appreciated that glazing is the weakest point acoustically the design includes a window and glazed corner so that it is still pleasant to use with garden views and natural light.

Our Solution

Platinum Acoustic Package: Our ultimate solution for use in music/recording studios and where low frequency noise is an issue:

Floor: 3-layer acoustic underlay mat (image 7)

Walls: Fastener (with incorporated rubber de-coupler), metal furring strips (41mm) with infill of acoustic mineral wool (30mm), acoustic plasterboard (12.5mm) - Acoustic rubber membrane (2.6mm self-adhesive) - Acoustic plasterboard (12.5mm). Total = 68.6mm

Ceiling: Acoustic rubber membrane (2.6mm self-adhesive) on SIP (Structural insulated panel), Resilient bar (13.5mm) and acoustic plasterboard (12.5mm). Total = 28.6mm

Acoustic Glazing: An important feature as glazing though lovely for light, is weakest point acoustically.

Powder coated aluminium frames: Colour - black/grey RAL7021ST

Fujitsu LT Climate Control unit: Top of the range domestic unit with outstanding energy performance and added feature of an infra-red movement sensor to switch it on or off.

Composite decking: A meter deep decked area across along the front facade provides room for chairs and a small table.

Electrics: 6 internal and 2 external dimmable LED down-lights, plus 7 surface mounted double power sockets, installed by our electrician.
