All the walls and surfaces are designed to reflect, diffuse or absorb sound depending on the requirements of each room. The composition rooms, for example, must be neutral both acoustically and visually. They have been fully clad with light grey Vibrasto. “My client and his team member, both cinema and television film music composers, wanted a studio that reflects their shared feelings”, Crockett continues. In general terms, the atmosphere in the studio is very inspired by nature, and the garden has been made the focal point of all the areas in the studio via wide glazed bays.
The live recording room is totally different. With its light oak external cladding, it is designed as an independent box, contrasting completely with the rest of the building. It was in this very volume that the architects worked with Texaa to develop a special flashy pink colour, used on every surface of the studio. Crockett points out, “As well as the possibility to develop this unique colour, Texaa provided us with a variety of solutions to use in this special space. So we combined Vibrasto cladding on the walls and ceiling with an enormous acoustic curtain of the same colour. The stitch, the brightness and colour finish of Texaa products have no equal in the market.” These qualities are capable of meeting the acoustic requirements, while providing a strong, monochromatic visual surface with a unique feel.
