Privé opnamestudio, Londen
The concept for the recording studio – with an exposed timber structure and plywood paneling, a “constructivist” approach to materials, and views to garden outside – emerged during early discussions with the client. Materials were selected considering both their acoustical properties and environmental impact: sheep's wool, cork, woodwool, recycled cotton insulation and timber are used extensively with a minimum of concrete and masonry used in the construction. During foundation excavations, an old bomb-shelter was found and incorporated into the design, providing a basement machine room and storage space.
