Shoreditch. Sound Studio
The old warehouse had been neglected for some years and, though in a rough condition, was of a solid construction.
The client, a breakaway from another established studio, saw the potential in the building for his professional purposes.
Sound studios need specialist construction. The rooms have to be soundproof; that means blocking any exterior sounds coming in and preventing extraneous noise when recording. When done properly, there is an eerie sensation of a sonic vacuum. When you speak your voice seems to fall directly to the floor.
So much for the technicalities. The building needed a facelift inside and out to attract business. The raw brickwork was cleaned; soundproof walls were built and some of the larger taps, pipes and valves retained as sculptures.
Colours applied to the walls and the construction of a well-designed wooden reception desk gave the studio a purpose-built relevance in this age of technology. The old building has come alive.
"The Redline team was exactly what we were looking for, a reliable building company that are great to work with. They are very skilled tradesmen and always courteous. Some complex design changes and unusual finishes all taken within their stride. Highly recommended!"
