This project was top design a recording studio that met certain criteria and specification.
The positioning of studio was stated that it was close to a main road as well as train line. Further dimensioning of the exact position was left up to interpretation. The following graphic shows the position finalised upon.
Research was done into techniques and methods that are used to reduce sound propagation into the building as well as stopping the room releasing too much sound to the surrounding walls. This is the wall layer order that was decided upon to maximise the insulation and absorption.
This diagram shows how the room placed on a floating floor as well as having no direct construction beams connecting it to the outside wall. Numerous other techniques that were not specific to the structure of the wall were used to increase absorption. Anechoic wedges and hanging baffles were used to increase the absorption within the room by increasing the available surface area of the room.
Once all these design features had been put into place calculations were able to made to review the affect it had upon the room and whether or not it was able to meet the required specification.
