we  love jam studios

The Brief for this project was to create a flexible recording / audio production studio that would also function as a live performance space for intimate concerts. This project had two main constraints. The first being that building is a heritage-listed former wool store and secondly; it had no windows or access to natural daylight!  Our approach to the heritage aspect of the space was to create studios and sound-proof rooms that were suspended within the heritage framework so as to have a minimal impact upon the existing structure. To compensate for lack of natural daylight, we created strongly defined public and private areas to mimic an indoor/ outdoor experience. This was overlayed with a dynamic lighting design. The larger 'public' spaces were made brighter in order to create a daylight experience and the private spaces incorporated more intimate lighting design.
