I am a sound engineer and electronic music producer.
I started a small studio construction in Warsaw, Poland.
The studio will be located in the old hospital building in the center of the city.
The building was built in 1900 and is one of the few in the downtown that were not destroyed during the WWII.
The hospital itself was closed 12 years ago and since then there was no activity inside. Now, a bunch of friends run a project called Jerozolima which brings life into the building. The whole space (almost 400 square meters) was taken over by artists of all kind and there will be workshops, showrooms, studios, and ateliers, as well as a club, cultural center or a hostel - all of this in one place.
Having made the introduction let's move to the point. The room itself is located on the third floor and is about 20 sq m. It's a tiny space, but enough for my needs.
The studio will serve mainly for producing my own music projects (including recording vocals and small instruments).
The room was in quite a bad condition when I took it, especially the plastic floor.
The project consist of constructing a small vocal booth and acoustic adaptation of the main room. It will look more or less like this.
The adaptation of all the walls and ceiling in the main room will mainly consist of making a frame of wooden studs, putting 10cm of dense rockwool between them and covering the surface with nice fabric.
The wall between the main room and the vocal booth will be made of 4 layers of drywall, 10cm rockwool on an aluminium frame.
Instead of making a window between the two rooms I decided to use a triple glass balcony door, which is a nice solution in terms of price/functionality ratio.
