hello, i'm new here.
i am currently restoring an old barn in order to create my home studio (mainly a control room, composition studio) in it's attic.
the surface is 30 m² (322.91 sq ft)
lenght : 6 m (19.68 ft)
width : 5 m (16.40 ft)
the smallest height is 1.70 m (5.58 ft) and the highest is 2.70 m (8.86 ft)
the volume is 66 m³ (2330.76 ft³)
my first question is about the stairway hopper.
right now, the stairway isn't constructed yet.
i would like to have your advice about closing (or not) this path.
do you think it's unavoidable (in terms of acoustics) or can i leave it just like this, with an open staircase ?
if i have to close it, wich solution will sound the best :
- a door downstairs with a closed stairway (adding volume)
- a stairwell upstairs (breaking the room symmetry and substracting some volume)
i hope my question is clear : my english is poor... sorry
thank you !
