Tips wanted for studio design

We found a new place for the studio recently and we will start building and stuff soon. I'd like to get some tips on how to go about though, so I was hoping some of you here might have some ideas! I made a quick sketch of the place so you can kind of get the picture.



The small stair in the upper left lead up to a door at around 1m height. It leads out to the street and we plan on using it for loading/unloading. The windows are pretty big, also start at around 1m height I think and go almost all the way up to the ceiling (ceiling is approx. 3m).

The "wall" on the lower part (kind of dashed out) is not a wall but it's basically as far as our rented space goes. We still have access to the part behind (kitchen, toilet, shower etc is all located there) but we have to restrict what we build to this invisible barrier @ around 11m.

Oh, and the left wall is not crooked as it looks in the sketch! All the walls are straight, it's just me who can't draw properly, hehe...

Ok, all tips are welcome!!

Edit: forgot to mention, but what we need is a control room, a live room and a relax/tv room. One or two iso booths might be good to have too, but it's not absolutely necessary.

Your first stop should be my Acoustics FAQ:

Acoustic Treatment and Design for Recording Studios and Listening Rooms

There's also a lot of non-sales advice on my company's web site, linked under my name below. In particular, see this page which explains how to determine "good" room dimensions:

RealTraps - ModeCalc

Then follow up here with any questions.
