[SIGNAL PATH] Connect two control rooms to one recording booth

Hi everybody,

although this is my first post in the gearslutz universe, i have always been a very active reader.

My main question is: What is the common solution to connect a booth to two control rooms?

I am moving my studio for the third time now and everytime I do, it gets bigger and more complex. So now I am planning to have two control rooms with a recording booth in between. The booth will be mainly used for vocals, upright piano and maybe guitar amps.
Thinking about how to connect the booth to both control rooms, I'm running into the following problems:

How can I split the signal from the booth to the control rooms maintaining control over phantom power from both control rooms? Every splitter I found had a "through" and a "parallel" so only the "through" channel can supply phantom power, am I right?

Do regular splitters work in both directions? Of course there has to be Cue Signal sent into the booth.

I hope somebody can help me out here, really looking forward to your replies!!
