SOUND STUDIO, Virginia Highlands

In the heart of the vibrant and historic neighborhood of Virginia Highlands in Atlanta, a well-known audio engineer and sound designer needed a studio dedicated to his sound production work. The new studio is situated at the back of his property and is in contrast to the old cottage-style house facing the street. The studio's architecture and design were created in collaboration with Nashville acoustic designer Carl Tatz, with specific functions for acoustic and recording purposes dictating the forms and heights of the building.


The building has two levels, with the main level accommodating a mixing room, and the second floor a lounge and recording booth. The entire structure is clad with dark gray fiber cement panels, except for the recording booth, which has a distinct warm color of cedar wood. The upstairs lounge is filled with natural light and has a small deck, making it a perfect place to enjoy a break from work.
