Natural Light

• Designed for isolation, absorption, and diffraction. The "room within a room" floating floor on top of a resiliently mounted concrete slab isolates the studio from rest of the building. The acoustically treated fiberglass walls allow for low-frequency absorption, while the high ceiling provides additional sound diffraction.
