Garage Conversion


Duration: 7 Weeks

Garage Conversion—Recording Studio, Winchester

This is one of the more interesting jobs we have had as it essentially turned a boring double garage into a full blown recording studio.    This does create some problems when the garage is within a few metres in every direction of other people’s properties, so noise mitigation was key.

The construction of this is something you only undertake if you understand it, acoustic engineering a building is difficult and requires a good design and accurate execution of it, this job was a graphic demonstration of both, because inside you can have a full band playing loud, outside you can’t hear them.



Hidden behind the walls and the gadgets are acoustically baffled ventilation systems, sound isolated structural steel, acoustic floors, and triple layer of soundbloc plasterboard.

Obviously musicians like everybody else need to answer the call of nature so within the studio is also a small toilet area which also doubles as a vocal isolation room!
