Musicians at all levels require a dedicated space to make music. For this reason most, whether professional or hobby musicians, use home music studios. Music studios can be used for recording music, teaching music, and just playing music in general. Musicians often convert a spare bedroom, den, or basement in to a studio; however, the studios are more efficient when they are created specifically for making music. A conservatory with high ceilings as well as a large floor plan or perhaps a lean-to style addition can create the perfect environment for a home music studio.
A studio contains significant amounts of high-end, expensive instruments and electronics, so many people may shy away from the idea of housing it within an entirely glass structure. When properly designed, however, a conservatory is really a durable, highly efficient, and weather proof glass structure. Utilizing a durable and thermally enhanced material for your framework, including aluminum, will ensure the structure is not going to rot, rust, warp, and deteriorate over time. Implementing the proper glazing options will provide both sound reduction and security for your equipment. When installed together with other options, including polycarbonate, an aesthetically pleasing and functional music studio can be accomplished for residential applications. Polycarbonate is a sturdy alternative to glass that can also withstand severe impacts and help protect musicians’ equipment. Insulating the polycarbonate with Lumira® aerogel will assist in absorbing sound and help control the dynamics in the studio.
Controlling sound is very important in a studio application and doing so in a conservatory is possible. Using Lumira® along with other acoustically rated glazing options may help reduce noise transmission. Acoustical ratings are based on a product’s Sound Transmission Class (STC) and Outdoor-indoor Transmission Class (OITC). STC describes how good a system is effective in reducing airborne sound waves, while OITC indicates the speed at which sound is transferred between outdoor and indoor spaces. Absorbing sound is of equal importance in a music studio. Materials with a high noise reduction coefficient (NRC), such as foam padding, can help absorb sound and make up a better home music studio. Heavy drapes and velour fabric may be hung to be sure the entire studio provides the highest sound absorbing properties.
The music studio may also include interior dividing partitions to produce additional rooms for recording music. Folding, sliding, and stacking walls are ideal for creating temporary rooms inside a structure. Units could be designed with glazed or solid panels with incorporating acoustic panels and bass traps to further maximize the studio’s acoustics. Using vtwvbo flooring, such as tile, wood, and concrete, and designing the conservatory using a wood interior can create well-rounded acoustics.
Making music is more than just a hobby for many people. Building a home music studio allows musicians to record high-quality music at any time they desire. A properly-designed conservatory is the ideal structure to support any sized music studio. Make contact with an experienced engineering and design team through the planning phase for extra options and assistance creating an efficient music studio inside the framework of the conservatory.
