We were brought on to this project in leafy south-west London to design a specialist, acoustically treated music studio in a new basement renovation. After speaking to the client and discovering their broader technology needs, Equippd was commissioned to design and create a whole-home technology solution that integrates entertainment, environment and security systems. The entire concept was designed with future-proofing at its heart, so cutting-edge cabling was installed throughout to enable instant updates and tweaks at a later date. The basement features an automated ‘glass wall’ that enables it to be opened up into a single space for parties, but also closes and acoustically seals the studio space when required. We integrated the home’s lighting system with the music studio, installing a ‘jam’ button on the lightswitch, which sets the lights, drops the blinds and fires up the room’s electronics to create the perfect atmosphere to play or listen.
