This recording studio for innovative recording engineer and musician Pete Weiss, solves issues of acoustics while engaging the site and context. An extension of an existing century-old barn, the new structure utilizes a variation on the pitched roofs in the area: a simple ‘scissor’ truss is mirrored to create both east and west skylights while on the interior, the asymmetrical space works acoustically to diffuse sound. The open end-bay of the structure extends views into the rural landscape and creates a rest area for musicians.
A mirrored scissor truss creates an asymmetrical roof solving acoustic issues, while allowing for day-lighting and natural ventilation from the east and west.
The open tracking room has ample daylight while being acoustically isolated
