The Big Picture - Sound Proof Barn Timelapse

The Big Picture Stand: B150

Our client asked for a complete turnkey solution. First step in the build was fill out all roof rafters with high density soundproofing. Soundproofing elements in walls were up to half a metre thick.

Once the room was lasered out we put in a levelled/insulated floor. We built brick pillars directly off the concrete floor for a rock-solid base to house speakers and subwoofers.

We felt that the ATMOS experience would be better with speakers up higher than eight feet. This added great complexity to the design and build as we had to incorporate three sloping ceiling parts decoupled from the outer shell to prevent sound transmission to the original building.

There was also a requirement for a fire escape that added some complexity and challenged us to keep sonic performance paramount whilst not distracting from the overall aesthetic.
