From beer cellar to music studio

The Nosiefloor started off life as a disused beer cellar. 3 months later it was a soundproofed, sonically treated music studio full of pro-level gear. This blog post briefly outlines the final steps in the building process, including details of the bespoke ventilation system our acoustics and DIY expert designed!

In the first of a series of blogs detailing the building of the studio we look at the inception of the idea, the hunt for an adequate space and the initial thoughts as to how best to tackle the project.
