Sustainable Acoustics has advised some of the music industry's most respected recording facilities, instructing innovative design solutions for materials, spaces, and separation levels; enabling the implementation of studios in locations which would otherwise be unfeasible as recording venues.

Case Study: TEN87 Studios

Sustainable Acoustics lead the innovative acoustic design of Ten87’s new studios in Tottenham, reusing an industrial warehouse and making it suitable for transitional studio facilities for recording and monitoring. This type of facility works to fill the gap in the market between the commercial high-end studios and the bedroom recording artist, and provides affordable access to top-notch facilities with a street community atmosphere reminiscent of a film set.

Sustainable Acoustics worked with KVIST architecture to create a temporary module-based design of studio pods, which fit together to create a meandering street through the space. The culture and community feel were important parts of this, and the ability to deconstruct the facility and relocate to re-use in another facility once the lease expires was key. The project demonstrated how much more can be done with less, which is where effective acoustic engineering enables this award-winning result. The materials used were FSC timber-based and were kept to sustainable sources where possible, ultimately making a tight budget go a long way.  


“We had the pleasure of working with the innovative and solutions-focused Sustainable Acoustics team on our award-winning urban regeneration scheme for TEN87 Studios in Haringey. Pete is a pleasure to work alongside, always enthusiastic and up for solving a tricky design challenge! We look forward to many more collaborations in the future.”

"Working with Pete and the Sustainable Acoustics team has been an incredibly positive experience. Their expertise was crucial during the planning and execution of our development at Markfield Road. Their ongoing support has been invaluable and we would recommend their services to anyone seeking concise acoustic consultancy"
