STUDEBAKER SOUND BOOTH & EXECUTIVE LOUNGE SPACE

Project Size:

---

Located on the east end of Michigan Avenue's historic, renovated Studebaker Theater, we designed a new, state-of-the-art sound booth and connected executive lounge space in order to accommodate the expanding needs of the theater. The sound booth (INPUT HERE FROM BRIAN ABOUT TECH SPECS). With a premier client in NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell me now using this space, we provide tasteful adjacencies - An ambient space for gathering perched atop the third floor, and a quiet space of technical excellence sitting at its heart.

Location:

Chicago, Illinois

Type:

Entering from the third floor lobby,  a corridor connects an executive lounge, bar space, and sound booth into a new space for the arts perched atop the historic Studebaker Theater.

TECHNICAL DETAILS OF SOUNDBOOTH. MOSTLY UNCHANGED, JUST CLEANED UP TO USE COMMON LANGUAGE, ADD PEOPLE AND ENTOURAGE, AND INCLUDE SOME MATERIALS OF KEY TECHNICAL SOUND DAMPING ASPECTS

Because of our clients need for a highly controlled space which can accommodate any highly complex show, the quality of the soundbooth needed to meet an extremely high standard. Connecting from the third floor lobby space, down a stair, to the large glazing which overlooks the space, the walls are lined with sound proofing material AND MORE TECH SPECS. 

The executive lounge takes a modern approach on the historic grandeur of the Studebaker Theater below, with new oak paneling and stylized wallpaper.
