FINAL PROPOSALS OF VOCAL ROOM FROM GROUP 1
Presented here is the exploded axonometric diagram and sectional persepective of the control room for ideal scheme. The idea here is to use as much absorbing panel as possible as it can effectively reduce the echo of the room in order to get the best vocal recording and be more flexible on post-editing the sound.

FINAL PROPOSALS OF LIVE ROOM FROM GROUP 1
Presented here is the exploded axonometric diagram of the live room for both affordable and ideal scheme. For ideal scheme, we use a mixture of combination of absorbing and diffusing panels to achieve the best acoustic effect. On the other hand, we replace the absotbing panels into a black curtain to achieve a similar acouistic effect but in a more affordable price.

LIVE ROOM & CONTROL ROOM
Presented here is the sectional sketches showing the space in live room, the control room and the wall detail. The color pattern on the wall is chosen to match the theme color of Gorse Hill Stuido. Different geometry in two room identify the two different spaces. The sketch help us to understand more about the relationship betweeen each room in order to provide a more suitable design approach.

CONTROL ROOM PERSPECTIVE
Presented here is the first draft perpsective inside control room for us the visualize the room. We used a combination of diffusing panel and absorbing panel in order to achieve the best acoustic in the control room

CONTROL ROOM DESIGN
Presented here are the control room design from our group 1. The exploded isometric diagram shows the construction detail of the wall and ceiling. We have come up with two schemes which one of it is the affordable design and the other one is the Ideal design. The main different between two schemes is the uses of the mineral wool behind the plasterboard and the abosorbtion panels.

GHS // DAY 5
It is our hornor to have Mr. Stevenson, acoustic director from BDP as well as our collaborator, Caroline with us to review our project today.
Mr. Stevenson was interested in our project and has given a lot of comments on the room construction, material selection on diffusing and absorbing panels. On the other hand, Caroline was happy and amazed about the progress we have right now and looking forward to the final proposal.
Today absolutely is an unforgettable experience for Group G studens, we shared a lot of ideas with Mr. Stevenson and Carolione, which gave us insights on further development. We look forward to our final presentation.

VISIT TO GORSE HILL STUDIO
Caroline gave us a tour of Gorse Hill Studio. She introduced some important function rooms like theater, dance studio, art room and the recording studio which we are going to re-design. She explained that it could be better if the function room can be multi-purpose like there is a black curtain around the dance studio to hide the mirror at the back in order to serve different purposes.

VISIT TO GORSE HILL STUDIO
It is the first time that the BA students to visit Gorse Hill Studio and meet with our colaborator. Our students know more about the background and the needs of GHS after the visit. Our colaborator, Caroline gave us a tour of GHS and show us around each room and the functions. Students were enjoyed in discussing the design scheme with Caroline. It is a good start to have the site visit before they start focusing on the design.

GHS// DAY 1
Listening room is an interesting space that has a combination of diffusers and absorbant panels. It is designed not to have zero reverberance like the anechoic chambers, but to achieve low reverberance so one can clearly focus on hearing the sounds and pitch without much echos. Specially designed panels of various modulation lined the walls to prevent standing waves, whilst boxes with mesh fabric line the higher section of the room to absorb sounds.
We learnt from today's experience that sound insulation is different from sound absorption. And that a recording studio should not target for zero reverberance but should use a mixture of diffusers and absorbant panels to achieve the idea effect.

GHS // Acoustic Research Center
University of Salford has an outstanding set of facilities for students. Their facilities are built to the most professional specifications and is avaliable for students, researchers and commercial clients. They have wide range of studios like reverberation chambers, semi-anechoic room and anechoic chamber.
Reverberation chambers | When designing room like music theater or concert hall, it is important to have accurate reberation time of space in order to get the best acoustic of sound. Different material can be tested in this room to know the level of absorbtion of sound of the materials.
Semi-anechoic Room | This is a room which sound reflections only come from the floor as the walls and ceiling are absorbent. The solid floor makes this room much easier to work in than the anechoic chamber, because equipment can be stood on the solid floor. Absorbent material can be put on the floor to reduce floor reflections.
Anechoic Chamber | This is a room which is acoustically like being high above the ground in the open air because there are no reflections from the walls, floor or ceiling. This means it is ideal for testing the response of loudspeakers or microphones because the room doesn’t affect the measurements.

GHS // What is Acoustic?
There are many kinds of sound and many ways that sound affects our lives. Sound sources can be speech, background noise, speakers, music etc. Acoustic design or consideration are a crucial topic in architecture. Different purpose of a room require different acoustic design solution. When all sound is absorbed equally, a room sounds balance and pleasant. On the other hand, some room may required the sound to linger on for a while like theater or music hall. Therefore material selection and placement of absorbent panel are important for acoustic design.

GHS // Location Plan of Acoustic Research Center
We will be visiting Acoustic Research Center in University of Salford on 25th March to experience sound testing under different situations. It is an ideal place for testing the response of different sound instruments as there are no reflections from the ceiling , wall or floor. Students can imagine how it feels when being in a recording studio and what acoustic requirement needed inside a recording studio.

GHS // Location Plan of Gorse Hill Studio
We will be visiting Gorse Hill Studio on 26th March to take a look at the recording studio that we are going to re-design and have a discussion with our collaborator.
