Mr Stevenson is the acoustic director from BDP and he has brought us a brochure of the acoustic related projects done by BDP. Therefore, we are using these practical projects for a reference when designing our case and it has been proved very useful.

One proposal for the live room from our two groups applies the shape of the hexagon in the use of absorb panel so that they can interlock piece by piece and also create a dynamic interior atmosphere. Curtain division between the main live room and storage space allows the possibility of larger space if needed. The circle lighting system is on the top.

The sketch shows how the control room has been designed in terms of the interior with the consideration of the acoustic panels. The yellow indicates the absorb panel and green shows the diffuser panel. Three windows are drawn in blue connecting the control room with vocal room and live room. Suspended ceiling has been added in this room as well.

Professor Andy Moorhouse of University of Salford has kindly led us on a tour to visit the sound labs today. We visited a total five types of spaces, including:

1. Reverberation chamber (Photo 2)
2. Full anechoic chamber (Photo 3)
3. Semi anechoic chamber
4. Listening room (Photo 4)
5. Recording studio

Not only did he explain the properties of each room in great depth. A sound demonstration was also performed to show us the effect of the reverberance chamber. Detail construction methods and design details were also explained to us regarding how to make each chamber soundproof.
A few little details to be mentioned here is the fact that these anechoic chambers are all built as a room within a room, where the inner box is completely detached from the rest of the building, with floor plates built on springs. This ensures that no sound or vibrations from the outside are able to get into the chamber and vice versa.
The third photo as shown above is the anechoic chamber, the wedges from the walls are all made from special acoustic foam that is able to absorb all frequency of sound waves. The floor is also covered with these wedged shaped foam with a trampoline mesh material on top.

Today is, without a doubt a remarkable experience that Group G students found highly inspirational. We look forward to using some of our knowledge learnt from today to come up with interesting designs for GHS's recording studio.
