Former Atlanta Falcons offensive tackle Bob Whitfield selected Russ Berger Design Group (RBDG) for the renovation of a warehouse building adjacent to the existing PatchWerk Recordings in Atlanta, GA. This 3,500 sq. ft. addition houses a new 5.1 mix room, studio with four isolation booths, machine room, kitchen and hang lounge.
RBDG was able to establish numerous visual connections between spaces by vertically stacking two of the isolation booths and strategically locating the hang lounge with a view from above looking through a third isolation booth. From the control room, eye contact can be made with clients in the studio, hang lounge, and all three booths.
RBDG chose to skin the exterior of the addition in corrugated metal to express the high tech interiors housed within. New glazed openings sliced through the skin allow penetration of natural light into select portions of the facility. The interior finish-out features a combination of hardwoods, metals and stone, demonstrating a unique use of acoustical finishes.
The new studio features a 96-input SSL 9000 J console, the first in the state of Georgia.
