WBUR Radio – Boston University
Although radio is not usually thought of as a visual medium, its interior image is important, and the new studios are the highlight of the space. Completed in the spring of 1996, the facility includes four control rooms each with associated studios, booths and support spaces. RBDG found it necessary to increase the ceiling height by an additional six feet to achieve the sound isolation, low noise floor, and acoustical character appropriate for a market leader of this caliber. In addition, the studios were conceived as rooms within a room, acoustically isolated from the main structure by floating floors, double-wall construction and sound isolation ceilings.
