Music is art, and it should be created in a space that inspires creativity. The studio, designed by Wes Lachot, is based on a hexagonal geometry which reflects and diffuses sound for optimal acoustics. The roughly 1,200 square foot studio has a relaxed, cozy feel to it, complete with a fireplace and 20 foot wall of windows overlooking the river. Rotating acoustic panels, absorptive on one side, diffusive on the other, can be adjusted to different positions depending on the session.

One end of the studio features an isolation booth that can house a full set of drums or the studio’s grand piano. On the other end off the control room, is a large isolation booth for vocals and amps.
