The existing studio space comprised of a two storey recording studio with live rooms, vocal booths, drum rooms and production suites. The new London property, which has been divided in two by a bespoke concrete staircase, boasts exposed brick walls throughout and is designed to remain true to its rock and roll history.

The renovation entailed stripping out the 1ft thick sound-proofed interior walls back to the bare brick. Exposed pipes and concrete floors were restored and retained as part of the industrial look.
