This is a project by SPG Architects and it is located at Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY, United States. Project's program: Recording studio and headquarters. There are seven images for Kemado Records.
Located in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood, SPG Architects was asked to convert an existing 8, 000 SF warehouse building from the mid 19th century into a new recording studio and headquarters. The history of the building and neighborhood, and the existing masonry and heavy timber construction inspired the SPG and the client to maintain an industrial expression while incorporating the demanding technological needs of a music-recording studio.
The recording studio itself rises the full 33’ of the building in a dramatic double-height space, punctuated by the original post-and beam structure, which continues as an architectural feature of the office area. The entry provides the first expression of the juxtaposition of the new modern interventions in the industrial building-existing wood joists are visible between the floating ceiling planes. A dramatic staircase leads to the offices, where refinished wide-plank flooring and timber structure are harmoniously incorporated into the renovated spaces-the modern yet industrial material palette provides a tactile connection to the building’s past. New over-sized glass paned garage doors blur the threshold between the streetscape and the building interior while a new rooftop deck with incredible views and a visual connection to Manhattan.
