Sited in a rural New England landscape adjacent to an existing 18th century farmhouse, the Recording Studio’s functional requirements are achieved by separating the program into a large recording and editing space isolated from workshop, office and break spaces. As part of the Guilford Sound campus, the facility is used by visiting and local artists to develop musical projects and sound-art pieces. The basic forms are inspired by regional vernacular building types, but detailed in a contemporary manner. A standing seam zinc roof serves as a base for an extensive photovoltaic panel array designed to offset power use by the 5,000 square-foot facility.
