Why do I suspect so strongly that this might be a John Sayers design? :)

Seriously, John, there's only one word: Stunning! :!:

OK, one more word: WOW!

James - the owner and builder sent me a thank you note today.

"everyone who has been through raves about the design so thanks for doing such an excellent job.....also control sounds excellent, really even wherever you are situated, no boomy spots or anything like that, I'm extremely happy with it. Tried recording a kit a few times, with fantastic results, I found so far the best scenario is drums in the booth with the doors open.....with mics in the big room, sounds great. "

Wow. That's absolutely beautiful. It's warm and modern and zen, all at the same time. I love the textures. Fantastic.

Very nice John! I love it.

A quick question, always wondered it. Whats the installation method when you have 3 pieces of glass together in an angle like in the control room's front? Do you cut the edges in the right angle and just caulk the joints? Any other procedure? Because they look so clean like they are just next to each other.

Cheers!

Does anyone happen to know if those triangular wooden deflectors / absorbers are readily available to purchase or if they were custom built? They look great in that space.

Those are custom designed for the room.

They are not deflectors or absorbers, but rather slot resonators, and they are specifically tuned to the correct frequency ranges needed to treat that specific room. You tune them by setting the correct slot width, spacing between slots, thickness of the slotted panel, and depth of the cavity behind the slot. You can also adjust the Q by placing porous absorption inside the cavity, in the right position for whatever effect it is that you need. The math isn't that hard to figure it all out, but first you need to now what frequencies to tune it to, and where to put them in the room....

Well they are seriously sexy resonators. Love it when form and function are both accomplished to such a standard. I'm bookmarking this thread for future reference and design inspiration.
