Suite TV expands with White Mark-designed studio
Posted on: Tuesday 29th of May 2018
Suite TV’s new 20ft x 15ft studio is equipped for full Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound and DTS, with a Genelec monitoring system. It also features custom designed furniture by AKA and a Screen Excellence projection screen. The decision to add a fourth audio studio was based on sound commercial grounds, says Suite TV Chairman Julian Aston. “We had been planning to add a new studio for some time as our existing three audio suites were regularly filling up with work. Also, many of our clients wanted a bigger and more spacious facility.” To create space for the new studio at its Newman Street, London, premises, Suite TV assigned a room in the loft that was formerly used for grading. Acoustic design consultancy White Mark was called in the tackle the project because of their experience in audio facility design.
“White Mark provided a turnkey service and we used their recommended builders, Woodstock Joinery, as well as a design consultant, Cann Creative Ltd. It was a very smooth and seamless project, which was delivered on time and budget,” Aston says. David Bell, Managing Director of White Mark Ltd, adds: “This was a challenging project given the roof top location of the studio space. Working with Nichola McCann, of Cann Creative, was very rewarding with her interior design input questioning our normal approach to all aspects of the project. This has resulted in a sonically excellent space that is both individual in appearance and an extremely comfortable and visually appealing workspace.”
Julian Aston says working with White Mark and Cann Creative was a very positive experience. “We have worked with many builders and designers in the past on different projects with varying degrees of success, but this was an extremely smooth and professional experience,” he says.
