AKA Design Completes Abbey Road Studios Project

News Image
AKA Design has recently completed an installation project at Abbey Road Studios. The company's technical furniture was selected for the studios' three new studio spaces, as well as a refurbishment of Studio 52.

The Gatehouse is a tracking studio, featuring new AKA left and right worktops in walnut for the room's 16-fader AMS Neve BCM10 console. The worktops feature desktop angled rack bays plus under-desk curved rack bays in a grey lacquer finish.

The Front Room is designed for smaller recordings and music production, and now has left and right worktops in oak with rack bays in grey lacquer either side of its 24-fader SSL Duality console.

Studio 52 is a flexible mix room that was given a refurbishment as part of the programme, and now contains an ergonomic rise-and-fall oak desk, for sitting or standing mixing, with a leather buffer bar and fabric-covered vanity screen.

In addition, Abbey Road's new Mix Stage for film sound post production offers Dolby Atmos Premier Studio Certification. AKA Design installed two producers' desks in walnut with angled racks and panel fabric-covered vanity screens, as well as a walnut AKA rise-and-fall coffee table at the back of the room that transforms up to a working table height with pop-up client power units.

Guy Wilson, Managing Director, AKA Design, said: "It's such a great transformation of the studios. We have an excellent working relationship with the studio, from both a technical and design point of view, and we look forward to hearing and watching many of the projects that are created in the new spaces."
