W Hotel Sound Suite
Consultant- Mallia Shumaker, SIC
W Hotels collaborated with Coca-Cola and DJ White Shadow, a North American music director best known for his work with Lady Gaga, to bring the Sound Suite concept to life and outfit the studios with the latest equipment in sound and music technology. Some of the features in the studio include a control keyboard, all-in-one DJ system, professional grade headphones and microphones, a Yamaha acoustic guitar, and a Fender jaguar bass.
During the concept stage W Hotel reached out to Sound Isolation Company for help with the acoustic design. For the project to be successful, The W would need to ensure that no adjacent rooms would be rendered unusable when the Recording Studio was in use. Mallia was able to provide them with a Recording Studio Soundproofing System to isolate the floors, walls and ceilings from the existing structure. By breaking the rigid connections, sound energy produced in the studio would not transmit directly into the neighboring hotel rooms.
Privacy Ultimate Floated Floor, and Kinetics IsoMax Resilient Clips into the design. Mallia also worked with our Acoustical Foam fabricator to provide custom color Studio Foam for the project, to match Coca Cola Red! Working with the acoustic design plans Mallia provided a material list, and the W Hotel purchased the products from Sound Isolation Company. The first Recording Studio was completed in Seattle, WA. Now the W has three working Recording Studios.
