The program was straightforward: A cozy music room on a family estate nestled in the heart of the Redwoods. Three years later, the completed project encompassed a professional-quality recording studio and performance space, all housed within a 19th-century barn the owners discovered in New York and shipped to Northern California by rail. The PritchardPeck team was tasked with bringing the cutting-edge studio and historic barn into harmony, while creating an inspiring lighting design that met rigorous standards for acoustical engineering. What does beautiful lighting sound like? That question became an obsession for us over the course of this project.
