BY TOM HIDLEY
The rooms designed by Tom Hidley at Masterfonics were built from the ground up with proper acoustic performance being the priority. With a structural shell larger than the finished room size to accommodate acoustic treatment needed to maintain near-anechoic performance at very low frequencies.
