Pilchner Schoustal was called upon to design and realize a new creative and functional production environment for famed EDM artist Joel Zimmerman (Deadmau5). Joel having moved to his new estate in Campbellville required a new studio space to explore his music and media efforts. It was determined that the best space for the new studio would be the adaptive reuse of the former master bedroom wing of his residence. This was a large space with high ceilings and the benefit of two attached spaces that are now repurposed as an isolation booth and dedicated machine room. Also near this space is a large room (former ensuite) now used for equipment storage of his massive inventory of instruments, processing equipment and related devices.
The control room favours the length of the space and maintains the use of the existing windows to offer ambient indirect lighting as well as a centered front vista onto the property. To the rear of the space the room entrance is flanked by the isolation booth and machine room.
