KEMADO RECORDS

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK

SPG Architects converted an existing 8,000 SF 19th century warehouse in Brooklyn, NY into a new recording studio and headquarters. The building’s context and the existing masonry and heavy timber construction inspired SPG and the client to maintain an industrial expression while incorporating the demanding technological needs of a music-recording studio. The design provides a visual juxtaposition of the new modern interventions in the industrial building throughout. A modern yet industrial material palette provides a tactile connection to the building’s refinished wood-plank floors and exposed structure. New over-sized glass paned garage doors blur the threshold between the streetscape and the building interior while a new rooftop deck provides incredible views and a visual connection to Manhattan.
