The Context and Requirements
The high-end studio project in the high-end urban area VinHomes Ba Son (Ho Chi Minh City) is one of the interesting projects in 2021 that iSS Acoustics has completed. The owner of the studio is a young female musician who recently returned to the country at the invitation of the project investor (an artist management unit).
The client’s request was simple but equally challenging: Turn the room into a high-end studio so female artists can freely compose, mix, mix… with very high quality without being interrupted. affected by the weather outside or adjacent rooms.
It is still very simple with iSS Acoustics. So where is the difficulty?
Is in very modest room size. Only about 18 m2 wide because the intended use is designed as a bedroom, our mission is to ensure all the above requirements without the room being much narrower! Oh, and it has to be pretty too!

The room is not designed to be a professional studio from scratch, all positions, door sizes, and windows (2 very large windows on two perpendicular sides of the wall) are not favorable and greatly affect the environment. sound quality.
We had to up to 3 different technical options, each with its own compromise to ensure the technical and aesthetic requirements of the customer.
The entire front and side window areas are kept intact so that the female musician can enjoy the scenery, find inspiration, and reduce stress while working. We installed a system of specialized windows and glass walls to significantly improve the sound insulation of the room.
The studio’s sound absorption system is carefully calculated, ensuring that even when using a monitor with a good bass extension, there will be no resonance problems. The sound should be consistent and the stereo image should be good both in the mixing position and the relaxing sofa at the end of the room.

Below is the verbatim response of the Owner’s Representative when we asked about the feeling after the technical inspection and acceptance of the studio:
“The studio is so beautiful. Excellent soundproofing. Next time, I will suggest your side to do everything to ensure quality” – Representative of the Investor
The customer feedback reflected the project’s results. The room has excellent acoustics. Extremely detailed and accurate. Stable, balanced sound from both the mixing position and the sofa at the end of the room. The background noise level in the room is below 30 dBA despite the rain outside.
Not only us, but also the female artist who owns the room, the investor is very excited to talk about the experience of using and working with the room in the near future. Hopefully from here will produce many new HITs, storming the charts like other studio owners that iSS Acoustics has worked with.
