Spaces that look as good as they sound

A long way from egg boxes

It’s well known that the visual design of professional acoustic spaces creates an initial “wow factor” and plays a huge part in the lasting appeal to musicians and other creatives alike. The right vibe is essential. VA Design ensures that studios are visually stylised to each clients’ unique identity and aesthetic need. Finished materials are chosen for either acoustic transparency or effect and colour palettes chosen to support branding or individual styles. This complimentary aesthetic and attention to detail extends through fabric and surface finishes, lighting design and control, and custom furniture and fittings.

Cosmetic features are combined with acoustically necessary systems such as custom diffuser and RPG panels so the artistic presentation of the rooms is not compromised by the need for acoustic control. Purely decorative features are installed in such a way that they support the functionality of the acoustic or technical designs, and samples of proposed materials and finishes are collated for internal testing to ensure suitability. Bespoke designs of large-scale features in wood, steel or glass are all handled in-house.

We take our clients through a design process to ensure the aesthetic meets their vision. Ideas are initially presented through a mixture of sketches, layouts and mood-boards, and these ideas are fine tuned alongside the client. Fully rendered 3D models are generated of the proposed spaces to lead the client through the designs and provide a tangible impression of the final solution, and samples of fabrics and finishes are provided to complete the design package. We work closely with our clients from beginning to end to ensure the aesthetic truly meets their vision.

VA Design also provides interior design for high profile spaces such as receptions, meeting rooms and restaurants. Responsible for furniture selection and designing custom pieces and features, paint, fabric and flooring specifications, wall finishes and cladding, we deliver spaces that are dynamic and inspiring and seamlessly integrate brand identity.
