Music studio and synthesizer museum - a simple and sharp house of timber adapted to a historic building environment.
The project will be implemented in connection with a historic property in the center of the world heritage site Røros. Studio Martin will include a new log building in combination with the existing historic building. In the existing house, visitors will have facilities and living rooms, while the new building will be a workplace and sound studio before visiting musicians. Here the collection of synthesizers will also be made available.
The building is designed as a sharp-cut volume of stacked timber based on local building tradition. In order to enhance the acoustic and spatial qualities of the project, some timber used in the interior of the ceiling. The downstairs will be done in padded concrete.
Studio Martin will offer musicians, both locally, regionally and internationally, the opportunity to work on their projects in a prime environment in the midst of the Røros World Heritage.
The musician Martin Aune died in December 2011. He was raised at Røros and established himself as a leading Norwegian musician within his genre and was among the leaders in digital music. He also left a fortune making the creation of "Studio Martin" possible.
