Music studio and synthesizer museum - a sharp volume of timber adapted to a historic building environment.
The project is planned within 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 for visiting musicians where the collection of synthesizers will 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 basement of the building will be made out of 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 behind him funds making the creation of "Studio Martin" possible.
