One Eyed Jack

Miloco were approached by Mark Crew and Bastille in February 2016 to look at host buildings for their studio project. We were on hand to run acoustic surveys and environmental impact assessments to find the perfect host building. Design began in earnest in late 2016 and with all permissions in place the Miloco team started on site in Feb on what was expected to be a four month build.

“What we were looking to achieve was a large airy day-lit space with great connectivity,”  says designer and operations manager Pete Hofmann. “We wanted to use a lot of glass but keep the rooms multi purpose so a rehearsal could be going on in the live rooms but critical mix work, or overdubbing could still be going on in the main studio.”

The complex design required careful structural calculation so the control room appeared to project into the live room to maximize the space and internal volume.

“You can just tell when a live room is going to sound great,” Pete continues, “Nick Whitaker made sure of all the calculations and wall angles to yield a drum room that sounds really punchy.”

The final works included a second smaller B room and also completely refurbishing the kitchen and bathroom facilities.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Pete Hofmann and the rest of the team at Miloco Builds. From the very first site visit to the design process, through construction and into completion, they have been enthusiastic, adaptable and considerate in their work." Dan Smith, Bastille
