Producer and DJ Will Wallace has recently acquired a new property within the iconic Battersea Power Station development and was recommended to Kazbar Systems for assistance with the conversion into a writing and production studio.

” Amazing work from the whole Kazbar Team! They managed to get the room sounding great whilst being respectful of the architectural features and style, which was vital for me.
The cloud absorber is especially well done and the whole project was delivered to an exceptional standard. Great job!

Battersea Power Station

Between the 1930s and 1980s, Battersea Power Station was at its peak; generating a fifth of London’s electrical supply, however in 1983 operations at the Power Station were ceased. Many people will recognise Battersea Power Station from the iconic cover art of Pink Floyd’s Animals album which was released back in 1977. Now this legendary London landmark and surrounding areas is undergoing a £9bn development, bringing it back to life as one of the most exciting and innovative mixed use neighbourhoods in the world.

Once concepts and specifications had been agreed, the bespoke high and low frequency absorbers were manufactured offsite and installed, including an acoustic drape, by Kazbar Systems to adequately control the areas reverb time. All acoustic treatments were finished in acoustically neutral fabric from Camira Fabrics and in the client’s preferred colour.

The solution developed by Kazbar Systems delivered excellent sonic performance and was sympathetic to the original architectural features of the property.
