LIFT Youth Hub Recording Studio is a vibrant space in London, born from the transformation of a historic Victorian school. Beyond its stunning architecture, the hub offers an array of facilities, including a gym, meeting rooms, large multi-use halls, indoor and outdoor kitchens, a spacious dance studio, and a breathtaking rooftop terrace with panoramic views.

LIFT is a sanctuary for young minds seeking personal growth and opportunities. Whether it's guidance on apprenticeships, college applications, CV building, job hunting, volunteering, or project development.

The centerpiece of this remarkable hub is the recording studio, a space for local kids to nurture their musical talents and create art. Moreover, local businesses can hire this studio, contributing to the growth and sustainability of the entire hub.

In their recording studio, we took acoustic isolation to the next level with the installation of a Stravifloor Channel floating floor system. The foundation for this system are strong galvanized steel channels placed over medium stiffness isolation pads. This solid base supports the fiber cement board-based floating floor application, ensuring stability and optimal performance.

Furthermore, the solution incorporates a damping layer, guaranteeing exceptional sound isolation from the rest of the building. To achieve this isolation effectively, we implemented a perimeter isolation strip (Perimeter Strip) to separate the floating floor from the surrounding structure.

Thanks to the meticulous installation, the recording studio now boasts unparalleled sound quality, providing an ideal environment for artists and musicians to unleash their creativity without interference from external noise and without disturbing the surrounding spaces.
