Architect: John McAslan and Partners
Type of works: design and manufacture of Junckers' acoustic hardwood flooring with NewEra sub system.

The new Void Practice Rooms at the Royal Academy of Music, cleverly created out of a light well, demonstrate how heritage concerns and functionality issues can be solved in an innovative design by architects John McAslan and Partners. Using state-of-the-art acoustic materials such as Junckers solid oak hardwood flooring with its NewEra sub system, two perfect practice rooms were created out of a very irregular space hemmed in on three sides by the backs of buildings. Instead of practicing their instruments in corridors and even lavatories, students now have a super quiet dedicated area for rehearsal. To provide the right sound absorption, Junckers oak flooring was secret nailed to kiln-dried softwood battens and supported by foam-backed strong polypropylene cradles.
