What Houzz contributors are saying:

Solar lighting tubes weave through the architecture of the music room and other parts of the second floor. "This family uses very few electrical lights in the home during the day, which in the end saves on energy and utility costs," says Goulette.
Amber Hopman added this to 12 Home Stages That Put on a Great Show
Though not raised, this wood-laden space is perfect for putting on a show. The wide-open area has plenty of room for dancing and performing, while the built-in cabinets can store instruments and other equipment.
Laura Gaskill added this to 8 Ways to Bring Summer Fun Indoors
8. Empty space. Sometimes it’s better to leave your options open. Clear out a room and see the potential:Add a disco ball and music, and it becomes a dance club. Hang curtains from the ceiling and add a trunk of dress-up clothes, and it becomes a theater where little ones can put on plays. Haul in the instruments and hang a backdrop with a band name, and it becomes a practice and performance space for a band.Add folding card tables and string twinkle lights overhead, and it becomes the perfect space for a big dinner party.Tell us: Do you have a spare room? What would you love to do with it?
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Sound Advice for Designing a Home Music Studio
We control reflection primarily in two ways: through diffusion and absorption. Ideally, a music room has surfaces that diffuse or break up the sound waves and scatter them about. Rough surfaces (like the exposed framing seen here), brickwork, rough stone, wood slats and fixed or pivoting panels all aid diffusion. But too much reflection will make music sound muddy in a room. To counteract this most rooms need some means of absorbing or deadening sound waves.
