My space (18' X 31') is acoustically treated with RPG panels and fiberglass over triple reinforced walls and ceiling. Floor is lamination beams over steel plates and two 5/8 epoxy sheets on the floor. Above that floats two inches of concrete plus sheets of India multi color slate.
All the reinforcement and acoustic treatment goes unnoticed, due to Whisper Wall rail system and fine textured acoustic cloth covering everything. In these photos (and often in person) it passes for painted sheetrock.
The room acoustics were conceived by RBDG and the entire space was torn out to bare dirt under the foundation and bare studs in the walls about nine years ago.
