As visitors to Abbey Road studios will have witnessed, or if you’ve been following them online, Abbey Road has been undergoing some serious construction work over the past 18 months.
The building work marks the biggest transformation that has taken place at the studios since it first opened its doors back in 1931, and the beginning of a new era with the opening of two brand new studio spaces, The Gatehouse and The Front Room, together with a state-of-the-art Mix Stage for film post production.
The new studios are inspiring and accessible entry points, designed to make the magic of Abbey Road and its award-winning studio talent accessible to all recording artists and A&R budgets. By renovating and transforming the main townhouse front room and garage area, the new studios remain part of the fabric of Abbey Road Studios’ core facility.
Artists working in the inspirational spaces of The Gatehouse and The Front Room will have access to state-of-the-art recording technology, legacy vintage equipment and instruments used on landmark recordings as well as tapping into the studio expertise of Abbey Road’s award-winning engineers.
The new mix stage takes Abbey Road’s world-famous movie score recording facility to the next level with Dolby Atmos® Premier Studio Certification and IMAX audio compatibility. This landmark post production suite allows Abbey Road Studios to offer a service to film makers encompassing all elements of movie sound for the first time – scores, sound effects and dialogue.
