Utter Associates builds out new room for KEXP


Seattle’s indie radio station KEXP is located at the Seattle Center Campus next door to Key Arena, which is undergoing major renovation in preparation for a new hockey team coming to town. The construction noise was addressed with the build out of a new acoustically isolated DJ Booth/ Production room.

Utter Associates was involved with the project early on, working with the architect on the room layout and designing the casework and was on-site for construction coordination to ensure the console and other elements were properly integrated.

The room which will serve as a back-up DJ booth during the construction was designed to be a dual purpose room, serving also as an audio production suite. The result was a new favorite room for much of the KEXP staff.
