The Barber Shop Studios, Lake Hopatcong, NJ
Nominated for 2005 "TEC Facility Design of the Year"
Architect: Francis Manzella Design

For years, Barbershop Studios' CEO Scott Barber had envisioned owning a studio on a lake. President Mark Salamone always wanted a studio housed in an old church. Their dreams came to fruition when they discovered a 100-year-old stone church in New Jersey nestled on Lake Hopatcong, which now houses the tristate area's newest facility for 5.1 and 7.1 recording, editing, mixing and mastering. Sonic Construction was chosen as the general contractor.

Fran Manzella of Francis Manzella Design Inc. supervised the studio's design, which includes cathedral ceilings and hints of the original stone in the spacious live room, which is built, like the two control rooms, on a floating floor.
