Hammer & Hand: Custom HiFi Listening Room


Hammer & Hand built this custom listening room for a Portland audiophile designed by Art Noxon, using WallDamp for structural damping and custom built-in full bandwidth acoustics.

To isolate the room from the rest of the home and improve the listening experience the space includes a self-contained mini-split heat pump and a dedicated cryogenically-treated electricity system. Tibetan bowls allow the client to tune the room. 

The Hammer and Hand team removed a bathroom to increase the size of the space to 11 x 17. Double sound attenuating doors lock sound into the room and keep the rest of the home quiet. A small storage room adjoining the listening room includes a custom built bookshelf for holding records, CDs, and other items.
