Noble Street Recording Studio

Noble Street Recording Studio (NSRS) is a professional recording facility equipped with state-of-the-art digital and analog technologies. Beyond the requirements of the high-end recording spaces, NSRS integrates into its vibrant community with ample glazing and an open courtyard.

Located on a remediated brownfield site and with a new green roof, the studios are a sustainably minded addition and renovation to an existing building. The L-shaped building design transformed the former industrial lot, accommodating a courtyard with permeable pavers, bicycle racks and a living green willow wall.

The courtyard is a social gathering space for the studio complete with planned community events and festivities. The green roof has the added benefit of achieving sound attenuation from external noise sources while providing environmental and visual benefits for the adjacent condominiums.

Since it's completion, world renowned artists have recorded here.  Their client list includes Drake, Justin Bieber, Kanye West, The Weeknd, Metric, Feist, and more

The project was awarded a prestigious City of Toronto Urban Design Award of Excellence in 2013.
