The Noise Floor is located in a beautiful heritage building in Ladysmith, British Columbia on Vancouver Island.
Our live room is 629 sq. ft. with 11 ft. ceilings and a large stage. The room is big enough to accommodate a large band, while cozy and comfortable for a solo performer. Soundproofed shutters open on our 5 ft. tall windows to let in plenty of natural light in between takes. 100+ year old original wood floors, plaster walls and unique shape make it one of the most exciting sounding recording rooms on Vancouver Island.
With our lighting options and shutters, the vibe can be bright, dark, trippy, etherel, totally rock n’ roll - whatever is inspiring to you.
Our separate control room measures approximately 170 sq. ft and has a view of one of the fish ponds. It’s a comfortable room conducive to listening.
Our lounge is comfortable and eclectic with lots of interesting things to look at. We also have a full kitchen for your convenience.
We offer two sleeping bunks for overnight guests as well as a pullout couch, sleeping cot and 2 comfortable foam mattresses, meaning that 6 can sleep comfortably before anyone ends up on the floor!
Please feel free to use the shower and laundry facilities. Our beautiful garden is a great place to relax between or after takes. Sip a tea on the bridge over the fish pond, or roast some marshmallows at night in our stone fireplace.
