Our company

Studio D A P

In 2005, Federico Cruz-Barney joined forces with three well-known personalities from different professional backgrounds to found Studio DAP: Hans Verbugt, Richard Denayrou and Jean-Hugues Manoury. All of them share his passion for music, the arts and performance techniques.

With their extensive and proven cultural, scientific and technical skills, they endow it with a singularity that has always proved itself: Studio DAP combines a sensitivity and a relevant know-how for the fine design of the acoustics of performance halls.


Intervention domains

Our experience in room acoustics applies to ergonomic and technical feasibility studies, as well as in the complete development of the project from conception to delivery. It integrates all aspects related to the design of room acoustics:

• Internal acoustic quality and comfort
• Control of noise and vibrations from technical equipment
• Acoustic insulation between spaces

Our approach

Work philosophy

The qualities of our staff, as well as our work philosophy, lead us to offer our services very soon in the course of the project.

Working with the client, the architect and the theater consultant of the project, continuing with all the project design phases, including the construction supervision, allow us the best adaptation of the acoustic design to the artistic project and the architectural concept, thus guaranteeing a harmonious and integrated result.

Acoustic follow-up

And then...

At Studio D A P we are convinced that the success of a project does not end with the reception and its delivery.

As the success of a room depends both on the relevant use of technical capabilities as well as on how well they adapt to the programme, we also offer post-opening services and assistance to the client for bringing the best out of the acoustic capabilities of the hall. This is particularly important in the case of variable acoustic systems and stage acoustical shells.
