Melrose Sound Studios is ten Live/Work units designed exclusively for musicians. Each apartment includes its own built in sound studio and control room/vocal booth. Rehearse and record whenever you want, 24/7. While you’re playing to your heart’s content in your sound studio, your roommate can be sleeping peacefully just a few feet away in their bedroom.
These Live/Work spaces were converted to code and with permits. They are legal for Live/Work occupancy, with an Occupancy Permit issued by the city of Oakland.
Melrose Sound Studios began its life in 1945 as the Oakland Ring Shop Garage. Designed by well-known Oakland Architect Clay Burrell, Melrose is built in the Streamlined Moderne style, and joins other Clay Burrell-designed commercial and industrial buildings such as the California Hotel and the White Building, both of which are on the National Register of Historic Places.”
