Our Recharge Rooms are immersive
bio-experiential spaces designed for recovery.
Studio Elsewhere’s Recharge Rooms are immersive biophilic private spaces that include music, scent, lighting, and sound, designed with research support from the Abilities Research Center at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai to address trauma, anxiety, and stress and improve cognitive performance. We partner with studio-lab EMBC on original music scores utilizing effective psychoacoustic principles to create custom sonicscape for these environments.
This bio-experiential technology has been designed for elite athletes in the past to assist with emotional regulation and mental focus. The experience is entirely voice-activated.
An independent study was done on frontline healthcare workers using our Recharge Rooms during the COVID-19 surge in New York. After a single 15-minute experience in Studio Elsewhere’s Recharge Room, participants experienced an average 60.0% reduction in self-reported stress levels.
Studio Elsewhere’s Recharge Rooms have been featured in The New York Times, Fast Company, Wired, The Guardian, The Today Show (NBC), CBS, NHKTV (Japan), Advance, Road to Resilience podcast, KNX 1070, Travel Nursing, Facilities Net, and other outlets.
"Upon entering the immersive room, it was apparent that Studio Elsewhere had developed a profoundly special, nurturing space that promotes compassion amid pervasive trauma. Each feature of the room was incredibly thoughtful and intentionally customized. Experiencing the room offered me personal solitude, finding meaning and purpose in my work. Truly, I felt restored and confident I could leave the space to start anew. The space elicits safety, connectedness, and hope, resulting in experiential empowerment that cannot always be fostered with words alone."
