Question new house - new studio - help needed

im getting a new house soon and begin to plan a new recording/mixing studio. i want to integrate the studio in the house and need to make some basic decision.

I have three options...

1. integration to existing cellar (hight only 2,46yards)
2. build a smaller room to use in combination with cellar
3. build a bigger room independet from cellar

from 1-3 it will cost more...

what would you do? does the building cost of a new room give a good return?

i attach all variants with a footprint

any recommendations welcome

I think all of those options are workable, though I'd be concerned about the small size of some of the rooms. You want to make sure that the rooms are at least 2500 cubic feet (about 93 cubic yards).

These days I generally prefer larger, one-room studios, so if your budget allows I'd probably gravitate toward the 7.1y x 5.4y x 3.8y room. This room is definitely big enough to sound good when properly treated.
