First , I have no experience and probably will say plenty of wrong and stupid things .
Are you worried about sound travelling out of the space, or simply acoustics in the room? If both , I would think you would have to handle the soundproofing , then the acoustics , I wouldn't think that the two could be combined into a wall . From what I'm imagining you are trying to do , it sounds like you may need to build a wall inside the room walls (room within a room type) with the inner wall built to house the acoustic treatments . Face of the inner wall 12" in from the room wall , with holes for your treatments , allowing the faces of the varying depth absorbers to be flush . From what little I think I've learned you might have a triple leaf problem if you drywalled that face , but maybe doing one of those fabric track systems over the entire thing . I've seen a fabric system that looked like drywall , can't remember the name , but don't know if it's paintable or the acoustic transparency of it , but it was a very fine weave , not like the GoM .Looking forward to being corrected , and apologize in advance for any misinformation , I'm guessing .
If soundproofing isn't a concern , then I would think build the framing of the existing wall out to depth , drywall , keep in mind for fireproofing you may need to drywall the cavities for your acoustic treatments , and flush mount the treatments .
It was like that when I got here
