Some kind of inverse duck could work.

Joke!
Not sure without doing crazy things with the laws of physics that's doable. Nearest would a spring style reverb with tubes and springs etc.

These two related threads trying to solve the same issue?:

All kinds of room acoustics and reverb VSTs out there, emulating different times of environment.

Another physical reverb of sorts is the plate reverb. Both could be used in a small room. Neither is using the room acoustics.

Make the room about 585 feet wide which gives you roughly one second of travel time to the wall and back. Or you could just use a delay. You could also potentially do it a very long length of coiled hose if memory serves.

Miniaturize yourself. I got a hot deal on a shrink ray for you. It's a steal at only half a million bucks.

A million years ago before digital audio I read an article about a delay through tubing... I actually bought some tubing and a couple of electret microphone modules (two for stereo), but I never built it. The one in the article was about 50 feet (about 50 milliseconds). I imagine there would be a lot of loss over 1000 feet and it might not work, and 1000 feet of tubing would be expensive!

But seriously, now it's super-easy to do digitally, and even though delays are almost always used to make an echo effect, everybody calls the effect delay, not echo.

You need to treat it to a computer, Reaper and decent digital delay, ReaDelay will do the job nicely.

Alternatively you could seal the room and pump almost all the air out. Sound travels more slowly when there are less molecules to transport it.
