TEC Awards

AND THE 2016 TEC STUDIO DESIGN PROJECT AWARD GOES TO…
 
WSDG FOR PAUL EPWORTH’S
THE CHURCH STUDIO IN LONDON

TEC Awards

On Saturday evening, January 23rd the 2016 NAMM TEC Studio Design Project Award was presented to WSDG-Walters-Storyk Design Group, for The Church Studio in London.  Designed for Grammy & Academy Award-winning producer Paul Epworth, The Church has already hosted sessions for such major artists as U2 and Adele, who shot her “When We Were Young” video there.  Built within a 160-year-old cathedral, The Church Studios represent the epitome of ultra-modern elegance.

“We were privileged to have the opportunity to work on a studio with the historical significance of The Church,” architect/acoustician John Storyk remarked. “And to have collaborated with Paul Epworth and the Miloco Builds team, led by Pete Hofmann.  This TEC Award represents a project that benefitted from a tremendous joint effort."
 
“The Church marks WSDG’s first footprint in London. Paul was very intrigued by our innovative Jungle City monitor configuration, and we customized an extremely effective system for him.  He also worked closely with WSDG partner Beth Walters on a vastly programmable LED lighting system. Installed in the totally white Studio 2 Control Room and Studio 3 Writers Room, it provides infinite mood enhancing color options; it’s a huge aesthetic boon to creativity,” Storyk adds.

Following the design and construction stage, WSDG partners Dirk Noy and (Grammy-winner) Renato Cipriano flew to London from Basil, Switzerland and Belo Horizonte, Brazil respectively, to perform final measurements, confirm acoustic accuracy and fine-tune the new rooms.
 
Commenting on the renovation, Paul Epworth enthused, “I was very impressed with Jungle City’s monitoring, and I wanted to be the first to build a WSDG room in London for our international artists, producers and engineer clients.  Bringing WSDG in to design two of our rooms was the first step, and the collaboration with Miloco has been an incredibly successful team effort,” he said.

TEC AWARD 2016

Since the TEC Awards were introduced in 1985, a total of 29 WSDG studio design projects have been nominated (including three multiple nominations), over the course of thirty one Awards events.  The 2016 presentation marks WSDG’s tenth TEC win.  “We are deeply appreciative of this recognition by our peers,” Storyk concluded, “and especially grateful to the TEC committee for nominating our work so often.”
