ANAHEIM CA. The 2017 NAMM TEC Studio Design Project Award was presented to WSDG-Walters-Storyk Design Group for the Boston Symphony Orchestra Control Room on Saturday January 21st at the Hilton Anaheim Hotel’s Pacific Ballroom.
To date twenty-nine, WSDG studio design projects (including four multiple-entry nominations), have competed for TEC Awards since the event debuted in 1985. The 2017 presentation marks WSDG’s eleventh TEC win. Coincidentally, WSDG’s second 2017 nomination was also for a classical music venue, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra Synchron Stage in Austria. WSDG received the 2016 TEC for Paul Epworth’s The Church Studio in London, and the 2015 TEC for the Berklee College of Music, 160 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston, MA.
“The TEC Award is particularly significant to us, because it represents the peer recognition which we hold in the highest regard,” WSDG founding partner, John Storyk said. “We are privileged to have been called to this podium so frequently, and we share this honor with our clients who, like BSO and VSL have extremely high standards. They push us to do our best work, and their commitment to excellence inspires our creative team. We also deeply appreciate the TEC committee for nominating our work.”
