May 2012 l 17 SPAIN Studio


A BRAND new facility in Valencia, Spain, for the Berklee College of Music features acoustic design by Walters- Storyk Design Group (WSDG), an international provider of studio design and acoustical consultancy. The facility is one of two major concurrent projects for the American music college and WSDG. In addition to the Valencia


campus, WSDG is designing a new 16-storey, $100 million (€757,000) structure in Boston for the college. “We have a long-standing


relationship with WSDG, and with architect/acoustician John Storyk who designed Electric Lady Studios for Jimi Hendrix among many world-class studios all over the world,” Berklee president Roger H Brown commented. “In addition to designing a number of teaching


studios and media rooms for our Boston campus, Mr Storyk is a visiting professor for our MP&E (music production and engineering) Department.” In Valencia, Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava designed


Berklee’s ultra-modern new building featuring an academic area and a music technology complex. The music technology complex includes a recording studio equipped with a 48-channel Euphonix System 5


The new Spanish campus is beautifully designed, both inside and out

digital console, Grace Design microphone preamps, Genelec 5.1 surround-sound monitoring, and a Pro Tools HD3 system. “Commissions on the scale of


Berklee’s Valencia and Boston projects are rare in today’s economic environment, but these will be extraordinary campuses,” remarked Storyk. “We engaged the most advanced predictive acoustic modelling software and have incorporated the latest acoustical and technical developments in every facet of our design to ensure the highest degree of future- proofing for these studios and teaching labs.” Storyk, a founding partner of


WSDG, has previously built private studios for Whitney Houston, Bob Marley and Ace Frehley of Kiss, among others. www.berkleevalencia.org www.wsdg.com
