"2011 has been a watershed year for the Walters-Storyk Design Group," notes company co-principal Beth Walters. "We are extremely fortunate to maintain a project schedule that doubles as a magnet for attracting high-end assignments. And we are fully aware of the contributions our associates make to our ongoing success. In recognition of the invaluable roles they play in our efficiency, bottom line and esprit de corps, three key team members, CFO Nancy Flannery, a 21-year WSDG veteran, and Project Managers, Romina Larregina (10 years) and Joshua Morris (7 years) have been named partners in our growing firm."

Completion of Ann Mincieli's instantly iconic Jungle City Studios, a major new Oven Studio complex for Alicia Keys, and Village Studios an important production complex in Guangzhou, China, coupled with a series of high-end personal studios including: Cynthia Daniels' MonkMusic in East Hampton, and elegant project studios in Connecticut and Vermont illustrate continuing strength in both the home and facility-for-hire sectors.

On the domestic education front, WSDG completed five additions to The Art Institutes' on-going national teaching studio expansion program (twenty and counting). The firm is also developing a significant number of technology rooms for the Berklee College of Music's largest-ever teaching studio expansion, a 12 story building in Boston and a major new international campus in Valencia, Spain (spring, 2012). WSDG Latin America recently completed multiple high technology suites for the Artes Building, a seven-story addition to The Vatican's Javeriana University in Bogota, Colombia.

WSDG Worldwide:
The scale and complexity of WSDG's international workload vividly reflects the firm's array of capabilities. Dirk Noy and Gabriel Hauser of the Swiss office recently completed a significant acoustic upgrade for the KKL Luzern Concert Hall, and a compelling design for Symphonic Studios, an elegant three-room studio 30 minutes from Zurich (featuring a striking interior design by Beth Walters). Current Swiss projects include: Little Big Beat Mastering in Austria, (with WSDG Brazil's Renato Cipriano); and the development of a new audio system for Switzerland's Cathedral St. Ursen, including full broadcast inter-connectivity. The Swiss and Brazil offices are also collaborating on four auditoriums and a full-scale theater for The Tehran Book Garden. Longer than six football fields laid end-to-end, this will be one of the largest structures ever built in Iran.

Sergio and Sylvia Molho of WSDG Buenos Aires report an equally prodigious project schedule. Assignments include: Mexico's recently completed world-class Artco Recording Studios; Disney's new 15000 sq. ft. Panamericana Studios, TV production complex in Buenos Aires; and, acoustic consulting for Uruguay's Hilton Garden Inn. Earlier this year WSDG BA created MTV Networks' Latin America Studio Complex and, an elegant studio for Buenos Aires-based Roma and Romma Record label.

WSDG Brazil chief Renato Cipriano has enjoyed an equally extended period of exceptional assignments. Highlights include numerous acoustic and A/V projects including an innovative acoustic treatment for the pool house of a luxurious villa in Belo Horizonte; and a major production/post production complex for TV Globo the world's 2nd largest TV broadcast company.

WSDG Brazil is currently developing the critical audio and video systems designs for three major soccer stadiums: Known as the 'World Temple of Soccer,' Maracanã Stadium in Rio is Brazil's largest sports ground, with seating for 82.238 fans; Mineirão Stadium will be Brazil's 2nd largest soccer arena (75.783 seats); and, the Independência Stadium is currently being retrofitted as a polo training facility for FIFA's 2014 World Cup.

"We are extremely proud to maintain this demanding international schedule, and that our new offices in Spain and Germany are now contributing to our whirlwind of worldwide activity," John Storyk concludes. "With forty + years of experience and 3000+ projects in our portfolio, we have also built a world-class cadre of designers, project managers, and systems installation experts. Every assignment presents its own idiosyncratic challenges and rewards. Our system of pooling the creative design, system integration and project management assets of all our offices is a textbook example of international cooperation. For us, the art of collaboration is a key element of our design work, and we are privileged to be associated with so many high profile clients."
