Dirk Noy, general manager of the Walters-Storyk Design Group Europe, reported that the design group has been awarded the commission for the redesign and reconstruction of the GTRK Kultura Sound Recording Studio Complex in Moscow.  Studios 1 and 3 were originally built in 1938, while Studio 5 was added in 1968. Russia's entire national radio music archive, over 300,000 tapes, were recorded at the studio. The redesigned complex will be dedicated to music recording and live broadcasting.

Phase 1 of the project, the 1,500-square-foot Studio 3, including voice-over booth and control room, has already begun. The studio will be primarily used for radio drama productions, overdubbing and Foley work in all existing surround sound formats.

Phase 2, the remodeling of Studio 5-A, a 7,500-square-foot hall capable of hosting live audiences of 150, will commence later this year. Creation of new surround sound control rooms with a centered machine room are also planned for this studio.

Phase 3, the renovation of 4,800-square-foot Studio 1 and control room 1, will begin before the end of the year.

WSDG U.S.-based partners, architect John Storyk and chief designer Scott Yates are collaborating with Noy on the GTRK Kultura project. Switzerland's J+C Intersonic will serve as principal audio systems/equipment consultant, engineer, trainer and supplier. Local general project supervision, construction management, equipment supply and installation services will be undertaken by I.S.P.A. Engineering, which is based in Moscow.
