Welcome to the Wes Lachot Design website. We are a design firm based in Chapel Hill, NC, specializing in studio design and acoustic consulting. We do all sorts of Projects, large and small, ranging from garage studios and home additions to large, multi-room recording facilities.
With over twenty years experience as a recording engineer/producer, Wes brings to his Projects a wide range of practical knowledge and insight. Our control rooms are known for their musically accurate acoustics, and are used for critical mixing by well-known producers and mixers. Recently, we were selected to rework the acoustics for Control Rooms B and C at the legendary Electric Lady Studios in Greenwich Village. Other high-profile Projects include Saddle Creek Records' new ARC Studios in Omaha, Nebraska, and Mitch Easter's Fidelitorium, in Kernersville, N.C.
For modest budget studio Projects we are available for consulting, either by phone or on-site, anywhere from coast to coast. If you are contemplating a project, checking out building sites or existing buildings for re-use, we can help make the project go smoothly and successfully by getting involved in the process early on. We are involved in all phases of project design, including site selection and assessment, blueprint preparation, construction supervision, speaker and equipment selection, and wiring design. We also specify and provide acoustical materials, and work closely with RPG Diffusor Systems in designing custom acoustical solutions for many Projects.
Recently there has been a trend toward more privately owned studios in residential locations. These are often attached or semi-attached to the main house, but are sometimes freestanding buildings. For example, take a look at the private studio in the Projects section of the website. This studio was built as a ground-up two-story building, but is attached to the main house by way of a glass sunroom.
Give us a call or email us -- we'd love to discuss your plans and ideas, and to see if we can help you with your project in any way. We can work with local architects, engineers and contractors, and we take pride in the high level of site supervision and attention to detail that we bring to each building project. We have experienced professionals available who can travel to your location for room testing, construction oversight, wiring, technical assistance, etc.
