About RBDG


More Than Twenty-Five Years of Service

Welcome to Russ Berger Design Group, a firm specializing in acoustical and architectural design for recording studios and broadcast facilities.

What began nearly four decades ago as a one-man show has grown into a diverse team of experienced problem solvers. We bring a proven track record of creativity, responsiveness, and technical expertise to a wide variety of projects including recording and broadcast studios; facilities for entertainment and media content, audio, film, and post production; technical learning environments for higher education; residential theaters; and corporate production spaces.

We have completed more than 2,500 projects from coast to coast, ranging from personal home studios to corporate mega-facilities, and from small remodels to major purpose-built complexes. We are immensely proud of each and every one.

Every project is unique, and we relish the chance to apply our expertise to design spaces and solutions that sound and perform like no place else.

Have a project or acoustical design problem that needs solving? Tell us about it. We love a good challenge.

Our services include:

  • Architectural acoustics
  • Interior design, architectural design, and space planning
  • Sound isolation
  • Room acoustics
  • Noise and vibration control
  • Home theater and critical listening environments
  • Media and presentation systems
  • Performance verification and testing

“At the heart of any great design is a client’s passion. Nothing is more satisfying than creating a space that makes it possible for someone to realize their dreams.”

– Russ Berger
