Awards: 2013 AIA-SFV Citation Award 2012 American School & University Outstanding Design Award
We were the Architects, Theatre Consultant and Acoustician for this competition winning design of a music practice venue and a 200 seat black box theatre. The theatre contains a new flexible seating platform system which allows a great number of staging modes but which easily and quickly disappears into a flat floor at minimal expense. The theatre also has large sliding doors which open out to a natural grass 500 person amphitheatre and its stage. This lovely center was completed July 1, 2011.
