SHOWCASING OUR STUDENTS
Our contemporary performing arts center is a hub for student plays, artwork and creative expression. The 24,000-square-foot facility features a 300-seat auditorium and stage, an art gallery, dance studio, music library, labs, green room, music practice rooms, and office and storage space.
Designed with the future in mind, the building sits snug against a wooded hill to preserve the campus’ open spaces and reduce its overall scale and impact. With a nod to sustainability, a partial sod roof makes for energy efficient insulation and helps with ecological runoff management, while also creating a series of folds to let natural light shine through — contributing to a feeling of movement that expresses the activity within. Inside, bold colors heighten the experience of the performance spaces, gallery walls can be moved to reconfigure the exhibition space, and gorgeous views connect visitors to the surrounding landscape.
