Auburn High School Performing Arts Center
Size: 59,000 sf
Status: completed 2010
Project Awards: Outstanding Design Award American School and University - Educational Interiors Showcase 2010
The 59,000 square-foot Auburn High School Performing Arts Center features a programmable, motorized & automated theatrical rigging and lighting system that is much safer than antiquated rope & pulley systems, especially for student purposes. The color-changing, interior LED lighting system juxtaposed with textured, reflective panels along the sides of the theater, has the capability to completely transform the mood of the auditorium space to supplement what’s happening on stage. A top-of-the-line A/V system coupled with the acoustic ceiling and wall panels greatly enhance the performance quality. Exterior signage, an entrance canopy and visual screen were added to the public entryway that leads to the grand pre-function lobby. Other highlights include new auditorium seating, a removable orchestra pit cover and new back-of-house areas for rehearsal, set-building and storage and dressing rooms.
