Project Description

The Thornton School of Music At University of California has a new rehearsal room. The Alice and Eleonore Schoenfeld Symphonic Hall is sized for full symphony orchestra and accommodates wind ensemble, percussion ensembles, and a variety of smaller groups. The elegant new room was built within the shell of the former Harold Lloyd Sound Stage, with entirely new interiors designed by Kirkegaard Associates in collaboration with Design Architect Dianna Wong and Architect of Record Lehrer Architects / Westlake Reed Leskosky. Movable acoustic curtains allow the users to tune the room for various uses, including high-level recording. A new AV system supports lectures, and a new air conditioning system provides quiet comfort.
