Project Scope:
Originally built in 1922, the Bronxville School auditorium was in need of reconfiguration and restoration. The design team was tasked with restoring the beauty and functionality of the original auditorium while incorporating 21st-century design elements. The project redesigned the floor elevation and seating layout and created a fully accessible stage and seating area with a wraparound balcony. The restoration of the proscenium, the open fabric-paneled ceiling and the addition of a retractable acoustic curtain in the attic, result in an acoustically flexible space that is suitable for music and spoken performance events. Another key feature is a lobby addition, which functions as a gathering and instructional space and creates a separate and secure public entrance.
