Material and its Properties
The reclaimed wood in conjunction with the designed space creates an optimized environment for acoustical performance.
The wood for the interior concert hall and lobby of the building was reclaimed from a demolished brewery. The blend of pine, hemlock, and spruce create a distinguished pattern and texture that provides a warm, but exciting glow to the spaces.
