Services:Architecture Interior Design Construction Administration Master Planning Graphics Construction Administration
This project was a renovation to existing recreational space and it home to the SMU band. The 10,082 sq project is known as Band Hall. The hall features a rehearsal hall which accommodates a 150 member band. Hahnfeld enhanced the practice rooms for the band ensemble rehearsal space as well as adding additional storage around the perimeter for band equipment. The hall also features renovated office space and a conference room. Part of the renovation includes acoustically treated practice rooms to limit the sound of other existing space in the hall because a recreational basketball court sits above the space.
Band Hall is also equipped with a performance plaza that is surrounded by sound proof walls. The hall also features band memorabilia in glass showcases, a music storage library, and a loading dock. Band hall is located facing the new residential commons complex.
