Punahou School, Dillingham Hall

This dramatic contemporary renovation for the Honolulu private preparatory school completely upgraded and improved the theatre. The 800-seat Dillingham Hall was originally built in 1929 as a lecture hall.

Collaborating with Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer, architects for the renovation, FDA designed and specified new stage lighting systems, including controls and distribution, concert lighting, and rigging. Other improvements included a new orchestra shell and renovated support space for back-of-house functions. The facility is used for music and drama.
