Saint Paul’s School

A soaring space for theatre and dance was designed to grace this private school’s lovely hillside campus. The music and adjoining dance buildings were designed as barn-shaped structures to match those in the surrounding countryside. The most noticeable architectural feature of this design is that it comes in two parts: the architect separated the music and dance buildings and connected them by an (invisible) underground base containing rehearsal spaces and offices for both departments.

Multiple levels, interior partitions that look like sets and a flexible configuration helped to make this space easy to set up and reconfigure for different kinds of theatrical presentations.
