Education, Performing Arts
The Prenatt Music Center is the first in a series of new facilities for the arts at this private boys’ school. Its siting organizes two disparate parts of the campus. On one side, its wings reach out to the school’s athletic fields. On the other, it defines the edges of the main campus quadrangle and a future Arts Quad. At the building’s center a glass pavilion organizes the interior spaces and can serve as a venue for school events.
Program: Community spaces for music students, and for the school at large; a choir rehearsal/performance space; an orchestral rehearsal space; a large classroom; five practice rooms of various sizes; administrative and faculty offices; a recording studio; an elevator large enough to easily accommodate a grand piano; outdoor terraces; utility spaces.
