College of the Holy Cross Brooks Concert Hall/Arts Studio

Location

Worcester, Massachusetts

Area

9,000 square feet

Key Features

  • The renovations to Brooks Concert Hall, used by the Music Department for concerts and recitals, greatly improved acoustics and created a more intimate seating arrangement
  • The 4,500 square foot renovation includes new horseshoe shaped seating for 180, new risers and lighting grid
  • Brooks Hall is located in the original 1843 chapel, Fenwick Hall, where original features still exist. The design intentionally contrasts the new design from the original
  • Part of an ambitious summer construction project, the Millard Arts Department renovation and additions includes a large skylight studio and individual independent study studio spaces totaling 4,500 square feet
  • The expansion addresses program needs that surfaced in a previous study of the college’s performing and fine arts facilities
