Project Details: 109,000 sf
This building anchors an important gateway to a new part of the UNCW campus. The massing of the building was critical to respect the street frontage on one side and the real “front door” on the other side at the termination of a main pedestrian axis on campus. The building houses a complex variety of uses for the arts department including fine arts, theater, and music. Arts and music studios are contained in the teaching wing of the building while the main hall contains a 300 seat proscenium theater, 300 seat concert hall, an experimental “black box” theater, and arts exhibit spaces.
