Point Park University - Dance Studio Complex
Two Phases: 2007 - 44,000 square feet - Architecture and interior design for new dance studios, performance and support spaces.
2012 - Interior architecture for the 4th floor of the building to include three additional dance studios.
Designed after extensive benchmarking tours, the Point Park University Dance Studio Complex, is located in Point Park’s urban campus and contains eight dance studios, including a 30’ x 40’ performance space, seating 188.
This three story space, with an entry through the adjacent historic Lawrence Hall, showcases the latest in design and engineering technologies. The deep wall facade and double height windows promote high visibility of the university’s dance program, natural daylighting, and energy conservation through the capture of solar gain to heat the facility.
Project Goals included:
• Premier Teaching Environment
• Studios/Performance Venue
• Alignment of project program and sustainable attributes

The project is LEED-NC Gold certified.
