Amherst College : Amherst, MA

Kirby Theatre and Webster Hall are two central buildings on the campus of Amherst College. We were commissioned to renovate both buildings and to expand the theatre with a new Experimental Theatre. A third component involved designing an arcade that links the two buildings, thus creating a new complex for the performing arts department.

The renovation of Kirby Theatre and the new Experimental Theater provides a state-of-the-art facility that is used by Amherst College during the academic year and rented to performing arts groups during the summer months. The program includes new scenery and costume shops and dressing rooms that are accessible from both buildings.
