Size: 8,200 SF commercial
Completion: Spring 2011
barrientos RYAN provided consultant services for the reconstruction of an existing performing arts theater. The Village Theatre building was constructed in 1913 without a supporting foundation or concrete floor slab. The reconstruction includes a flat floor equipped with new “telescoping” seating retracting to the back wall, thereby making the space multi-functional for classes, rehearsals, and special events. This new configuration also allows Village Theatre to offer cabaret theater with table seating.
The new 8,200 sq. ft. building utilizes refurbished elements taken from the existing façade, including the neon blade sign and cornice. The lobby and gallery public areas feature finished millwork elements constructed from old-growth fir framing lumber salvaged from the demolition of the existing building. The project achieved LEED Silver Certification.
