FROST AMPHITHEATER Stanford University • Palo Alto, CA

LONGITUDINAL SECTION 4


Known as the hidden jewel on campus, Frost is an historic outdoor amphitheater that has hosted renowned musicians, speakers and university gatherings since 1937. Once a venue to see the greats of their time and protest in a time of war, the 20-acre site lay dormant due to its lack of amenities and infrastructure. The challenge was to seamlessly integrate the landscape with a state of the art performance structure to once again attract world-class musicians with massive stage productions. The project includes construction of a new stage house with platform, fixed canopy, performer amenities, production support and open-air terraces; one-story restroom buildings at the main entry; a two-story secondary restroom building at the rear of the bowl; a loading dock with ramp and tunnel to the stage house; a pedestrian tunnel to connect the entry plaza and bowl; a mix position in the bowl; all new infrastructure, paved plazas and site accessible pathways. Building: 11,670 SF Site: 871,200 SF Capacity: 8,000 persons

ROBLE THEATER & ARTS COMPLEX Stanford University • Palo Alto, CA

ARCADE & COURTYARD

Recipient of the Preservation Design Award in 2018, Roble has been lauded for its transformational and historical impact, preserving the historical building complex while adapting the interior spaces to house an expansive arts complex. Built in 1931, it is considered a significant historic resource, and all work performed conforms to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the rehabilitation of historic structures (SOIS). This fast track renovation was designed and coordinated in the field, yielding the following programmatic improvements: a state of the art black-box theater that creates a changeable space for various performance types;“Art Gym” which is a flexible workspace for non-arts majors providing multi-media performance areas, green screens, theatrical capabilities, sound booth and small meeting rooms. The rehabilitation also included refurbishment and aesthetic upgrades to the dance studios and administration wing with modern infrastructure upgrades. Building: 53,986 SF Site: 62,854 SF Construction Cost: $27M 8

HISTORIC

BEFORE

A STATE-OF-THE-ART BLACK BOX THEATER Because of the historic nature of this original gymnasium, all work within this space is fully reversible per the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards. •

State of the art technology capability: pipe grid throughout performance space to support lighting and AV infrastructure, as well as acoustical reflectors and performance-specific scenery and curtains.

Support spaces include a green room, dressing rooms, scenery assembly space, dimmer room, storage space, and a fully integrated raised control room.

Acoustical design components including NC-25 noise criterion for all building systems; provision of sound isolation from arcade, adjacent street, and support spaces ; sound absorption balanced with reflection for enhancing spoken word projection.

Once an iconic movie house in Silicon Valley, we envisioned the exterior paying homage to its place in the community while creating a multi-purpose, cutting edge venue inside. Due to my expertise in performance spaces, I was hand selected to interview with the principal to secure this client and lead the project. The first floor will contain a lobby with elevated ceiling, ticket office, tiered audience viewing and seating area, bar, stage and restrooms. The facility’s second floor will provide a mezzanine and balcony viewing area, bar, restrooms and gathering area overlooking the lobby and street. The basement will have dressing rooms, a warming kitchen, offices, and storage.

With a growing population of students, expanding curriculum and dilapidated facilities, this thoughtful expansion answered the programmatic needs of the school. It provided a venue to accommodate the entire student body for such events as assemblies and graduation ceremonies. But most importantly, the facility’s dance studio and fitness room have freed up classrooms that were once used for those activities. The renovation of, and addition to, the existing gymnasium included a complete upgrade to all building systems, including furnishings and equipment. Construction of an auxiliary gym, a canopy, a locker room building, a fitness and dance studio building, a new plaza for student drop-off, a secondary plaza for gatherings, and new fencing/gates for security.

Las Lomitas Elementary School • Las Lomitas Elementary School District • Atherton, CA

Las Lomitas Elementary, adjacent to Stanford campus, is an award-winning school in the Silicon Valley and ranked among the top in the state. For this expansion, we envisioned a complex of buildings that provides a welcoming plaza to the school with multiple courtyards for developmental stages of learning. The project includes the construction of a two-story classroom building with one story administrative wing and three one-story classroom buildings. Sitework for a new entry plaza with parking and student drop-off, kindergarten play yard and courtyard with free standing canopy. Building: 24,029 SF Site: 140,806 SF Construction Cost Est: $25M

Originally built in 1976 as the premier theater in the San Jose area, the facility sat untouched for over 35 years. The original project proposal called for a standard building infrastructure and finishes upgrade, but we saw an opportunity to create a captivating public entrance, resolve the lack of accessibility, reverse the vastly undersized lobby and public areas by providing an addition with no extra cost to the client.

The addition includes an elevator and an expansion of the lobby to feature enhanced ticketing and restroom areas. The concrete tiers in the theater were reconfigured to provide accessible seating and platform modified to allow handicap access to the orchestra pit. The key defining features of the interior were refurbished, while all other finishes and building systems were replaced.
