Creating a dramatic and celebratory building

The Tahoe Regional Arts Foundation challenged us to create a word-class building worthy of showcasing traditional and new visual and performing arts. Our team went to work creating a dramatic and celebratory building, true to its purpose and worthy of its majestic surrounding landscape. Our sculpture-like building feels natural in its environment and from a distance blends in rather than alter the visual lines of the valley. The 84,000+ SF complex contains three primary theatres and other space for diverse programming and multi-use events. It is designed as a regional theatre complex to complement surrounding community theatres and existing arts events with programming that can accommodate world-class, year-round performances and cultural opportunities.
