Studzinski Recital Hall
Brunswick, ME

This project involved the innovative reuse of McKim, Mead and White’s historic Curtis Swimming Pool Building by inserting of a new 285-seat Recital Hall, with world class acoustics into the volume of the former pool. The Hall is a warm, intimate space that celebrates community among audience and performers. The hall’s design accommodates a range of musical programs including classical music, jazz, world and electronic music, and multimedia screenings. (19,000 g.s.f.; 285 seats).
