LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PROJECT TYPE: Acoustical Consulting
CLIENT: Lehrer Architects
CONSTRUCTION YEAR: 2015-2017
CSDA is working with Lehrer Architects on the conversion of Hershenson Hall into the Katz Pavilion, a “Sports, Art and Culture” space. The new pavilion will be a
multi-purpose space which will function as a gym and host events such as small performances and weddings. The project comprises of a renovation and an addition that will incorporate large operable glass walls. The acoustical design objectives are to provide an inclusive acoustical environment which fosters a sense of togetherness and encourages participation, promotes the ability to hear faculty instructions by reducing overall noise buildup, and support sound system clarity for both the permanent PA system and outside sound reinforcement systems. CSDA is coordinating with the Architect and A/V consultant to incorporate acoustical finishes to achieve these objectives while satisfying the aesthetic vision of the project. Sound isolation and noise control of MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) equipment are also being addressed.
