Victor Valley Union High School District
2013 - 2019
The new two-story Administration and Theater building will provide the campus with a new identity and connection to the community. The center lobby serves as both the school’s main entrance for visitors and theater guests. The south wing houses administration and student support services on the first floor and classroom space on the second. The north wing houses a multi-use theater with retractable stadium seating for 300, a floor level stage and full lighting and audio visual systems. The theater is flanked by dressing rooms, a drama classroom and backstage area. The boomerang shape of the building creates an intimate court yard interior to the campus for outdoor gathering and performance activities.
CSDA also provided acoustical designs for the building, with specific attention focused on the performing arts spaces. A detailed analysis of room acoustics, sounds isolation, and HVAC noise/vibration reduction was performed. Designs to enhance speech intelligibility, while retaining the theater’s musicality, were provided. Sound isolation recommendations were tailored to provide a high level of noise reduction between the theater and adjacent spaces.
