To achieve an optimum layout, the design seamlessly combined new and existing facilities.

Multi-use foyer spaces connect to the existing music suite and restore a historical connection to Bellevue Road.

Great consideration was also given to student safety. Significant seismic requirements for isolation and geotechnical stability were imposed during construction, and the use of expansion joints between each of the existing structures and the auditorium makes it a seismically independent building that allows for movement in an earthquake.
