Description:
Queen’s University tasked the design team with creating a world-class acoustic performing arts hall in their new Arts building. This multi-disciplinary effort had stringent acoustic criteria that prohibited many common lighting equipment and installation techniques. There were no resonant cavities allowed (i.e. no plenum space), and the room was double jacketed in a concrete space-within-a-space. Fluorescent fixtures were precluded due to ballast noise, and all LED and Halogen sources were tested prior to specification for noise screening. Even the back of house rooms had stringent criteria to comply with: no light leaks, blue lights for performance back-stage movement, as well as working and emergency features.
Other spaces included a large open lobby, music practice rooms, theatre screening rooms, an art gallery, computer labs, performer change rooms, lounges, numerous offices, sound and control rooms, and ancillary specialized service spaces.
