The various functional components of the proposed conservatory – dance studio, percussion ensemble rehearsal space, 12 individual rehearsal rooms and 2 group classroom spaces - are organized on two floors around a 150-seat multi-function performance space and connected by a continuous internal circulation “spine”. The varied conditions of perforation and alignment in its exterior brick cladding add a dimension of transparency and ambiguity to its otherwise taut and opaque surface.
