Performing Arts Center

Villanova University | Villanova, Pennsylvania

Villanova’s multi-phase, multi-project building campaign along Lancaster Avenue will include a state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center to provide the Theatre Department with expanded and modern facilities. The building, which is pursuing LEED Silver Certification, will feature a 300-seat proscenium theater with a full fly loft as well as a 140-seat courtyard theater with flexible seating that can be customized for multiple configurations. The largest rehearsal space will be equipped as a ‘performance lab’ that can accommodate small audiences. Inside the generously sized lobby will be a café supported by a catering kitchen that will allow the space to accommodate not just performance audiences, but special events as well. Back of house support will include dressing rooms, production shops and rehearsal spaces.

Completed in association with Robert A.M. Stern Architects.
