Richard Turlington Architects Project - Vassar College, Skinner Hall

Richard Turlington Architects led the renovation of this 500 seat recital hall which included the installation of a newly commissioned pipe organ, creation of a new organ loft, restoration of the antiquated stage, acoustical improvements to the proscenium and general refurbishment of existing finishes. The Hall is used for a variety of different types of concerts and performances throughout the year.  Its current success is due to the combination of sensitive and unobtrusive acoustical enhancements to the stage area with simple and elegant detailing.

This entire project was completed during the summer break between semesters.  It was also a pet project of the then President Frances Fergguson who spent a lot of time with Richard Turlington Architects discussing details, design ideas and colors.
