Seattle Opera at the Center

Lewis delivered this 100,000-square-foot rehearsal, support and office building for the Seattle Opera adjoining McCaw Hall. Facilities include the Tagney-Jones Hall for small performances, two 39-foot-tall rehearsal rooms that accommodate full sets, smaller practice rooms, a 4,500-square-foot costume shop with windows for public viewing, offices, retail, scene assembly and industrial arts such as welding.

The exterior features an architectural patterned aluminum scrim set one foot from the building enclosure. Sustainable features include a series of bioswales for natural stormwater filtration. A new concrete bridge accesses an expanded loading dock, built while maintaining access to the existing hall.
