  • Company Profile

A new performing arts center for student use re-imagines a historic train depot in Lowell, MA as a vibrant piece of the city, restoring the old structure and celebrating the new. A maple clad egg-shaped core is inserted within the 1876 brick shell to accommodate a proscenium theater, music recital hall, and dance studio. The efficient curved shape of the new insertion serves as the central structural element of the building, supporting new spaces within as well as bracing the restored historic structure and bringing the entirety of the Center.
