Julliard Rehearsal Hall

Built in 1969 as part of the massive Lincoln Center project, The Juilliard School (New York City) was in need of a renovation to bring it into the 21st century, and the architects of Diller Scofidio + Renfro and JaffeHolden acousticians were tapped for the renovations and construction.

Once finished, the school will have gained 39,000 square feet of new space, including a new 3,500-square-foot Rehearsal Hall (opening on October 12, pictured) that can be used by a 100-piece orchestra and 150-person chorus simultaneously. The 35-foot-high space was inserted in an existing rooftop courtyard, and the hall's sound has been isolated by massive structures modeled into a floating box-in-box design. Twenty-foot-tall tunable acoustic doors line a large portion of the surrounding walls.

A new 2,000-square-foot Rosemary & Meredith Willson Theater (opening October 6) features complete sound-isolation constructions and an interior panel system made of perforated wood. Other work included new and renovated teaching studios, classrooms, practice rooms and offices; a 1,100-square-foot Writing and Communication Center; and a state-of-the-art music technology center with two rehearsal rooms and a teaching/engineering studio that is connected to the Rosemary & Meredith Willson Theater.
