Eastside Preparatory School, TALI Hall

Public47 Architects, LLC - Kirkland, WA

Eastside Prep’s new 105,000 sf performing arts and educational building is called TALI Hall, named after the school’s “Think. Act. Lead. Innovate” motto. The facility houses a 15,000 SF flexible performance space with set shop, control booth, dressing rooms and wardrobe storage. The theatre is designed to accommodate a variety of productions, performances (theatrical and musical) and educational opportunities and accommodates up to 650 people. The space can be partitioned from standard theatre configurations to serve smaller events and as classrooms. Additionally, the building includes 25,000 SF for multi-purpose classrooms and meeting spaces, as well as art studios, music rooms for choir and band, administration areas with offices and meeting spaces, and below-grade parking.

ACOUSTICAL: GBG provided acoustical consulting for all project phases: SD, DD, CD, and CA. This included authoring the schematic narrative for acoustics, outlining the acoustical performance requirements for sound isolation between classrooms and performing spaces, reverberation control, and background sound levels associated with the mechanical systems. GBG provided recommendations and detailing for construction necessary to acoustically separate the various spaces with recommendations for floor, wall and ceiling construction, for operable partitions, and provided recommendations and performance specifications for surface finishes necessary to control noise and reverberation.

Seattle Children's Theater

Seattle Children's Theater - Eve Alvord Theater

Bassetti - Seattle, WA

The conversion of the 1962 Seattle World's Fair multi-purpose room into a 280-seat theater required gutting the space and creating tiered bench seating.

Noise levels from the Seattle Center-where rock concerts and screens from the amusement rides are common-were evaluated and Greenbusch provided recommendations for building modification to ensure these sounds would not be apparent during a performance.

Absorptive surface finishes were added to create an intimate setting for the children's drama.
