Kiddie Auditorium

This project is a full renovation of an existing 2400-square-foot lecture hall at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ, which provided increased seating capacity, updated finishes, modernized learning technology, and mechanical and electrical systems upgrades.

Implemented in conjuncture with the university’s academic schedule, the design maximizes allowable seating by providing a new row at the rear of the hall and new centralized aisles with handrails, resulting in 200 auditorium seats and 6 ADA-compliant seating positions. Lecture hall acoustical treatments are integrated with the new sound system to reduce reverberation and improve sightlines of new A/V screens located at sidewalls.
