BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – The Bronxville High School auditorium was recently restored to its original grandeur with modern amenities with help from Mount Kisco-based architectural firm KG&D Architects, PC.

Over the theater’s 90-year lifetime, many changes have been made including a 1960s renovation that covered the windows and closed the original proscenium. The KG&D team sought to restore the auditorium to its original splendor and sophisticated upgrades were designed to meet 21st century standards. The multi-use, high-performing theater now features new seating configurations, balconies, new theater and HVAC systems, lighting and acoustic enhancements, restoration of the original windows and proscenium, and a new lobby addition.

The KG&D team worked with theater and acoustic specialists to create a cost-effective, energy efficient and sustainable design to improve the overall function, quality and accessibility of the auditorium and surrounding spaces.

The new theater includes these features:

  • A 1,850-square-foot lobby addition that also serves as an instructional space and provides a direct public entrance
  • New larger chairs and increased spacing for comfort, with a total of 508 seats
  • Motorized stage rigging, LED theatrical lighting and integrated audio-visual systems
  • Energy-efficient HVAC system with air conditioning and updated heating and cooling controls
  • Restoration of the original larger proscenium opening and new stage flooring
  • New auditorium floor layout to provide wheelchair accessibility
  • New wood trim and paneling, coffered ceilings and bright interior spaces throughout
  • New wrap-around balcony with improved sightlines
  • New catwalks in the attic to access theater lighting
  • New enlarged lighting control room
  • Exterior terrace overlooking the courtyard

The complete KG&D Architects’ project team included Theatre Projects Consultants, Acoustic Dimensions, Damiano Barile Engineers and The DiSalvo Engineering Group.
