A Noise Within
(# 571)
Images Description Credits
This project gives new life to the nationally-recognized Stuart Pharmaceutical Building from  1958. The former corporate office and laboratory complex is transformed into a classical repertory theater featuring a full auditorium, stage, and supporting spaces, while showcasing significant architectural features of the façade and public lobby spaces. A new third-level addition complements the original historic façade not by directly mimicking it, but by retaining its structural geometry. This is apparent in its formal basis in the original column grid, as expressed in the glazing pattern and steel trellis structure wrapping around one half. It also translates, in reduced scale, the original elevation’s bifurcation into transparent garden screen and opaque building screen with the stepping-back of the building mass and introduction of the transparent trellis element. This story of this project is one of restraint and respect of the merits of the original historic structure.
