Seattle Prep McDonnell Hall | Seattle

Nestled in the north end of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, this 23,950 square foot private school project required demolition of the old gymnasium to make room for a new performing arts theater with orchestra seating. State-of-the-art 350-seat auditorium and Fine Arts center provides Seattle Preparatory School with a commons area and classrooms for art, choir, band and a new photography darkroom, allowing expansion of the arts program. The auditorium, with its orchestra lift and large proscenium doors, can be converted for use as a sophisticated performing arts theater or large community chapel.
