Bezanson Recital Hall

Amherst, MA

Bezanson Recital Hall is a 220 seat concert hall within the Fine Arts Center of the University of Massachusetts Amherst. This renovation project expanded the lobby for ticketing and reception, and brought new finishes to the heavily used recital hall. Finely designed wood and metal details are juxtaposed against the raw concrete aesthetic of the existing building and are applied in a pattern to enhance sound quality in the performance space. New lighting visually lifts the deficient height of the hall and provides greater flexibility for the varied uses of the space.
