Constructed in 1878, and designated as a National Historic Landmark, the Cincinnati Music Hall received approval for an $83 million renovation concept in 2014. With funding comprised of State and Federal Historic Tax Credit, the Music Hall’s final design was required to meet the Secretary of Interior’s Standard for rehabilitation of historic buildings, including approval from the Ohio State Historic Preservation Office and the National Parks Service.
Working as Design Architect, and in partnership with Perfido Weiskopf Wagstaff + Goettel, Executive Architect, our team established a comprehensive and economically feasible scope for the rehabilitation and modernization of the venue. The program of work includes the redesign of the performing arts facilities to improve accessibility, acoustics, and the overall patron experience; the preservation and restoration of this historic landmark to national standards; the economization of operational and back of house areas; and the execution of lasting structural improvements to secure the building’s longevity. Our work has focused on the Main and North Halls as well as the Carriageways.
