Brattleboro Music Center
Construction documents have been completed for the Brattleboro Music Center’s new home and they broke ground at the end of September. The school will have larger, acoustically improved practice rooms and a 70-seat recital hall that will serve the school and small choral groups. The renovation and addition will give the Brattleboro Music Center an excellent teaching center for students and faculty as well as a small performance space for the school and community. The Auditorium will provide the BMC with an acoustically excellent performance space that will be an exciting destination for performers, a practice and performance space for a number of BMC’s affiliated programs – and a wonderful resource for the entire musical and artistic community. Above is an interior rendering of the auditorium space taken from the mezzanine level.
Falmouth Memorial Library
Working closely with the building committee, library staff, town administrators, and the community, SSA has developed a plan that will almost doubling the amount of space available for library patrons. The plan has been designed to have a feeling of spaciousness and connectivity, allowing for maximum visual oversight as the library increases in size while minimizing the need for more staff. The children’s and adult areas have been separated into two wings, linked by an open public computing and periodical reading area. Large windows and strategically placed skylights will provide generous amounts of natural daylight with views to the gardens and courtyard outside. The new, expanded facility will be a high-performance, sustainable building that acts as a vibrant hub for community engagement and learning. The construction manager for the project is Ledgewood Construction.
