Situated in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, this California State University, Northridge (CSUN) facility includes a 1,700 seat performance hall, an experimental theater, rehearsal spaces, offices and studios for KCSN radio. The lobby radiates with light and is embraced by its surrounding gardens through transparent and translucent materials. Warm flowing wood and sparkling stainless steel mesh walls create a lyrical and dramatic hall focused toward the performance.
