Ahmanson Building

The Curtis School Ahmanson Building project consisted of an extensive renovation and remodel of the existing facilities, as well as 3,000 SF of new construction.

The existing multipurpose room was re-conceived as a theatrical space that could still be re-configured for different functions and needs. The work included the installation of a new ceiling that followed the existing profile of the roof. The resultant high space provided better sight lines, creating a far more appropriate location for the classes and productions that used the room throughout the year.

New construction also included two new music classrooms, as well as a new entrance and lobby space for the remodeled multipurpose room.

The construction was completed over a 5 month duration, and opened in 2013.
