Eugene and Shelley Enlow Recital Hall Kean University

Eugene and Shelley Enlow Recital Hall Kean University
Acoustics, Sound and Video System

Project Description

First a chapel, then a gymnasium, and now a “spectacular chamber music facility.” The new 325-seat Eugene and Shelley Enlow recital hall at Kean University was converted by KSS Architects, along with acoustic consultant Marshall/KMK and theater consultant Cosler Theatre Design, into a “fabulous hall” with an innovative design solution that increased the volume of the space by raising the roof 15 ft in a manner that maintained the original proportions of the room by employing a sound transparent mesh ceiling at the height of the original solid ceiling.

Although appearing as a proscenium theater with a stage volume that is physically separated from the audience, there is no physical barrier over the top of the proscenium arch, above the mesh ceiling. The design contains warm, rich interior finishes, such as cherry wood paneling, fixtures, and plush green seats.
