Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts

Saint Norbert College

De Pere, WI


The Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts renovation and addition confirmed the college’s commitment to music and drama at St. Norbert College, as well as in the community. It includes the renovation of the existing 1954 800-seat proscenium theater to improve sight lines and acoustics, as well as the teaching and support spaces associated with it. The addition, which was designed to maintain a relationship with the historic nature of the campus and the nearby downtown, contains a new 180 seat thrust stage theater and supporting spaces, as well as band and music practice rooms. All acoustically critical areas are able to function simultaneously without sound transmission between spaces.
