HOUSTON BALLET CENTER FOR DANCE
Project Year 2010
A/D Firm: Gensler
The Center for Dance is the largest professional dance facility of its kind in the United States. Home to the Houston Ballet and its associated ballet academy, the building features nine dance studios, a dance lab, and administrative offices.
The design showcases classes and rehearsal spaces through large windows and double-height-volume rehearsal studios that allow the outside to peer into the magic within from the street.
Gardner Glass Products provided laminated mirror for the dance studios. Laminated mirror was an unusual choice - especially at the heights required - but it was specified to help mitigate sound transfer between rehearsal studios.
