The 3‐story Creative Arts Complex (music and art) is a State funded replacement project for a 34 year‐old condemned facility. The new complex features state of the art digital music performance and recording facilities as well as art studios to support 2‐D and 3‐D art. The building is designed and organized to separate distinct activity uses and noise level zones, while creating a large central space to foster interdepartmental collaboration. Superb ocean views are captured via the building design and site orientation.
