Design Solutions - Spring 2020 - 36

"During early
programming exercises,
the DePaul faculty and staff
communicated to the design
team their desire for each
performance space to have
its own aesthetic identity," he
says. "Among other design
strategies employed by
the design team, this was
achieved by the introduction
of two different wood species
- rift sawn White Oak and
quarter sawn Makore." The
Makore was used in the main
concert hall and entry lobby
to provide visual consistency
with woodwork used in other

buildings throughout the
campus. The lighter colored
White Oak was used in the
less formal recital halls,
providing variety to the
project's overall aesthetic
and contributing to a unique
sense of place in each of
these spaces.

Wonderful Woodwork
According to Mark
Bernhard of Bernhard
Woodwork, the project
consisted of a full new Music
School including several
recital halls, auditorium,
recording studio, practice
rooms, and classrooms. All of
this was accessed through a
grand foyer, four stories high,
with a wood clad staircase
and paneling crowned by
curved wood beams above.
"We are currently working
with the same team in 2020
for a second smaller building
with an auditorium," he adds.

"We took the unique
flowing conceptual design
of the architect and created
engineering drawings that
could be built out of flat wood
parts," Bernhard continues.
"Models in 3D were required,
and in some cases full sized
mockups. We also worked
with a sound engineer after
the shop drawings to 'tune'
the recital hall to provide the
proper sound. This included
mocking up the panels and
adjusting blocking, adding
materials, and changing
construction to create the
right resonance for symphonic
as well as jazz orchestras."
