MOA ARCHITECTURE in partnership with HMS Architects, worked with Casper College and the Casper Community to create a rich, elegant, acoustically sound 21st century Music Building.
This new facility fixed along a hillside at the entrance to campus, represents a landmark facility to Casper College. The concave face of the building symbolically gestures an embrace to those that enter campus while the luminous roof monitor presents a beacon of knowledge to the surrounding community. Internally, these two architectural movements define the main lobby and concourse of the building, setting up a rhythm of hierarchical spaces that are bathed in natural daylight. The remaining organization of the building neatly folds the different rehearsal and performance spaces into a coherent whole.
The new facility provides students with a 417-seat concert hall, instrumental rehearsal hall, percussion rehearsal suite, 65-seat choral rehearsal hall, recording suite, as well as classrooms, practice rooms, faculty studios, and support spaces.
