Loyola Academy Performing Arts Center

Wilmette, IL

To realize its educational mission, the Academy is elevating its Performing Arts facilities. The theater will host up to 550 guests in a full range of performing arts productions, including plays, musicals, orchestra concerts, and dance performances. A lobby with exhibit space, student lounge, and support spaces will complete the experience for students, faculty, and guests.

This is a transformational project raising the Arts to the level of Academics and Athletics within the school program.

Strategically positioned along the Loyola Academy campus's north edge, the facility will create a new campus Plaza and Quad.

Loyola West Elevation

The section through the theater is an important way to understand the performance & proportion of the space.

It was here that the project started, along with the client we worked to add a balcony and fly tower within the local height restrictions of the Village of Wilmette.
