Lawrence Academy - Williams Arts Center
Beacon Architectural Associates assisted Lawrence Academy in both the planning and implementation of a new arts center. An unused gymnasium and locker rooms in the Gray Building on the main quadrangle were transformed into a performing arts suite, music rooms, library, and fine arts studios with exterior patios. The “village” of rooms that make up the performing arts suite and the fine arts studios signal a new direction for the arts program at Lawrence Academy. An “internal street” runs along and connects the various arts buildings, and the space is programmed as a linear art gallery. The rooms share a common architectural language, reminiscent of a Japanese tea house: post and beam construction, articulated roofs, and stained wood trim.
