The Emery Theater, built in 1911, is a 1600 seat acoustically pure concert space that served as the original home of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra from 1912 to 1936. John Senhauser Architects, in association with Westlake Reed Leskosky, were asked to complete a feasibility study and concept design to re- establish and transform this historic treasure into a unique venue for film, theatre, music and dance. Our solution was to restore the main stage back to full functioning order as well as create classroom, rehearsal and studio spaces, a multi-use event center and roof terrace.
