  • An art galleryn

Jaffe Holden, working with executive architect Steve Gaffney of Nestor+Gaffney Architecture, assisted with the design of the two theatrical spaces from the beginning to ensure optimal sound for both amplified and unamplified performances, and to make certain that the theaters were insulated from outside noise.
