Milwaukee Youth Arts Center


First Stage Children’s Theater & Milwaukee Youth Symphany Orchestra


Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Project size

61,000 SF



A complete renovation of the former Journal Sentinel warehouse that created two enormous rehearsal halls, each capable of housing a full symphony orchestra.  Both have sprung wood floors, acoustic clouds and sound systems.  The Youth Arts Hall holds a choir loft/audience gallery and control room.

Three additional large studio rehearsal rooms provide airy, bright spaces for theater rehearsals.  14 ensemble rooms, dressing rooms, and administrative offices round out the facility.
