Project Name: Old Forester’s Paristown Hall / Kentucky Center for the Arts
Location: Louisville, Kentucky
Size: 28,000 Square Feet
This project is a 28,000 sf standing room performance venue accommodating up to 2,000 patrons. The design is fluid and flexible to accommodate a myriad of performance styles which range from the Louisville Orchestra to weddings. The facility is primarily standing room, however, the upper balcony which wraps the perimeter of the performance hall provides VIP and lounge areas.
Another exciting component of the project includes the Music Garden directly adjacent to the venue. This park provides public amenities to ensure activity throughout the year but is also designed to host outdoor events. An open air pavilion serves as a band stand, while another pavilion contains concessions and a second level to project movies and performances being broadcast from within the neighboring music venue. The venue includes an adjacent green space area that is activated with public events and festivals.
Paristown Hall and the Music Garden combine to provide an exciting lineup of indoor and outdoor events which activate and transform the surrounding neighborhood.
