This high-ceilinged room serves as a music performance and teaching space for chamber music and jazz groups.

IKM renovation design uses wood paneling, ceiling baffles, and a new stage curtain to transform the room’s acoustics from harsh to warm. A new stage framed by wood cabinets and lit by a new lighting grid creates a focus for performances.

Wood shutters and window boxes enhance the historic windows, modulate daylight, and give the room warmth and simple elegance.
