Kennedy Center – Terrace Theatre
Location: Washington, DC
Performance: STC 48
Application: Interior sound control
SCW Model Series: SCW900 Series and SCW600 Series
One of the primary mandates for the renovation of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Terrace Theatre was to drastically improve the acoustics.
St. Cloud Window delivered high acoustic SCW960-A7 windows with sound transmission rating of STC48 for interior sound control, so when an actor needs a spotlight or a scene requires day turning into night, the production technicians inside the control room can work, and interact, without interfering with the performance on stage.
This is a smaller venue, it’s run by a small crew that had to run all over to operate the space during performances . . . the space now features . . . reconfiguration of the technical booths, ” per Leora Mirvish of Quinn Evan in a Retrofit magazine interview November 2019
The renovation to Terrace Theater brings it into the modern-day, with a warm, sleek design that meets acoustic needs. The high acoustic control room windows provide the technical crew the environment needed to work their own particular magic so you can enjoy the full impact of the stage performance.
St. Cloud Window is also proud to have also installed SCW960-A7 high acoustic fixed windows in the Kennedy Center Family Theater in 2012.
