Construction Underway at HGA-Designed Clausen Hall

10.24.11

Construction has begun on HGA Architects and Engineers' redesign of Los Angeles City College's Clausen Hall, a 60,000-square-foot facility for the school's music department at the 78-year-old Los Angeles campus. HGA's $13 million modernization and systems upgrade will expand the college's popular music department with a renovated recital hall and new lecture hall while creating a visually striking entrance to the campus. The project, due for a 2012 completion, is an example of HGA's continuing core expertise in designing visual and performing arts facilities.

Currently being built by Summit Builders, the renovation includes the expansion of the 190-seat recital hall and the addition of a 150-seat lecture hall, music library and study area, and several classrooms and practice rooms, as well as renovations to the band room, coaching studios and faculty offices. The renovation also allows for the purchase of new music instruments and equipment.
