Painstakingly designed as a state-of-the-art venue, Pyatt Hall combines a classical spirit with the benefits of 21st Century technology. The flexible nature of the space makes for a multitude of stage configurations, and the gala-lift flooring system allows a flat floor to be transformed into raked seating in a matter of minutes. More adaptability comes in the form of motorized acoustic panels and drape systems providing multiple acoustic options for each event.
The acoustically and vibrationally isolated Pyatt Hall is attractively clad with locally sourced basalt stone and sound diffusing maple wood slats. These features create a light and airy space, and the convenient access to the Arthur H. Willms Salon, servery, lobby areas and concession bar, provide all the necessary elements for concerts, meetings and catered events.
