Tobin Center for the Performing Arts / 2014

ArchitectLMN Architects

The Tobin Center in San Antonio Texas is an adaptive reuse of the historic entry façade with a new multi-auditorium performing arts facility.  Front worked closely with LMN Architects through all phases to conceptualize and develop multiple façade systems.  The historic façade is enhanced with a glass wall to form an entry lobby.  The main enclosure for the auditorium is a composite insulated metal panel system with integral supports for the signature veil metal paneling system. A glass box to the side houses the smaller performance spaces.  Design of the veil system considered structural concept, aviary considerations, cutout analysis and incorporation of lighting system.
