Conservatory of Music, Baldwin-Wallace College

College & University

Boesel Conservatory of Music

Baldwin-Wallace College

This project began as a study of an existing historic church building and its suitability for conversion to an academic use. After evaluation WMF recommended the College purchase the building, which they did. WMF then completed a programming process for the Conservatory of Music to determine where to position their programmatic needs within the purchased building plus two other existing campus buildings, and plan for a new 15,000 SF facility that links all three structures. Acoustical separation and sustainable design practices were key issues driving the design and distribution of the programmatic requirements.

A new opportunity for the project occurred with the inclusion of Historic Tax Credits, both at the federal and State of Ohio levels. This involved extensive research on the buildings, seeking landmark status for two of the three not currently landmarked, and designing within the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for the treatment of Historic Properties.
