Quinn Evans Architects is providing ongoing services for multiple restoration projects at this National Historic Landmark.
The firm has addressed ongoing maintenance, preservation, and project planning concerns of this national organization headquarters – including exterior repairs, the restoration of the leaded glass lay-light in Memorial Hall, renovation of the President General’s Reception Room, and a feasibility study for renovations within Constitution Hall, a 3,700 seat performance space.
MAKING A GRAND ENTRANCE
The lobbies of Constitution Hall welcome over half a million patrons annually attending events such as concerts by the National Symphony Orchestra, National Geographic’s film series, the Country Music Awards, and the annual taping of Jeopardy! Through a renovation, the 475-foot-long U-shaped lobbies for this grand venue were renewed. The richness of the decorative plaster relief details and bronze rosette light fixtures within the continuous vaulted ceilings are now punctuated with a new palette of color and finishes which highlight the opulence of the historic space. The restored lobbies provide a sophisticated gathering space and appropriate entry into this nationally significant landmark venue.
