Emma Jones Conservatory at Westminster College
Salt Lake City, UT
The Westminster College Emma Eccles Jones Conservatory includes a professional recording studio, rehearsal hall, classrooms, a music tech lab and a 285-seat recital hall. The innovative Conservatory also features an experimental black box theater with a walkway overtop for lighting setup.
The interior finishes of the Conservatory are of the highest quality. The ash paneling in the Vieve Gore Concert Hall and the Atrium came entirely from one log, as did the rich bosse wood trim in the concert hall.
Layton carefully constructed acoustics and soundproofing throughout the Conservatory. The ceilings and walls have three layers of sheetrock, as well as acoustical underlayment at roof slab, and the Concert Hall has no 90 degree angles to trap sound.
