As part of a multiphase renovation project, the 185,000-square-foot Holtschneider Performance Center became the first construction of a new music complex for the DePaul University School of Music. Sitting on the site once occupied by McGaw Hall, a metallic 1960s building, the new academic development boasts modern design with layered brickwork, stone, a metal cornice and generous expanses of glass, providing plenty of natural light inside and revealing the activity within. Designed by Chicago firms, Antunovich Associates and Wolff Landscape Architecture, the music complex serves as the new eastern gateway to the Lincoln Park Campus. The new structure fronts onto a paved courtyard that offers access to the main pedestrian entrance and a gateway to the circular motor court, allowing for efficient passenger drop-off. The designers used Unilock 4×12” Plank pavers with Series finish in the beautiful Coral Gem, creating an elegant paving design that welcomes students with its warm, lively atmosphere. Perfect for driveways and walkaways, the Series durable surface is achieved through a specialized manufacturing process, resulting in a striking visual effect that complements the building’s red brick façade and beautifies the surrounding street corridor.
