City Center, Byers Theatre

Performing Arts Center and Studio Theater

Sandy Springs, GA

ICT was retained to provide mechanical and electrical design for the 1,070-seat Byers Theatre performing arts center, 300-seat Studio Theatre, and surrounding support and lobby spaces was provided through the design development phase utilizing Revit Modeling software. Design was coordinated with an acoustical designer and a theatrical designer.

A full orchestra pit, fly loft and superb acoustics make the theatre an ideal venue for a variety of performance events.  The back-of-house includes green rooms, dressing rooms, and a 1,300 SF rehearsal room.  The Byers Theater performing arts center utilizes an underfloor air distribution system and was designed for NC-15 sound level.

The 6,100 SF glass-enclosed Main Lobby functions as a gallery or venue for receptions.  The full-service CityBar adjoins the Main Lobby and Studio Theatre, including a 7' x 16' video wall.  The Park View Lounge space adjoins the Main Lobby.

The Studio Theatre is a 5,000 SF flexible space and was designed for NC-20 sound level.  The room can serve as a meeting space, a venue for small performances, or a location for corporate meetings and banquet-style events.  The room comfortable holds 300-350 people for seated events, and features excellent acoustics, a full lighting grid, a sprung floor and other technologies.  The 2,730 SF Studio Theatre lobby provides pre-function space for the Studio Theatre.  The facility uses LED lighting including LED theatrical lighting for energy savings.
