Laguna Woods, CA
The Laguna Woods Performing Arts Center (formerly known as Clubhouse 3) was designed and constructed in the 1970s to accommodate 841 guests, along with a full stage, dressing rooms, and a rehearsal room. Additional spaces include two meeting rooms with access to a small kitchen and a billiards room. Throughout its life, the facility has undergone several upgrades to its interiors and equipment. However, these upgrades were limited in scope due to budget constraints. While assessing the site and building conditions, SVA worked with the various stakeholders and user groups to assess their needs, resulting in a project that is functional but also sensitive to time and budget constraints.
