Completed at the end of summer 2018, the Howard High School of Technology in Wilmington, DE was a unique challenge. Restore a 1930s dual use space (not your typical "gymnatorium") and make it functional for today's needs. A large dividing Skyfold wall separates the gym from the "stage" area, side masking curtains roll down from above, and stage lighting equipment on motorized pipes deploy, to create a defined stage space when needed. The audio system speakers are hidden in the architecture to help maintain the historic nature of the room.
