Teatro Mons. Vicente Murga

Pontificia Universidad Católica de Puerto Rico

Ponce PR

2012-2015

The comprehensive remodel and expansion of the Mons. Vicente Murga Theater was intended to increase the seating capacity through lateral expansion and the addition of a mezzanine level; to integrate support spaces such as dressing rooms, box office, expanded restrooms, storage and backstage; expand the scenario; improve mechanical, electrical and audio-visual systems; and provide complementary interior spaces such as lobbies and exhibition areas. The project's location within the campus was identified as a crossroads between a main pedestrian entrance, the Law School courtyard and other buildings, and this condition was reflected through the inclusion of entrances facing each main direction. The project provided a new contemporary character to the building, and by extension, to the campus.
