In addition to serving as home to the Atlanta Opera, the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre hosts an eclectic mix of concerts, performances and events throughout the year. The state-of-the art facility features a 2,750-seat theatre, numerous special event spaces and rehearsal studios and over 1,000 parking spaces to accommodate the multitude of visitors.
As the architectural lighting consultant for this $145 million project, CD+M developed custom lighting concepts that enhance the facility’s dramatic and opulent interior design. Design and construction teams succeeded in completing this impressive project on time and under budget, a rare accomplishment for a major performing arts center. The project was awarded a 2008 IESNA Award of Merit in Lighting Design.
