Project is music to school's ears
Florida Gulf Coast University is building a $7.55 million Fine Arts Building on its campus near Ft. Myers, Fla. The 25,000-sf building—the first project in the school's plan for an entire music complex—will house the music program of the College of Arts and Sciences. The facility includes a 200-seat recital hall, rehearsal hall, music labs, studio rooms, and administration offices. The team of Reynolds, Smith and Hills, Jacksonville, Fla., and Pfeiffer Associates, Los Angeles, designed the project to earn LEED Silver.
