Perelman Performing Arts Center

Sciame was the Construction Manager responsible for the construction of The Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center, which is set to become a hub for artistic expression in Lower Manhattan, offering a diverse range of performances and amenities for both visitors and residents. This impressive 129,000 SF building houses three theaters, with seating capacities of 450, 250, and 99, respectively. The theaters are separated by movable, acoustic guillotine walls, which allow for an impressive eleven different arrangements of the theater space, including one large space.

The building’s translucent facade is a work of art in itself, featuring thin, book-matched marble stone laminated within insulated glass. This unique design allows for both natural and interior lighting to filter through its surface, creating a stunning visual effect.

In addition to the performance support areas, such as traps, dressing rooms, and musician rooms, the public has access to a new full-service restaurant and outdoor terrace bar. This provides a welcoming space for visitors to relax and socialize before or after performances, adding to the overall patron experience at the Perelman Center.

Overall, the Perelman Center is a testament to the power of art and culture to bring people together. Its state-of-the-art facilities and innovative design make it a must-visit destination for anyone interested in theater, dance, music, film, opera, and multidisciplinary works.
