Combining artistry with technology to craft architectural woodwork

Shalin Liu Performing Arts Center

Rockport, MA

Leed Certified
This classic, 330-seat concert hall integrates vertical-grain Douglas fir and solid walnut to compliment the acoustically designed stone and plaster walls. A glass wall rises behind the stage to reveal a breath-taking stretch of the Atlantic Ocean.

It is the most beautiful hall in which I’ve ever performed...intimate and awe-inspiring.

Another view of the intricate weaving pattern that make up the railing at Shalin Liu. The space is filled with many different textures that not only absorb the sound but also makes this a very warm and intimate place to listen to music.
