Combining artistry with technology to craft architectural woodwork

Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

Kansas City, MO

This monumental project has the warmth of Douglas fir, red oak, and yellow cedar to enhance the design. Conceived to resemble a “finely tuned instrument”, it is equipped with state-of-the-art acoustics and technology. Even at its cathedral-like scale, it suspends a sense of intimacy.

"This project presented many challenges, complex geometry coupled with stringent acoustic performance requirements. Kudos to Ritch Winokur and Richey's engineering group on tackling the design aspect, and the shop team for its expert craftmanship"
