Traditional design (with space for avant-garde).
Situated in close proximity to existing drama, choir and music programs, Palo Alto High School’s Performing Arts Center creates new, flexible spaces—and new opportunities—for each.

Providing community gathering and meeting areas as well as performance space, the facility is fully equipped with the latest A/V technology, and can accommodate an entire grade group for orientations, lectures and assemblies.

The exterior elevation features traditional design elements, including covered porches and arcades. Multifunctional, the gabled roof utilizes a simply conveying system to channel and discharge water, while the porches and arcades offer shading to reduce heat gain.

With construction recently completed, “Paly” now boasts a state-of-the-art facility on par with its famed arts programs—a truly (award) winning combination.

Aesthetically it’s just stunning for me. It gives me a feeling of inevitability, like it’s meant to be there.”
