TheatreSquared's Studio Theatre
TheatreSquared’s new 50,000 square-foot home unites two state-of-the-art theatres, the company’s first dedicated rehearsal space, offices, education and community space, on-site workshops for scenery, props and costumes, eight dedicated guest artist apartments, outdoor terraces at three levels, and an open-all-day café/bar at the active corner of West & Spring.
Board-formed architectural concrete wraps both theatre volumes. The theatre's mainstage is designed for perfect acoustic isolation from even the blast of a freight train’s horn one block away.
In Marvel Architects’ innovative design, the artistic spaces, far from hidden, actually project from the facade. The studio, rehearsal space, and mainstage are all plainly visible from the street, so that no matter where you stand outside, it's clear the building's purpose is to create and experience live theatre.
Sustainable through-and-through, the project exceeds national standards with repurposed building materials, all-LED lights, furniture milled from trees on site, enhanced commissioning, and efficient systems.

Gibson Hall was built in 1937 and was originally known as Razorback hall. It was later dedicated in the memory of James Gibson, a past director for University Housing. The Hall is located across from the Brough Hall Cafeteria. Gibson Hall has been beautifully maintained. The building's original hardwood flooring was restored during the summer of 2015.
The rooms in Gibson Hall are air-conditioned and have a ceiling fan and a sink. There will be a dedicated male floor and a dedicated female floor. Each floor has a full time resident assistant. There is also a front desk assistant on duty 24/7. the building is locked and secure at all times and campus security is on duty and patrols hourly while students are on campus.
