Timken Music Hall

Phillips Andover Academy, Andover, MA



This high-ceilinged room serves as a music performance and teaching space for chamber music and jazz groups.


IKM renovation design uses wood paneling, ceiling baffles, and a new stage curtain to transform the room's acoustics from harsh to warm. A new stage framed by wood cabinets and lit by a new lighting grid, creates a focus for performances.


Wood shutters and window boxes enhance the historic windows, modulate daylight and give the room warmth and simple elegance.
