Alice Pratt Brown Hall At Rice University

Located on the scenic campus of Rice University, Alice Pratt Brown Hall houses the Shepherd School of Music. As development manager, Hines worked hand-in-hand with the president of the university and famed architect Ricardo Bofil to seamlessly integrate the design of the 119,952-square-foot building into the existing campus architecture, and conferred with acoustical and theater consultants to create the perfect balance of form and function.

The facility includes a 1,000-seat concert hall, a 250-seat recital hall, the Edythe Bates Old Recital Hall and Grand Organ, an opera studio, 65 practice rooms, seven classrooms, rehearsal and small ensemble spaces, and 54 teaching studios.
