Hines served as development manager for Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, home of the Orlando Ballet, Orlando Opera and Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra.
The 250,000-square-foot facility features a 2,700-seat amplified theater; a 1,700-seat acoustical, multipurpose hall; a 300-seat community theater; an outdoor plaza with stage; numerous rehearsal rooms; ample administrative offices and extensive educational programming space. Additionally, the site plan was designed to accommodate future expansion for a 200-room hotel, 400 condominium units and commercial office space.
Barton Myers Associates created a dynamic and welcoming venue that incorporates elements of light, water and other aspects of the natural ecology. Hines collaborated with Damian Doria and Edward Arenius of Artec Consultants Inc. to assure a superb acoustical design for the Center.
