Trachte Music Center

01 Challenge

Lycoming College has a rich and vibrant history in music dating back to 1812. Despite this long legacy, the music program had not been invested in for more than 75 years. With its recent efforts to revitalize the campus, Lycoming College enlisted BHDP to build a new music building connected to the Mary Lindsay Welch Honors Hall that would meet student needs and encourage community engagement.

02 Solution

The higher education team at BHDP designed a new 14,000-SF facility complete with soundproof practice rooms, classrooms, a signature rehearsal and recital space, a digital piano lab, a music resource and instrument room, and offices for music faculty. The building also provides outdoor concert and event space, allowing the campus and the community to interact.
