ARNHOLD HALL - 55 W 13TH - BUILDING I
Floors 1, 2, 3, 4,7 Mezzanine & Partial Basement.

Scope of Work:
Arnhold Hall at 55 West 13th Street was already home to The New School for Jazz. The extensive renovation of the building completed in September 2015 enabled The New School's Mannes College of Music to move from the Upper West Side to share the space as well. The New School for Drama is also sharing spaces within the building so that Arnhold Hall now houses all three divisions that comprise the College of the Performing Arts.  Five floors of Arnhold Hall were vacated and turned into state-of-the-art classrooms, practice rooms and ensemble halls. A large performance hall was created on the fourth floor and a "glass box" performance area now occupies what was formerly a library on the ground floor. This ground floor venue offers a showcase for students and faculty of the performing arts divisions to the university and the neighborhood as it is faces directly onto 13th Street.
