Bringing a diverse range of programming to the Southern DeKalb County community, the Porter Sanford III Performing Arts and Community Center is a state-of-the-art, 500 seat theater located in the historic Candler Road district.
PES provided the design and details for a new 40,000 square foot Performing Arts and Community Center which included a two-story lobby that serves as a separate event space complete with concessions areas. The 500-seat auditorium/theater contains a control room, lighting, sound, and acoustical wall treatments.
Also included is a separate Black Box theater with curtained walls and hardwood floors to accommodate various types of events and performances. A multi-purpose community room, classrooms, administrative offices, and dressing rooms were also a part of the design.
