saint mary’s school pittman auditorium

project story

Pittman Auditorium is a two-story brick Neo-Classical Revival building located on the campus of Saint Mary’s School. Built in 1906-1907, the Auditorium is on the National Register of Historic Places and is recognized as a Raleigh Historic Property. It has had no significant renovation since it was built. The auditorium is the School’s largest meeting space, 6,650 square feet, with a maximum occupancy of 537 people and 523 seats, (348 downstairs and 175 in a balcony upstairs). The primary goal of this project is to renovate the existing auditorium to serve the contemporary needs of School programs. Upgrades include new windows and doors, full MEP, fire alarm, and sprinkler system replacement; replacement and reconfiguration of continental seating, ADA upgrades, interior renovation, and abatement of hazardous materials. Support and classroom spaces will be in a new 3,500 SF addition, joined to the Auditorium by a glass atrium.
