7,500 square feet completed within $3 million budget
Neumann was able to salvage and restore the 850 SF performance stage. We added seating for 238 people, new open lobby with restrooms, ticket office, as well as all new mechanical, electrical, AV, and theatrical lighting systems. The project also included an addition that connects the Opera House to the neighboring community center allowing people to enjoy both venues under one roof. We worked with the client on historical tax credits, grant applications, and many efforts to complete the funding for this project.
Restored building, renewed community.
Brooklyn Opera House is now fully restored to its original intent – a community cultural and performance venue.
