PRLog - Oct. 15, 2012 - (Raleigh, NC) – Pearce Brinkley Cease +Lee, an award-winning architecture firm with offices in Raleigh and Asheville, NC, has received a 2012 Brick in Industry Southeast Region Merit Award for its design of the Lauren Kennedy and Alan Campbell Theater at Barton College in Wilson, NC.

The 12,000-square-foot theater is home to the small liberal arts college’s theater program. The Barton College studio theater is a restrained building that addresses many demands with economy of moves. It addresses the functional demands of a performance space while blending into the existing campus texture, simultaneously creating two campus spaces in which students and patrons can socialize.

The building massing is organized around a central volume, the “back box” theater. This volume is understood from the exterior and the interior by the architects’ use of a consistent building material: brick. The use of brick as an interior finish material contributes to the project’s distinction.

“Particularly in the lobby, brick, glass and wood combine to create an interior that is full of texture and light,” said PBC+L principal Jeffrey Lee, FAIA.

This is the third award the Barton College Theater has received. In 2010, it received a state "Design with Brick" award. In 2011 the project received a national “Brick in Architecture” award, also from the Brick Industry.
