Buck Hall

Project Overview

LDA Partners was chosen to design the Frank and Eva Buck Memorial Hall for the Conservatory of Music for the University of the Pacific.  This project represents the conclusion of the original campus master plan developed in the 1920’s. 

Respecting the historical nature of the campus and award winning design standards, the building incorporates both traditional and modern design elements.  It includes two large and two mid-sized classrooms, twelve teaching studios, conference room, and support functions. It also includes vocal and instrumental classrooms and studios.  Acoustical and performance qualities were critical – including minimizing sound transmission between spaces while at the same time providing performance level sound quality in designated spaces.
