During the 18-month renovation of the concert hall in 2007–08, the auditorium underwent an extensive redesign to enhance the hall's acoustics for contemporary music performance. Damaged wall tiles were replaced with a blend of elegantly curved and flat acoustic panels that integrate visually with the interior beauty of the space. Seating was replaced and reconfigured to enable more audience members to sit in the prime acoustical and visual center of the hall. A dedicated new mixing station was added, and surrounding structures, doors, and building climate control were enhanced to remove exterior noise and soundproof the hall for improved performing and recording quality.
Working with a team of acoustical and design experts, Mills has created a concert hall for the 21st century focused on providing a clear, smooth sound and an ideal listening and performing environment for both acoustic and electronic music.
