WALSENBURG FOX THEATER

Professional - Renovation Proposal

Walsenburg, CO

The Walsenburg Fox Theater asked for a proposal for a remodel of their historic theater. The building needed ADA compliant restrooms, an elevator, a second screening room and a cafe/restaurant to increase revenue. The organization that runs the theater had also considered purchasing a vacant building to the north, or a vacant lot to the south. Both could provide much more space for program like an event space, and classrooms.


I developed the plan that would expand into the vacant lot in two phases. The first phase would address the most immediate needs of an elevator, kitchen and new ADA compliant restrooms. The space above this addition could be used as a rooftop patio before the second phase is started. The second phase adds a much larger cafe/bar with performance stage, an additional screen, and an event center upstairs with additional rooms for offices, classrooms or studios. The community wanted to restore the theater to its most glamorous time. The lobby in this design is reimagined to be the grand entrance we expect in an Art Deco style theater. The staircase was moved to be more visible and become a prominent feature.
 
We presented the schemes to the community members and  made changes to reflect the needs and wants of the patrons. They are in the process of deciding which one they would like to pursue.
