Project Description

The New England Conservatory of Music is the oldest independent school of music in the United States. Located in Boston’s East Fenway district, the Conservatory occupies 2.5 acres and offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs, a continuing education program, and a preparatory program. The core of the campus is Jordan Hall, an internationally-known concert hall, restored by ABA.

ABA designed the Conservatory’s new Student Life and Performance Center, currently in construction, incorporating a 250 student residence, dining commons, practice and performance facilities, a library and resource center, and campus life functions. The design transforms NEC’s urban campus, with new streetscape and landscape. Construction will be complete in 2017. A second phase, a new Academic Center, will provide additional academic resources, offices and practice and performance spaces.

Together, these buildings will total over 200,000 sf and create a vibrant new setting for academic and community life, invigorating the Conservatory’s urban presence and cultural impact. This project is designed to achieve LEED Silver or higher. Gensler is Ann Beha Architect’s Associate Architect for this project.
