DGA has completed work on the first phase of a three-phase project consisting of the design for the New Apollo Performing Arts Center, the complete restoration of the historic Apollo Theater, and the integration of the two facilities into a whole that will serve as the focal point of a revitalized Harlem arts scene for the 21st century. Our initial scope of work included the development of historically responsive and energy efficient architectural lighting and control system strategies for the historic Apollo theater house and facade. Future work will encompass the lighting design for all public areas of the combined facility including entry lobbies, box offices, and support spaces.
