Villanova University, Communications Department

BHA designed a new studio and black box for theatrical performances, classes, movie screenings, and green screen camera production and broadcast work at Villanova University. The control room for the black box includes lighting sound and video control, along with a vocal booth for voice over work.

An observation room serves as both the computer lab and to observe focus groups behind one-way glass.  A general classroom allows the ability to do movie screenings with high-end sound and video quality. The documentary lab is a space for group work where teams put together documentary films for class productions.  A common lobby serves as a collaborative meeting space and doubles as a screening room.
