Under Berlin Architects.
As Project Lead at BERLIN ARCHITECTS, Rachel took pride in the $5 M WALK FESTIVAL HALL RENOVATION. We designed a shell of Structural Insulated Panels to insulate this acoustical gem from heat loss and noise infiltration. We added dramatic glass vestibules to further seal the building and provide a playful look. A large board of directors, updated ADA and fire requirements, limited construction shoulder seasons, and a rather peculiar existing structure from 1974 together made this project complex and challenging. Working closely to understand the contractor’s needs, we brought the project in ahead of schedule and under budget. Larry Berlin’s client, the GRAND TETON MUSIC FESTIVAL, was able to increase their scope to include a covered concession, restroom expansion, and extensive interior remodel.
