Bellarmine College Preparatory High School,
Sobrato Center for Humanities & the Arts

San Jose, California

The Sobrato Center for Humanities & the Arts at Bellarmine College Preparatory School forms the cultural heart of the existing campus quad for this prestigious private school. The LEED Gold facility is organized around a 440-seat theater that is outfitted with a large workshop and ‘Black Box’ theater. Sloped seating, a traditional orchestra pit, and robust infrastructure allow the space to accommodate a wide range of performances.

In addition to the theater, the building houses several general education and fine art classrooms, a music practice room, a ceramics lab and kiln, and a digital technology lab. The concentration of these spaces into a single building makes it more economical to incorporate state-of-the-art technology into each discipline.
