JCJ was retained to renovate the Shiley Theater on the campus of the University of San Diego in the 1990s. The architectural program for this project required that the renovation work not modify or change the original appearance of the interior spaces. However, the theater lighting, housing lighting and sound systems were replaced with all new state-of-the-art equipment.
Tapestries, stage curtains, upholstered theater seating, aisle carpet runners, parquet flooring, wall and ceiling architecture detailing and molding were coordinated to reflect the 16th century architectural style of the structure. Particular attention was directed to improving the acoustical qualities of the theater space as well.
