Ocean City, Maryland’s new Performing Arts Center transformed two stories of underutilized exhibit space within the Ocean City Convention Center. The 1,200-seat performance venue offers tiered seating, state-of-the-art lighting, audio, video, and stage equipment, for a wide variety of events. The adaptive reuse of an existing, occupied facility, required intensive coordination by the entire design team to successfully retrofit multiple levels of existing structure into a seamless theater environment.
