Clarence A. Burck Center for the Performing Arts

McDonogh School • Baltimore, Maryland

A Multi-Use Performing Arts and Assembly Building

The McDonogh School’s performing arts and assembly building, set in the heart of the campus, created a number of exceptional spaces to support the school’s commitment to arts education for all ages. Known as the Clarence A. Burck Center for the Performing Arts, the building features 27,000 square feet of performance, rehearsal, and classroom space, including a 580-seat performance venue as well as a black box theatre. The facility also includes a scene shop, music studios, and lobby/reception space.

Mueller’s previous work at McDonogh School included development of the Rollins-Luetkemeyer Center, a major addition to the Louis E. Lamborn Memorial Field House. The addition created a new main lobby, circulation corridor, weight room, wrestling room, hall of fame area, and four full-sized basketball courts, with links to the existing facility. The MEP engineering was designed for phased construction that enabled the field house to remain open throughout construction, including the relocation of building utilities.
