From the 2023 Educational Interiors Showcase: Paul D. Wachholz College Center

Oct. 16, 2023
The facility at Flathead Valley Community College in Kalispell, Montana, was recognized as an outstanding design in the auditoriums/music rooms category.

The overall goal of the Wachholz College Center at Flathead Valley Community College in Kalispell, Montana, was to meld two programs that are usually separate — performing arts and athletics — into one facility. The performing arts portion of the center features McClaren Hall, a 1,000-plus-seat performing arts center with state-of-the-art acoustics and the flexibility to accommodate concerts, lectures, dance performances, and musical theater productions. Additional music classrooms and individual practice spaces enable students to further rehearse and collaborate. The facility also houses a reception hall and art gallery, and an outdoor amphitheater rounds out the performance and gathering spaces.
