Field Arts & Events Hall
Field Arts & Events Hall Construction / Port AngelesWA
What happens when a local community comes together to enrich the arts?

The coastal Olympic Peninsula city of Port Angeles will be the home of The Field Arts & Events Hall—a project representing the newest and most significant arts, entertainment, and special events combination found anywhere in the Region. The new 41,600 square foot downtown facility constructed by our Seattle team will enhance the broader creative community by providing a gathering place on the city’s inviting waterfront. The center features a 500-seat multi-purpose auditorium and a 300-seat state-of-the-art conference and event space with breathtaking water views.  

The spectacular natural environment of Port Angeles, framed by the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains, is captured within the architectural gestures of the building. Public space that rises from the street to a second level provides wrap-around views of the city, water, and the mountains. The art gallery, conference center, and coffee shop complement the performance space and welcome the community and visitors. The project utilizes multiple structural components including concrete, CMU, steel, and structural timber framing enclosed in a rain screen panel system and curtain wall. Inside, this building is equipped with the latest technological innovations to support events.

The project serves as a new cultural hub for Port Angeles, rooted in its natural beauty, that elevates the arts and creativity within the community. A key focus for the team from the start was to support the Field Arts & Events Hall’s mission to create a home for arts and events that brings people together and strengthens the community. This meant maximizing the economic impact to the city and surrounding area through employing a local workforce and increasing community revenue. The center is the most ambitious privately funded project of its kind on the Olympic Peninsula.
