Town Centre One Theater

The Town Centre One Theater project is a multi-generational commitment of The Moody Foundation that started in the 1950's. Dan Moody, wanting to support the community with the arts, donated the land and building to establish a community theater in the early 1950's. The theater group has thrived since then and the commitment to support the theater has lasted to this day with a 3rd generation Moody, Dan Moody III, making the commitment to finance and build a new Theater building.

In the spirit of the arts, the design team and the Moody Foundation wanted to present to the community a structure that complimented the community, tied into the existing commercial development and displayed the creative nature of architectural design and the arts. The vision for the structure turned into a combination of glass and concrete tilt-wall. Concrete tilt-wall construction was a logistic challenge due the height of the panels, varied sub-grade elevations for the theater, shortage of space to cast panels and neighboring buildings. The goal of a distinctive concrete tilt-wall look was achieved using a rustic multi-layered liner panel. The rustic look is exposed to view on exterior and interior walls. Success was achieved in the goal of appeal and functional use of a Theater Arts Building that will serve the community for generations to come.
