Crossroads Tabernacle, Boden Center for the Performing Arts
Bronx, New York
WSDG completed a major renovation project for Crossroads Tabernacle and Boden Center for The Performing Arts, a prominent inner-city church located in The Bronx, NY. The facility includes a state-of-the-art audio and video production studio, and a completely refurbished 800 seat theater for worship, concerts, dramas, and outreach events. The restoration, which also includes new administrative facilities and a children's educational wing, was completed in 2002.
The control room and studio area of the facility can operate completely independent of the theater, or tie into performances as needed to capture live recordings. The seating area within the theater area is completely flexible and seating can be modularly removed for different events as needed by the church. Since the facility lies in the middle of the Bronx, special consideration was given to isolation for the facility to eliminate noise from the outside, but also to isolate the auditorium environment from the control room/studio environment that is adjacent to it.
