The $60.9 million Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, a state-of-the-art facility at University of California Davis, was designed by the Portland-located BOORA Architects with a focus on green environment and opened in 2002. The 104,000 square-foot Mondavi Center features two performance venues: the Barbara K. and W. Turrentine Jackson Hall with 1,800 seats and the Larry and Rosalie Vanderhoef Studio Theater with space for up to 250 people.
The focus in designing this facility was to establish a green environment and make it one of the first sustainable Performing Arts buildings. For this project TROX USA provided Underfloor Air Distribution type FBA. Their select variety of surface structures and colours makes them an attractive design element for building owners and architects. The introduction of supply air through false floor systems is ideally carried out at locations in which convection currents are to be supported in occupied zones. Floor diffusers are installed at locations which are not continuously occupied like theaters. They can be deployed at distances of as little as 40cm from seating. Furthermore TROX USA also provided Passive Chilled Beams and Displacement Flow Diffusers for this project.
The focus on green features in this facility include, besides the underfloor air system, glazed curtain walls which allow natural daylighting, shading canopies, and sustainably harvested wood as well as non-toxic materials were used for the interior. The UFAD system is connected to sensors which control the heating and cooling and help to save energy. Furthermore a UFAD is a optimal solution for a Performing Arts building due to is quietude and also reusability features.
