"In the barnlike concert hall, this tension between isolation and cosiness has its sublime side Designed by Laura Viklund of Gunnstock Timber Frames, the structure's thick larch-wood beams and weathered-steel armour give it a tough, blizzard-defying look. Inside, the architecture treats sound like a precious substance."
-Lawrence B. Johnson
"At Tippet Rise, the usual performing space is the Olivier Barn, a cozy, serene room lined with larch wood, its ceiling rising at a steep slope. The barns seats about 100 and affords agreeable acoustics, which I experienced from several different perspectives in concerts by musicians of the first rank."
