The Houston Ballet will open its Center for Dance next month in Houston’s Theater District, Texas, US.

The $46.6m, six-storey facility has been designed by architecture firm Gensler.

The dance centre comprises nine dance studios, a dance lab with 200 seats, and artistic, administrative and support facilities for the Houston Ballet and its academy.

Houston Ballet Foundation trustee Jesse Jones II said, “During a time of national economic recession, when the construction and architecture industries are facing major challenges, the construction of the new Center for Dance has created jobs for Houstonians with over 350,000 man hours invested in this project.”

The design features of the facility include quiet interiors with a neutral colour palette, a recurrent linear theme and double-height studios with clear interior sight lines.

The building also includes several sustainable features including use of recycled materials, low water landscaping, and recycling and repurposing of furniture.
