It is great to see an innovative building that does not sacrifice the cultural aesthetics of its region. The Snowy Owl Theater honors the culture and design of the Wenatchee Valley. Daylighting is maximized through large two-story window walls, the building’s mechanical system is highly efficient, and the lobby of the theater includes stairs made from reclaimed wood from a World War II-era Boeing factory. Surrounded by mountains and the beautiful valley scenery of Leavenworth, the theater is a space where music and nature can merge to produce what Harriet Bullitt refers to as “the nurturing of the human condition”.
The grand opening of the Snowy Owl Theater is set to take place on April 27. More information can be found on their website. A sneak-peek of the facility can be seen on their recent promotional video.
