University of Idaho – Kibbie Dome

The Kibbie Dome opened for football as an outdoor (no roof structure) stadium in 1971. In the Fall of 1975, it became an enclosed facility after a barrel-arched roof and end walls were added. Since then, the facility has had many additions surrounding it, but the look has stayed relatively unchanged. That all changed beginning in 2009, when renovations went underway to remove the existing West end wall made up of wood structure, including hundreds of 4x8 sheets of painted plywood on the exterior. This old, aging wall was replaced with a new non-combustible wall structure consisting of steel vertical trusses, metal framing, metal siding and translucent panels. The new wall improved energy performance, met building code requirements, and now allows a great deal of natural light into the dome.

After completing the West wall project, we began on another phase of the dome renovation. The East end wall was replaced to match the new West wall, and seating enhancements were made throughout the dome. This included a new press box, coaches’ communication boxes, radio and TV broadcasting rooms, private suites, restrooms and club level rooms. By using sleek, linear highly-efficient fluorescent fixtures for the main lighting source, and low voltage pendants and sconces, the look of the dome interior transformed.

The University of Idaho Kibbie Dome is a refreshed, vibrant structure that the Vandals are again proud to call home.

University of Idaho – Lionel Hampton Recital Hall

The University of Idaho Lionel Hampton Recital Hall was named after the late, great Hampton performed at the University of Idaho’s Jazz Festival in 1984. He was impressed with the school’s dedication to Jazz education, and pledged his support to the school. Three years later, the annual Jazz Festival and the University’s School of Music were named after him.

Since that time, the recital hall remained mostly unchanged, until 2009 when renovations began to update and modernize the space. The main focus was to make the space a better place for students and staff to practice and perform their art of music by improving acoustics and lighting.

The newly remodeled recital hall is architecturally refined, with greatly improved lighting and controls throughout. The new lighting design includes dimmable quartz lighting above the seating area, T5HO aimable linear cove lighting for the perimeter of the seating area, and theater lighting for the stage. House lighting and lighting controls are integrated into a dimmable theatrical control system in order to provide a lighting system with optimal flexibility that can be utilized in conjunction with a wide variety of recital hall performance needs.

Specialty lighting design services, which included renderings using AGi32 software, provided both the architect and the owner with the ability to visually evaluate the aesthetic effect that each potential lighting scheme had on the character of the space.
