PROJECT: Saturday Night Live Studios at Las Vegas
LOCATION: Las Vegas, Nevada
CLIENT: Broadway Video
COST: $100 Million
H3 conducted a feasibility study and drafted plans to convert an existing theater into a permanent home for Saturday Night Live in Las Vegas, exploring a fully integrated live television production center with permanent audio and video production and new reinforcement capabilities.
The redesign of the auditorium creates an exceptional degree of intimacy and audience impact through dramatic use of multiple seating terraces, resulting in a 1200 seat television studio/theater where video, television, performers and audience are woven together. The facility is designed to host a wide range of live entertainment or HD television productions.
Saturday Night Live Las Vegas is meant to be a 24-hour venue, with a museum, studio tour, restaurant and late night bar. The project is designed to LEED Gold standards.
