College of Saint Rose – Jack’s Place
Sacco McKinney Architects

Jack’s Place/Studio G3 is a multi-genre performance venue located on the College of Saint Rose campus in the William Randolph Hearst Center for Communications and Interactive Media. It is run by MISA (Music Industry Student Association). Included in the renovation was: a new steel balcony with a control room, increasing capacity in the venue from an audience of 140 to 238; a new television in the hallway outside the studio to broadcast to overflow crowds; updated and more energy-efficient lighting; and upgraded sound and video equipment. Improved soundproofing means the performance space and recording studio next door can now be used at the same time. And a new acoustic glass door system with sidelights offers an expansive view into the space from the hallway, while a new entryway with a brick façade and a metal canopy give the space a club-like feel.
