Life Austin Amphitheater

Austin, Texas

GFF designed a new amphitheater for Life Austin Church on their current campus to expand the church’s music ministry. The church hosts a variety of performance and worship events in the amphitheater, which has covered seats under a curved standing seam roof and additional lawn seating. The design supports an acoustical plan for distributing reinforced sound while controlling decibel levels at property lines per Austin Noise Ordinance Requirements. While serving as the primary event pre-function space, a large entry concourse accommodates a variety of smaller scale informal worship, performance and gathering spaces that support the larger amphitheater. Mobile food vendors line the edges of the concourse area and native landscaping is integrated into the design to provide shaded seating areas along the concourse, forming a ‘friendly’, yet secure perimeter boundary that controls public access into the amphitheater.
