Originally constructed for use as the City of Portland’s Lincoln High School in 1911, Portland State University’s Lincoln Hall is now the home to their thriving performing arts program, housing both classroom and theater spaces. Because of the building’s historical significance, modifications to its foundation or implementing large duct systems were not an option. The restorations and upgrades to the building’s systems were designed to preserve the integrity of the existing structure while improving the system’s efficiency and the comfort of the spaces.
