Gwinnett School of Dance | Dance School and Special Events Facility


Gwinnett School of Dance  |  Dance School and Special Events Facility

Gwinnett School of Dance’s unique challenge was to construct a sustainable new building that incorporated an existing 100-year old livery stable and boarding house, built using methods that are not compatible with current building techniques. Designed to meet Grayson’s Downtown Historical Overlay Zoning and approved by the Grayson Historical Association, Dominy Construction Group preserved the historical feel through reclamation of many original materials; tin roof, old timber framing and hand-hewn granite boulder walls from an old livery stable. To retain elements of original site, three 70+ year old Oak Trees were saved from scheduled removal during the site development process.  The 3,800SF event facility is designed to enhance elements of the past with the best of new construction:
  • Livery Stable–Two of its four hand-hewn granite boulders walls were left in place and incorporated into the new building
  • Dance Studio Floor is a resilient hardwood floor system with cork underlayment especially for dance studios.
  • For events, the building is equipped with a warming kitchen, custom surround sound system and a custom-built Movable Partition.
