Heller Manus provided architectural services for multiple renovations of the Shoreline Amphitheatre which has the capacity to serve 20,000 concert-goers and is located along the southwestern shore of the San Francisco Bay in Mountain View, California. Fixed seating for 7,000 persons is arranged in two lower sections. A massive tensile structure spanning 460 feet and rising 200 feet over the stage serves as both a canopy to the lower seating section and the stage and a visible landmark to the surrounding area.
A sloped lawn area provides seating for an additional 13,000 people. Heller Manus was also retained for the planning, design, and construction services of a facility expansion, which includes 5,000 additional bleacher seats to accommodate sold-out shows, as well as concessions and public service areas. A ten-acre parcel adjacent to the site was acquired for additional parking requirements.
