Delta Omicron Studio was funded by members of the international musical fraternity in 1927. The building design is somewhat medieval in character, with an unusual cedar shingle pattern, a steeply pitched slate roof, intersecting gables, and small windows.
After a 2016 deep-energy renovation, Delta Omicron is now one of the most energy efficient studio on the property. To enhance an interior sense of privacy and flow, the entrance was relocated from the east to the south side where a small addition provides an entry foyer, closet, and full bathroom. While the large north-facing windows were replaced in kind, the south façade’s existing window was enlarged and a new window cut into the masonry wall to gather additional light in winter months. An electric heat pump and LED lighting make the studio warm and bright for the composers and other artists who will call it a temporary home in the century to come.
