Music Academy of the West

Santa Barbara, CA

Master Plan & Phased Implementation 

Located in Montecito, CA, a few miles east of Santa Barbara, the Music Academy of the West is housed on a sprawling 10-acre garden estate; originally constructed in 1908.

19six Architects, working with The Music Academy’s Master Planning Task Force comprised of instructors, administrators, board members, and other industry and community members, developed a master plan and aggressive capital campaign, entitled “the Renaissance Plan,” to reconstruct the campus in phases and transform it into a campus worthy of its growing international stature.

19six facilitated discussions with the neighbors, the Planning Department, and the Montecito Board of Architectural Review. In addition, 19six helped secure a Conditional Use Permit from the County of Santa Barbara.
