Modular Seating Riser

Nov. 20, 2023

Collaborating with longtime partners at Schuler Shook, Sightline custom-designed and installed an eight-level, state-of-the-art seating riser that comfortably accommodates nearly 250 people at the Minnesota Opera’s Luminary Arts Center. The modular system is highly adaptable to match the look and feel of the space, giving the venue the flexibility to configure different seating arrangements depending on the performance. The owners sought a clean aesthetic with a completely free-standing structure void of wall or floor anchors. To achieve this, closure panels were installed to prevent chairs from sliding off the rear of the platforms and custom brackets were secured to the understructure’s Relia beams and cross bracings for added stability. Decorative skirting conceals the supports upholding the riser for a refined, finished appearance. The Sightline team also fabricated handrail and stair units integrated with aisle lighting to safely guide guests to and from their seats.
