Hoff Family Arts and Culture Center

An Ensemble Facility

APMA worked with the Iowa West Foundation and Pottawattamie Arts, Culture and Entertainment (PACE) to design the Hoff Family Arts & Culture Center, a world-class facility that features the 282-seat Schlott Performing Arts Theater and a multi-use facility with artist studio space, exhibit areas, classrooms, rehearsal space, and more. This complex serves as a permanent home to Chanticleer Community Theater and the Kanesville Symphony Orchestra, as well as administrative offices and rehearsal space for the American Midwest Ballet and the Kitchen Council, a food startup incubator.

Originally built in 1894 by the Chicago-based McCormick Harvesting Machine Company the building was used as a branch house and dealership for the company's products. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.
