This broader understanding of design and construction enhanced the office’s residential design skills. Stephan has led projects that included transformation of an historic building into the multiplex Beacon Cinema in Pittsfield, the conversion of an athletic field house into the 32,000 square foot multi-use Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre complex at Shakespeare and Co. in Lenox, and the award-winning Great Barrington Fire Station. Recently, he was proud to lead the design of CATA’s new home in Great Barrington. Stephan’s focus as an Architect remains on contributing to the enhancement of life in the Berkshires for residents and institutions alike
