Wauwatosa Hart Park Improvements – Muellner Building Expansion & Rotary Stage

Muellner Building Community Center

Built during the Great Depression under the Works Progress Administration, the building served as a multi-purpose facility for public and private functions and events within the community.  The program called for a newer gathering area for the city’s senior citizen organizations which hold card parties, dances, socials and featured speakers.  The remodeling includes a new fitness center, aerobics room, creative arts and crafts room, continuing education room, computer access and tax and legal counseling area.  The building houses a permanent historical display of the original plans and historical photographs of the building.  The curling club will continue to use the building for practice and league play.

Rotary Stage

Zimmerman produced a concept design suitable for fundraising for a new band shell/performance venue in Wauwatosa’s Hart Park. The firm provided a considerable amount of research of similar facilities in other communities. The performance stage was designed to accommodate a range of performances from small band and orchestra groups to local school bands and includes provisions for temporary expansion for even larger groups such as a symphonic orchestra performance. A wide variety of seating opportunities surround the venue including permanent tiered seats immediately adjacent to the theater stage as well as grass seats beyond.
