A major concern was the outdated air conditioning system that was completely reversed in the new design, with air supplied from below the seats and exhausted up high in the space. In order to feed the air from below, a new ceiling with a soundproofed plenum was installed in the Cabaret Room below the theater. Besides the structural considerations, necessary when cutting holes into an almost hundred-year old concrete slab, the need for absolutely quiet air dictated the construction of a large plenum space with soft lining and multiple layers of gypsum board in the space below. –Peter Grueneisen.
