Benaroya Hall, home of Seattle Symphony, is Seattle's first facility designed exclusively for symphonic music performances. Located on an entire city block in downtown Seattle, the Hall serves as a focal point of the city's urban core. Benaroya Hall has two spaces for musical performances: the 2,500-seat S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium and the 540-seat Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall. The Norcliffe Founders Room, Soundbridge Seattle Symphony Music Discovery Center and a 430-space parking garage, accessible from Second Avenue, are also housed within Benaroya Hall. Benaroya Hall received a 2001 American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Honor Award for outstanding architecture.
