Our twin passions are

About Studio T+L

Studio T+L, LLC is a dedicated group of lighting designers and theatre consultants. By listening to our client’s desires and collaborating with the design team we develop a holistic design that makes the most of each project’s practical requirements and aesthetic goals. We listen carefully to understand our client’s unique needs. We put our client’s best interests first and work with the entire project team to uphold those interests. In collaborating with our clients, architects, and engineers, our mission is to bring each project to life with a thoughtful, original, appropriate design. Our passion pays off.  65% of our projects are with returning clients.

Theatre Planning + Design

We know the theatres we design are critical tools for the artists using them. As theatre consultants we focus all of our production experience on designing performing arts facilities that work, and that support the work of our theatre colleagues.

Our mission is to share our experience making theatre and each theatre’s unique requirements with the rest of the building design team. We partner with each project's artists, architects, engineers and acousticians to realize its goals through imaginative, cost-conscious solutions. This collaboration results in an intimate, lively and technically superior space for audience members and artists to share the experience of live performance.

Architectural Lighting Design

We design unique architectural and installation lighting projects for a wide range of clients. By collaborating with each architect to understand the building’s volume and form, we develop a lighting design specifically tailored to each project’s needs.

We bring an intimate knowledge of the physics and psychology of light, a theatrical sensibility, and an extensive history of successful projects to every design we undertake. Our work combines design artistry and technical skill with real world issues of energy efficiency, maintenance, and code compliance to provide a winning lighting design.
