Theatre Planning Expertise
Our Theatres Work! From the first idea for a new or renovated theatre to the opening night gala, we collaborate with our clients to design superb spaces that meet their artistic and operational goals. Everyone on our staff began their careers designing stage productions. Over the years we have used our deep understanding of how theatre is made and how theaters work to design facilities that thoughtully support artists and their performances. Our theatre consulting projects include:
The early part of our work involves getting the building right. We spend a great deal of time working on the size, shape, adjacencies, and infrastructure of every space in the building, both back stage and front of house. We start with the stage and house by looking at the performer/audience relationship, and work outward. We create drawings and write reports to keep the entire team informed of our work, and to confirm that we're meeting the owner's expectations.
Once we understand the types of productions and the needs of the users, we turn our attention to the systems that support the productions. We design, draw, and specify the systems, and provide the architect and engineers with information they need to integrate our work into the building.
