Performing Arts

Long before the patron enters the hall, the performer takes the stage, and the technician dims the lights, architecture helps shape and enhance the performing arts experience. Our work in the design of theaters and performing arts venues balances functionality and aesthetics with
dramatic and inspiring spaces supported by carefully planned and integrated technology, systems, and back-of-house operations.

We have designed a broad range of venues, from small community and civic theaters to nationally recognized concert halls and opera houses. Our portfolio also includes auditoriums and state-of-the-art academic performing arts centers, as well as many historic theaters. We are proficient in addressing the unique challenges inherent in this specialty, such as acoustical integrity, accessibility, and operational efficiency. Most importantly, we understand the need to design transcendent environments—uplifting spaces that help create magical, memorable performances.
