Performing arts venues can be used for a variety of events ranging from concerts, recitals, drama, dance, and opera. These buildings have an important part to play for communities and in some cases may be a community’s only access to the performing arts.

We design spaces that can adapt use for a variety of settings from amplified performance to spoken word and natural acoustic concerts. Understanding the way spaces will be used, the different users, requirements and experience is crucial to design success.

Our expertise includes new venues and existing and heritage venues that have evolved over time. Improvements in acoustic and theatre technology allow an increased range of uses of performing arts venues, particularly for heritage buildings and being upgraded for contemporary use. Our multidisciplinary specialists and theatre experts collaborate closely with architects and clients to create leading edge user experiences in performing arts venues.
