We design extraordinary spaces

When you’re in an amazing performance space, you can feel it. Theatre Projects knows how to create performance spaces that come alive. 

We speak the languages of construction, design, and the arts. From visioning through design and construction, we provide advice on planning and design decisions that affect the art, the architecture, how the performance technology functions, and how artists and audience will use each space. 

Working closely with clients, users, architects, and builders, we apply our experience of what makes a dynamic performance space—intimacy, density, flexibility, and simplicity—to create extraordinary spaces.

Introducing our Denver office!

We’re thrilled to announce that on June 1 we’re opening a second US office in Denver. Wanting to be more easily available to our clients in the western and mid-western US, we looked at locations from Seattle to Austin. And we loved the central-ness of Denver! It’s only a few hours by plane to Los Angeles, Portland, Minneapolis, Dallas, Chicago, and Atlanta. It’s also one of the fastest growing cities in the US and ranked among the best places to live in the country.

Find out more about why we love Denver and meet the team who'll be running our new office.

Duke’s arts renaissance culminates with new Rubenstein Arts Center

A February 3 open house featuring visual and performing arts demonstrations, dancers, painters, and live music, provided the first glimpse inside Duke University’s 72,000-square-foot Rubenstein Arts Center. “The Ruby,” as it's been affectionally dubbed, will be home to the university’s Dance Program and its Art of the Moving Image Program. The opening marks the culmination of Duke’s arts renaissance, which began in 2005 with the opening of the Nasher Museum of Art and continued with two recent auditorium renovations. The modernist glass facility establishes a highly visible focal point for the arts at Duke—but that’s just the beginning.

Theatre Projects' acoustics team improves Opera House at Versailles Palace

Our acoustics team is currently working in the Royal Opera of Versailles—one of the most prestigious and historic opera houses in Europe—to improve sound quality, programming capability, audience experience, and performance flexibility in the historic venue.

The 712-seat Opera House in France’s Versailles Palace wanted to better accommodate baroque orchestral music in addition to their usual operatic programming, so Theatre Projects was selected to design and specify a demountable acoustic wall that supports greater sound reflection.

University of Guadalajara opens their Conjunto de Artes Escenicas

In the late 1990s, the Universidad de Guadalajara developed a plan to create one of the world’s most wide-reaching and comprehensive cultural districts. That vision has been gradually taking shape ever since. Now, with the opening of Conjunto de Artes Escenicas, a beautiful multivenue arts center, the university’s long-held vision is closer than ever to reality. With a set of versatile spaces for large-scale touring acts, student-produced works, performing arts education, and community arts groups, the university can rightfully claim one of the finest and most versatile cultural districts in Mexico.
