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 expert 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.

The redesigned Theatre Projects

Welcome to our new website. Intuitive and dynamic, the redesigned site is full of information about us and the theatres we design—showcasing our history, the work we’re doing now, and the exciting things to come!

You might have already noticed our new logo. We call it the “roundel”—it’s a symbol of our core design philosophy: bringing people together.

Looking for work? We're hiring a Lighting Designer in our London office and a Design Drafter in our Connecticut office!

We’re an exciting company and always looking for new team members with theatre, architecture, or engineering backgrounds. Are you dedicated, hard-working, and fun? Let's see if we're a good fit.
