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.

When music and architecture meet

Our principal acoustic consultant, Sébastien Jouan, is teaching at an intensive summer program at Les Ecoles d’Art Américaines de Fontainebleau (the Fontainebleau Schools) in Paris this July. 

The theme of the program is biomimicry—the design of structures that are modeled on biological entities and processes—and his masterclass “When Music and Architecture Meet” explores the architectural evolution of performing arts spaces for music, opera, and drama. Sébastien is also hosting a workshop with Jean-Guy Lecat (formerly the set designer for Peter Brooks at the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord in Paris) on week four of the program to continue the biomimicry theme.

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.
