The theatre is situated above a shopping mall, which presented several challenges in designing the theatre space and supporting accommodation to be functional. Specifically, the backstage areas needed to be carefully planned so that props and scenery could be brought into the building without disrupting the activities in the shopping mall below. The Aksra Theatre was designed to be luxurious, employing gold leaf in the wall bass-relief decorations and elegant furnishings in the public areas. The theatre itself is a single tiered ‘horse-shoe’ style auditorium, presenting traditional Thai performances and King Power Sakorn Puppet performances.
