As consultants to arts and cultural organizations, owners and architects, we often help review or write  comprehensive building programs that fully meet  the requirements of the users. We collaborate with owners, artistic and management staff, architects, and users to help plan and design auditoriums, front and back-of-house layouts, lobbies and ticket offices, control rooms, costume and set shops and offices.

We use proprietary, state-of-the-art CAD systems to render seating plans that insure good sightlines, access, ADA compliance, comfort, and visual variety. We are typically the owners’ and architect’s source on the best performance lighting and stage equipment.

We design and specify  equipment based on our understanding of production requirements.
