Orchestra is a passionate advocate for the role theatres play in building strong sustainable communities by creating environments for artistic expression and social interation.  Founded in 1992 our staff of architects, designers and reseachers work with leading cultural and educational institutions around the country to plan spaces that reflect our client's highest aspriations.  Working with these non-profits cultural institutions has taught us to examine alternative designs, look for innovation, respect the existing context and provide economical solutions.  We have been responsible for programming and designing over 150 Theatres ranging from historic restorations to new construction. 


We bring a knowledge of every aspect of performing arts architecture.  Our design process is both comprehensive and collaborative the results in finely tuned environments that enhance the art of the performers, artisans and technicians.  Moreover, our theatres are designed to meet the criteria of affordability, efficiency and sustainability that are so critical to the success of any nonprofit.
