Studio T+L's goal is to make the theatre design process easy for the architect and the rest of the design team. We do this in several ways. First, as theatre professionals we understand the needs and wants of the owner and users. We translate them into language that the architecture and engineering professionals can understand. We supplement the translation with memos, sketches, and real world examples so that the design team fully understands what the client is asking of them. We also translate the needs of the design and engineering team into language that the owner and theatre artists understand. By facilitating communication we ensure that everyone is working toward a common goal.
Second, we provide the design team with all the information they need. We provide the architect with preliminary layouts of the stage and backstage spaces to assure that their size and organization is appropriate to the client's needs. We design, document, and specify the theatre's infrastructure and systems, such as rigging, stage lighting, and seating. At the same time we provide the architect and engineers with the information that they need to support our systems, such as structural loads, electrical loads, and layouts of the floor under the seats.
Our exact services are based on the project’s scale and scope. Our full list of our theatre planning and design services is here, and a more detailed description of our work is below. It is important to note that we do not work in a vacuum. We believe that design is as much a process requiring the active involvement of the owner and design team, as it is a product delivered at the end of construction. The development and progress of our work is dependent on input and steady collaboration with the architect, engineers, owner, and users.
