Practice

We opened our doors in 2004 and we are really proud to have grown into the leading theatre, acoustic and digital design consultancy. Our clients, our people, our collaborative approach and our commitment to do great work have made this possible.

We love what we do.

History

We’ve come a long way since our first project with London’s Siobhan Davies Dance Centre. From a troupe of just four to a six-studio collective of more than seventy, we’re just getting started.

Values

We believe the best work comes from a culture of collaboration. We bring talented people together, build long-term relationships and share ideas, so we can create the best possible spaces for you.

People

We’re a collective of designers, strategists, musicians, acousticians, developers, creatives and technologists. We all share a love of performance, a belief the show must go on, and a desire to do great work.
