Theaters


Our love of theater and set design goes hand-in-hand with our fascination with theater buildings themselves, from the open-air stages of Ancient Greece and Rome to the grand opera houses of Europe. Each one contains the ghosts of productions past; you can feel the energy when you take your seat. We are also students of the ways that theaters contain such surprising progressions of spaces—the way they heighten anticipation and suspense with corridors, atriums, stairwells, and, finally, curtains.
