Art & Entertainment
If “all the world’s a stage,” then making sure they are constructed well is particularly important. With more than 50 years spent protecting precious art, literature, and performers, we know how to customize our approach to meet everything from acoustic needs and aesthetic sensibilities to huge counter-weight systems in performance halls. With experience in the retrofit of old, civic landmarks in urban settings as well as new constructions on college campuses, Forell | Elsesser has particular knowledge of the varying requirements for these spaces. Designers ourselves, we combine experience with out-of-the-box thinking to create solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of each project.
