New York studio opened by UK theatre consultants

Theatre design consultancy Charcoalblue is set to open a studio in New York.

The new studio will be launched by one of Charcoalblue’s founding members, Jon Stevens.

The London-based company, which launched in 2004, has recently worked on projects including opera company Glyndebourne’s Ebert Recital Room rehearsal space and the Royal Shakespeare Company’s headquarters in Stratford-Upon-Avon, for which it received a Stirling Prize architecture nomination.

It is currently working on re-designing the National Theatre’s new seating and technical systems for its refurbished Cottesloe Theatre.

The new studio will see the design consultancy continuing its work with the American-based Chicago Shakespeare Theater and Steppenwolf Theatre Company.

Stevens said: “Having just taken part in the North American Theatre, Engineering and Architecture Conference, as contributors and sponsors, we’re very much looking forward to exploring a new way of working with American performing arts companies. At the same time we look forward to offering the distinctive Charcoalblue collaborative approach to new audiences.”

Managing partner Andy Hayles added: “I’m excited that Jon Stevens is to head-up our US operation. Jon and I first worked together as theatre electricians at the Lyceum Theatre in Sheffield and have continued a fulfilling working relationship across two decades of shows, concerts, buildings and parties all over the world.”
