Hattiloo Theatre

One of only four black-owned repertory theatres in the U.S. relocated from its start-up space to an existing parking lot in an urban entertainment district currently undergoing a resurgence. The new building allows the region’s only black repertory theatre to have its own identity and establish a presence on the corner of a main artery into the district.

The new theatre had a modest budget for a modern day theatre based on other precedents and case studies. Knowing there was a tight budget, we formulated an early strategy with two goals: 1. Define components that were permanent and components that could be added over time based on continued fundraising and profit (this would allow the theatre to add lighting, etc., but not sacrifice building quality), and 2. Keep it simple.
