Our Design Philosophy
Our work has been shaped by the evolving belief that acoustical design must spring from a personal and empathetic understanding of the needs of a facility’s occupants and users. We also believe that a building’s architecture should embody the acoustical elements essential to the technical and aesthetic success of each project and each performance.
Founded in 1992 by Robert Mahoney, our firm has provided acoustical design and consulting services to some of the most celebrated performance venues and worship spaces around the world. Our projects have ranged from the design of Denver’s multimillion-dollar Ellie Caulkins Opera House to the renovation of the influential Playwrights’ Center in Minneapolis. Other current projects include Flint Barn, a new performance venue being built by Karen and Peter Flint on a nature preserve in Delaware; and the Frank Gehry-designed performing arts complex at the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan.
