TheatreSquared’s new 50,000 SF home unites two states-of-the art theatres, eight artist apartments, a rehearsal space, offices, education and community spaces, on-site workshops, outdoor terraces at three levels, and an always-open café/bar at the active corner of West & Spring Street.
The Theatre Commons is welcoming and fascinating, alive with activity. It is a place that invites, hints at the unusual, and suggests something significant will happen.
The design embraces TheatreSquared’s unique ethos of audience inclusivity, intimacy, and interaction with its new building organized around its multi-story public space.
The main public space is framed in structural steel. The elevated corridors, steel guardrails, and exposed infrastructure recall the back-of-house systems that make the theater experience possible.

In the West Theatre, the ‘core’ of the building, are brilliant performances, intimate and unmediated, celebrating the joys and struggles of what it means to be human.
The design of the Spring Theatre elevates the space above a generic black box encouraging experimentation.
Natural finishes like board foam concrete, blackened steel and recycled wood articulate the exterior and interior.
TheatreSquared is a world-class theatre for Northwest Arkansas.
