After the Innovation Center addition was completed, a theater to demonstrate Shure's equipment's precise acoustic qualities was added within the original office building.

The designated location was in a constrained structural space not ideal for theater functions, so placement of the stage and seating was challenging.
We resolved this by cutting an opening through two floors and maximizing height.

​This finely-tuned theater showcases Shure equipment’s performance capabilities, supporting its mission and brand.

Melding the structure and existing column location with the theater's layout required careful planning and was achieved by integrating the column into the elegant design.
