Kosinski Architecture


Kosinski has been involved on an ongoing basis with a theater development and management group on various redevelopment options for Stratford's Landmark 1,600 seat Theater and related facilities - including on the planning and design of this proposal which won the rights to redevelop the property. The core of the project entails the complete refurbishment and comprehensive upgrades to an existing facility left derelict for decades. Upgrade items include the building envelope, interior finishes, seating, bathroom facilities, systems, and the complete overhaul of theatrical technical infrastructure. As part of those upgrades a new two story grand foyer addition is planned to provide a sorely lacking main entrance, new ticket and coat room facilities, food service, gathering and dining with views to the adjacent river and Long Island Sound beyond. Various options for various associated complimentary facilities were studied and presented; including an inn with convention and dining facilities, a visitor center with convention and dining facilities, a black box theater with a dinner cabaret, and a black box theater with a food court. The concept has been to support ticket sales with synergistic activities on the site. We worked closely with users, stakeholders and the developer to conceptual these options.
